An economic impact shows Canadian Western Agribition provides a big boost to the City of Regina and the province each year.

Agribition CEO Chris Lane says SJ Research Services conducted the study following the 2017 show:

"We found out that in Regina alone, that's about $44.5 million a year, and if you expand that to the entire province, Agribition has an economic benefit of $73 million."

He notes the economic impact of the 2017 show is up $17 million dollars from the last study which was done in 2015.

Canadian Western Agribition is the largest livestock show in Canada.

Lane says they also wanted a tourism breakdown.

"What the study found was out of 126,000 visitors at Agribition, more than 53,000 visitors came outside of the region - classified as tourists - and what we're finding compared to the previous years is they're staying longer, and they're spending more money. In 2017 the tourist impact was about $50 million in Regina, and that's spending on everything from restaurants and hotels nad transportation to shopping as well."

This year’s event runs November 19 to 24 at Regina’s Evraz Place.
