Langley noted that 2018 figures are slightly off due to the absence of the Vintage Gran Prix and the Sunday cancellation (weather concerns).  He said, “Overall, the Concours is by far the largest single event contributing to our economy. This event generates almost twice the economic impact of the Shrimp Festival – the largest event by attendance.”
