Together for the Gospel Contributes $2.4 Million Towards Local Economy

From: The Lane Report

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — {More than 8,000 pastors and ministers from around the country will converge upon Louisville for the 2012 Together for the Gospel Conference (T4G).

The conference is the second to utilize both The Kentucky International Convention Center and KFC Yum! Center, both Kentucky State Fair Board managed facilities. The Conference began in 2006 by four pastors with the goal of encouraging other church leaders to stand together for the same gospel.

One of the founders is Dr. Albert Mohler, President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. Since 2006 the conference has grown by nearly 3,000 attendees, and boasts 4,682 total committed room nights at area hotels, with an estimated total economic impact of $2.4 million.

"It’s a really unique conference; we have church leaders from all over the country from different ministries and denominations that come together and are excited to learn about one another,” said Conference Director Paul Medler. “It is a great experience for all involved and we are really looking forward to it.”}

My Thoughts: T4G is a conference that I have been involved with for the last 6 years. I decided to post this article to illustrate the economic impact that a large conference can have on the surrounding area. When hosting a conference or event safety and security needs to be a concern for the host committee. Feel free to email me for more information on how to get started for your upcoming event.
