People tend to spend their time and money at the shore or in the mountains on holiday weekends, while hotels in the city normally struggle to fill rooms. Ed Grose, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association says “Made In America” is turning a weakness into a strength.

“A two-day concert, where people might be inclined to rent a room, it’s a big help for us,” Grose explains.

And Grose says there is significant trickle down as a result of higher occupancy rates.

“When there’s more rooms rented over a normally slow weekend, such as Labor Day, it’s gonna mean more hours for the front line employees.”

That means even more money being pumped back into the local economy.
