“The weekend hotel rooms that are used during this tournament, and the impact on downtown Davenport restaurants and bars are significant any time of year, but especially enjoyed in late October. The QCCVB successfully negotiated a package deal with ACS Alliance last year to continue hosting the Iowa State Championships in 2017 and to add the ACS Midwest Championships with over 900 players in January of 2018 at the RiverCenter. The addition of the ACS Midwest will bring an additional $500,000 in economic impact to the region in the middle of winter.”
