N.H. Reacts To Possibility Of Boston 2024 Summer Olympics

Jan 9, 2015

With Boston a step closer to hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics, there’s hope the event could have a spillover effect on the New Hampshire economy.

New Hampshire’s tourism director Victoria Cimino tells WMUR her office will be watching whether Boston ultimately is chosen as host.

She says having the Olympics in New England would be an exciting opportunity for the region.

The U.S. Olympic Committee last night chose Boston’s bid as its entry in the global competition.

Boston beat out Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

A group of students at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College actually helped in the development of Boston’s bid.

The group projected ticket revenues and researched ways to boost revenue through ticket sales.
