NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — For the first time, Nashville is welcoming the Grand Prix, which is one of several events this summer growing Nashville’s economy.
“An international event like the Grand Prix here in Nashville, it projects globally, it attracts people globally and that hospitality community is really important,” Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Ralph Schulz said. “A lot of visitors come here, pay taxes, and help fuel and fund services and growth in Nashville.”
As the U.S. economy bounces back after the deep dive it took with pandemic restrictions, a new report from Stessa ranked Nashville as having the most economic growth in the U.S.
“I think the thing that will surprise a lot of Nashvillians is that we continue to grow, even during the COVID period,” Schulz said.
