Sports is big business in Gwinnett County. Hall's expertise shed some light on the professional and amateur sports landscape and what lies ahead. During the interview, he talked about the economic impact of sports in Gwinnett County, and what the county's four major sports properties bring to the area, both economically and for the area's quality of life.
According to Hall, "Our studies show that the annual PGA Champions event alone has a $10-$12 million economic impact on Gwinnett County, and combined with the local sports franchises (Braves, Gladiators), we're looking at a $20-$25 million dollar annual impact."
