BUFFALO, NY - Now that the NCAA Tournament has wrapped up in Buffalo, organizers and local leaders look back at the event to see where improvements can be made in the future.
Visit Buffalo Niagara says the tournament brought in $5.2 million to the local economy.
Patrick Kaler, VBN President and CEO, said visitors took notice of positive changes made since the last time the Queen City hosted the event.
"People were saying, this is a completely different city than what we had here in 2010," Kaler said. "With all the development happening, people recognize what's taking place here."
Kaler was especially pleased with how VBN and volunteers were able to use social media to promote local businesses and attractions.
