Above-Average Growth Expected for Live Entertainment, Spectator Sports

CLEVELAND, Feb. 22, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — US consumer spending on recreation services is forecast to rise 3.4% annually to 2021, according to Recreation: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Faster gains are expected in the Live Entertainment and Spectator Sports segments of the market, bolstered by growth in disposable personal income and a shift in consumer preference toward spending on experiences rather than possessions.

In addition, recreation providers are appealing to an increasingly diverse population with new amenities and entertainment offerings. Features such as nursing suites in sports stadiums cater to a growing base of female sports fans. In the Live Entertainment segment, diverse musical acts are drawing consumers of various ages to music festivals. For example, Goldenvoice’s Desert Trip festival in October 2016 featured notable musicians and groups that are especially appealing to baby boomers, such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, and The Who.

These and other key insights are featured in Recreation: United States. This report forecasts US personal consumption expenditures (PCE) on recreation services in US dollars to 2020. Total spending is segmented by service in terms of:

  • gambling
  • amusement parks and related services
  • clubs and participant sports
  • live entertainment
  • spectator sports
  • movie theaters
  • museums and libraries.

To illustrate historical trends, total PCE and the various segments are provided in annual series from 2005 to 2015.

Entrepreneur Not ‘Eclipsed’ by Diagnosis

Reading Time: 2 minutes

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 20, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — There’s no good time to learn that your new reality consists of one of the scariest words known to man – cancer. But John Jerit received this news at what he now considers to have been the worst time. Less than two years out from an event that he has literally been waiting for his entire life, John was shocked to hear that his annual prostate screening uncovered cancerous cells.

As of December 2015, life for John would never be the same.

But, this life-altering moment didn’t create the kind of bone-chilling fear one would assume hits when you learn of your own cancer diagnosis. In fact, John admits he was only moderately concerned about how the cancer would affect his health, family and finances. On the contrary, when he learned that cancer was now part of his life story, John’s thoughts turned to Aug. 21, 2017. This date marks the first time since 1979 that the U.S. will experience a total solar eclipse…and John planned to live to witness it, one way or another.

As owner and CEO of American Paper Optics, the largest manufacturer of 3D and safe solar eclipse glasses in the world, John’s career dream has been to personally view and make sure that every American is afforded the opportunity to safely view this eclipse. In February 2016, John’s dream slowly morphed into a strong possibility as he successfully underwent robotic surgery. Then, as he started down his road to recovery, John became more and more inspired to get eclipse glasses in the hands of as many people as possible.

John wanted people across the country to understand that no matter where they are geographically located on Aug. 21, they’ll need to wear the CE and ISO-certified glasses that APO makes to safely view the eclipse. The glasses, which are close to 1,000 times darker than regular sunglasses, are THE safest way to view the solar eclipse because they filter out 100% of harmful ultra-violet and infrared rays and 99.999% of intense visible light. Additionally, the glasses can be custom branded to fit any company’s design preferences. Keep Reading
