In addition to these numbers, the city of Indio will bring in about $3.18 million in ticket taxes by an estimated 273,000 people coming to the Coachella Valley.

“I guess you could argue that we import money and we export, quite frankly, memories and some suntans,” said Michael Bracken, chief economist of Development Management Group. “We knew that the dollar amount figures were going to go up, but we weren't realizing how much they were going to go up,” said Indio Mayor Glenn Miller.
