I was one of the 1.2 million people who witnessed the Three Queens line up along the River Mersey last month. For me, it was a brilliant event and I feltproud to belong to the city on that day and be apart of what was happening onthe River Mersey, and  to witness theevent which saw them all line up together and could be viewed all along the Liverpool, Wirral and Sefton waterfronts.

Iwas even more delighted when I read just how much the event had had an impacton the economy and brought in £32.9m tothe region.

Ithink the overall effect on the city and the amount of tourism it brought wasjust fantastic.

Apparentlyon average, each visitor spent £27, 48% of visitors were from outside the cityregion while 6 % of visitors came from oversees including locations such asNorth America, New Zealand and Ireland.

The most popular visitors were day trippers at 58%. Some 38% of all visitorsstayed over for at least one night - the average length of stay was 3.4 nights.

The spending analysis found that on average day trippers spent £34.27 perperson and staying visitors from the North West spent £138.07 per person.

Staying visitors from the rest of the UK spent £359.09 per person and stayingoverseas visitors spent £427.66 per person.

Having grown up in Liverpool, over the last five years have seen the citychange dramatically, and for me feel its now the best I have ever known it. I amvery proud to be living and working in such a fantastic city.

Sellick Partnership's Liverpool office will be in its fourth year next year and I feel theimpact of the economy is driving new businesses into the city and also the existing businesses in the citycentre are having to grow their finance teams which is excellent for us as financerecruiters.
