ROI / By the Numbers
The 2015 Open Doors Organization study quantifies how much adults with disabilities spend on just their own travel — $17.3 billion annually. Since these individuals typically travel with one or more other adults, the economic impact is actually double, or $34.6 billion.
The Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Paralympic Games was one of the most watched television events in Channel 4's 30 year history drawing almost 8 million viewers.
Adaptive skiers who use sitskis and own their own equipment have a minimum investment of $3000 to $7000 USD, before skis, apparel and bindings. Outriggers, which are the least expensive items are around $400.00
Disabled consumers are the largest visible minority consumer group in North America, spending over one trillion dollars per year. Disabled people make up over 15% of the population of the USA (55 million) and there are over 4 million wheelchair users.
