Visit Buffalo Niagara and the Buffalo Niagara Sports Commission are working to prepare local attractions, hotels, restaurants and breweries for the upcoming influx of visitors expected for the NCAA Tournament.

VBN held an information session on Tuesday afternoon to apprise its tourism industry partners of what to expect when rounds one and two of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament occur in Buffalo on March 16 and 18.

The tournament is expected to bring thousands of visitors downtown and conservatively generate $8 million in economic impact.
