Business leaders huddle on prospects of another N.J. Super Bowl

It could be one and done for a Super Bowl in the Garden State — if a survey by the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce is any indication.

 

More than half of the business leaders surveyed said the state should not pursue hosting pro football’s championship game again, said Tom Bracken, chamber president.

“From the central part of the state south, there was probably minimal impact, so there’s probably a little bit of apathy in that question — meaning that it didn’t help me, so why waste any kind of state resources on that again,” he said.

The survey results also indicated government regulations are longer the top concern of business executives who are now more focused on consumer spending.

Nearly 90 percent of the business leaders expect their companies will either maintain or increase staffing over the next 12 months because they anticipate a rise in revenue.
