En este artículo se analiza el impacto económico y mediático para la ciudad de Gijón de la celebración del Campeonato del Mundo de Patinaje de Velocidad, celebrado en septiembre del año 2008. Para medir el im¬pacto económico se utilizan las tablas input-output de Asturias transformándolas para calcular los coeficientes municipales, coeficientes que son los que se utilizan para medir el impacto económico en términos de valor añadido bruto y empleo. Se considera que los eventos deportivos y las ciudades son marcas para estudiar el impacto mediático. Con un servicio de media clipping se controlan las noticias aparecidas sobre el evento y sobre la ciudad de Gijón, antes, durante y después de la celebración del Campeonato. Los resultados económi¬cos son positivos principalmente por el gasto de los no residentes controlados por encuestas, en cambio el impacto mediático no fue muy relevante excepto en el sector ligado al patinaje.

With a media clipping service are handled the news appeared on the event and the city of Gijon, before, during and after the celebration of the Championships. The economic results are positive prin¬cipally for the expense of not residents controlled by surveys; on the other hand the media impact was not very relevant except in the sector linked to skating.
