Author(s) (if known): Carmel Foley, Katie Schlenker, Deborah Edwards, Bruce Hayllar
Year published: 2010
Published by: Business Events Sydney
Publisher location (city or country): Australia
Summary of research content/aims: The purpose of the study is to provide an empirically-based assessment of the range and impact of contributions made by business events to host communities beyond the tourism dimension. The project is classified as a scoping study, delivering baseline data on which future stages of research could be built (and, indeed, two further studies have been published subsequently in 2012 and 2014). The benefits are shown to include: knowledge expansion, networking/relationships/collaboration, educational outcomes, fundraising and future research capacity, raising awareness and profiling, showcasing and destination reputation
