Abstract [en]

Socialization motivates people to visit events and social interactions between event visitors influence their experience of the event. Consumer-to-consumer interactions in service settings and leisure activities have received increased attention in research; however, very few studies have focused on and analyzed the impact of other visitors on an individual’s event experience. The purpose of this study is to explore how interaction between event visitors influences the individual’s total event experience and how events can be designed in respect to such social interactions. The conclusions are based on a literature review and empirical data collected at a Swedish music festival. The research found that social interactions between event visitors are an important part of the event experience and the level of satisfaction for the individual attending an event. Social interactions consist of three main types: known-group socialization; external socialization; audience socialization. Every part of the event (theme and program, setting, consumables, service) can be designed to facilitate positive experiences and to constrain negative experiences related to such interactions.

Abstract [en]

This article describes and analyses the process in which the establishment of a Christmas market led to an attempt to establish a regional destination brand named "Delightful Christmas". Our focus is on the network dynamics of the process, in particular its multi-project network characteristics. Empirical findings are based on qualitative data from personal interviews, participant observation and documentation in an action research approach. The process is analysed as a so-called project network (Hellgren & Stjernberg, 1995) involving different actors having different aims in event and destination brand development, thus creating a process with actors of existing, but resource-lacking, dependencies. Despite the disagreements between actors, the common beliefs and hopes for the integrated destination theme remained and innovative work continued for about three years in an environment where conditions were difficult due to insufficient financial resources, project coordination and long-term strategic planning. Conclusions concern the dynamics of a complex multi-project network organization and how its failure can be explained.

Abstract [en]

Based on Grant's (1996) knowledge-based view of the fi rm, Jafari's (2001) knowledge-based platform ofthinking and Schianetz, Kavanagh and Lockington (2007a) Learning Tourism Destination, the KnowledgeDestination Framework (Höpken, Fuchs, Keil & Lexhagen, 2011) is introduced and a Web-based DestinationManagement Information system (DMIS) is presented. It is illustrated how knowledge creation,exchange and application processes can be improved by applying a Business Intelligence approach. By focusingon Online-Analytical Processing (OLAP), exemplarily for the Swedish tourism destination of Åre, it ishighlighted how DMIS can be used as a monitor for measuring the proportion of tourists with the smallestecological footprint (Dolnicar, Crouch & Long, 2008; Dolnicar & Leisch, 2008). After a discussion of studylimitations, future research steps are outlined. Th e paper concludes by providing some critical remarks on thepolitical economics of sustainability on a global scale and by outlining policy implications for the governanceof sustainability at the level of tourism destinations.

Abstract [en]

This paper defines and conceptualizes hallmark events, as there is neither clarity in the literature about what the term means nor the exact roles they should play within a community and tourism context. This generates a model for use by communities and other event-tourism developers. Our model is structured around three main outcome goals (attraction, image and branding, and the community) and three major process goals (sustainability, marketing, and organization and ownership). This paper is the first attempt to define and conceptualize a critical concept in both the event tourism and event management literature.
