Comments Off on Host Community Perceptions of the Impact of Events: A Comparison of Different Event Themes in Urban and Regional Communities

This report provides the findings from a comparative study of the social impacts of three events located in different regions and differentiated by theme. The three events were the Australian Grand Prix, the Moomba Festival, and the Horsham Art Is… Festival. The key objective of this report was to examine host community perceptions of event impacts across a range of events and host communities, specifically a comparison of different themed events in the same community, and a comparison of similar themed events in different sized communities.

This report provides estimates of the contribution of tourism to the economy of Queensland. It replaces an earlier report released in March 2007. The estimates from the earlier report have been revised to reflect revisions to benchmark national data, which were incorporated in the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) National Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) released on 11 May 2007.

This report provides Summary spreadsheet estimates of the contribution of tourism to the economies of each of the Australian states and territories. It should be read in conjunction with individual Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) reports for each of the state and territories, which were prepared by the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre (STCRC) in March 2007 and released in revised and updated form in November 2007. The information in these reports has been reconciled against the most recent national TSA results, which were published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) on 11 May 2007.
