Comments Off on National Business Events Study: An Evaluation of the Australian Business Events Sector

The National Business Events Study (NBES) is a comprehensive evaluation that examines the  size and scope of the Business Events sector in Australia. Each component of the study was underpinned by information obtained from business event venues regarding the number of events and participants they hosted over a full year. The data provides the most comprehensive overview of the business events sector since the 1999 Bureau of Tourism Research report, Meetings Make their Mark.

This report aims to develop a better understanding of the contribution of the restaurant sector to a tourist destination’s attractiveness. Specifically, this report identifies and describes three types of market segments, the ‘Young Market’, the ‘Affluent Market’, and the ‘Mature Market’, that value culinary experiences, and are influenced in their travel destination choice by the type of culinary prospects a location has to offer. The study  explores in detail each segment’s perceptions and opinions in relation to what they value in a restaurant when on holiday and why.
