Comments Off on Estimating Demand for a Special Event and the Events Contribution to a Regional Economy

This project was aimed at finding out the relationship between the demand for a special event and the schedule of entrance fees for the event. Two special events, part of a wider event, the Hobart Summer Festival, were examined: Taste of Tasmania and the Australian Wooden Boat Festival.

This study originated from a research program conducted by the South East Queensland Regional Water Quality Management Strategy, a multi-agency community/ industry/government partnership group. The first phase of the study produced a final report on ship-sourced pollution in the Brisbane River and Moreton Bay. Imminent changes to sewage discharge regulations for recreational vessels operating in Queensland’s coastal waters and concerns about nutrients derived from sewage emissions fuelled demand for a study aimed at identifying sewage signatures from recreational and tourist vessels.

This report focuses on one component of a wider study of tourist-dolphin interaction and includes an Industry Manual, available as a separate hardcopy. The wider study consisted of a quantitative survey, with a sample of 1300 shore and boat-based visitors, and a population survey of 230 swim tour participants. It also included qualitative input from staff members at the Dolphin Discovery Centre, Koombana Bay, Bunbury, Western Australia, with regards to management issues. Included with this report will be an industry focused best practice manual concentrating specifically on the procedures of dolphin swim-tour operations.
