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.

The report develops tools for measuring and enhancing the yield from tourism at the business, regional and national level. It clarifies the different concepts of tourism yield. Different stakeholders (operators, governments, community, researchers etc.) mean different things by ‘yield’ and this presents a barrier to communication and policy discussion.

The primary aim of the report is to develop tools for measuring and enhancing the yield from tourism at the business, regional and national levels. This overall objective subsumes several more specific objectives: First, to clarify the different concepts of tourism yield. Second, to develop operational measures of yield at the level of the firm and at destination, regional, state and national levels. The final objective involves discussion and analysis of the policy implications of the study.
