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.

All tourism destinations might be expected to experience damage from an extreme natural event (ENE) at some point in time. ENEs are predicted to increase in both frequency and intensity along the east coast of Australia as global climate change continues. Even if the scenarios of climate change do not eventuate as we think, ENEs are a feature of the environment, and much can be gained from reviewing what we have experienced and how we have coped.
