The MICE Sector and Responsible Meetings and Events

In the first part of this two part series, we introduced you to the size and economic importance of the Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Events (MICE) sector in the Asia Pacific region. In that blog entry we looked at its direct and indirect economic contribution to host countries and the need to balance economic contributions with social and environmental considerations.

Three aspects of this industry will be discussed in this first blog: 1) The economic significance and reach of the sector; 2) Why we need to take action to ensure that economic benefits are balanced with social and environmental outcomes; and 3) What operational systems need to be in place to deliver sustainable meetings and events.

Categories: Attractions, Case Study, Community, Oceania, Pacific, People and Places, Private Sector, Visitors
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.

Comments Off on Encore Festival and Event Evaluation Kit: Review and Redevelopment

This publication reports on the first stage of a two stage project to review and redesign the STCRC ENCORE Festival and Event Evaluation Kit (ENCORE). The purpose of this project was to provide a critique of the current ENCORE product and make recommendations to guide the STCRC in future design and development of a revised model.  The second stage of the project was to involve the design and development of a revised ENCORE product, based on the results of the Stage 1 research. This second stage would also see the transfer of this revised ENCORE product to an online, web-based platform. While this second stage of the research has not progressed, the results of the ENCORE review (Stage 1 research) are presented in this report.

Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models are now extensively used to estimate impacts of changes and policies across sectors, including tourism. CGE modelling has been used to simulate the economic impacts of an increase in international, interstate and intrastate tourism to New South Wales and on the rest of Australia.

This is the second edition of the State of the Tourism Industry report and, like the first, the aim is to provide an overview of the tourism industry in Australia through the reporting of key indicators augmented by expert commentary provided by a range of representatives from the various sectors which contribute to tourism. The report was produced in partnership with the National Tourism Alliance (NTA). This year, for the first time, a survey of operators was also undertaken with the assistance of the NTA  who distributed the online questionnaire through their member organisations. The survey asked operators to rate the issues that had been identified in the previous year’s report in terms of the impact each was having on their sector and region.
