Vol 10 nº2, Special Issue. 25-35
Even if events can represent important drivers for local development, it is possible to have a genuine economic and social contribution only when the event is undertaken within a paradigm that emphasizes the importance of complex interactions between the event's proposer and its stakeholders. Inside the event sector, festivals represent a specific sub-field that share time similarities and peculiarities as compared to other typologies. This paper analyses the Italian context of music festivals and deepens the relationships between the festival organizer and public and private actors using stakeholder management approach. Findings suggest that Italian festivals have a reasonable level of entrepreneurship since the analysis reveals a good predisposition for the use of management practices.

Tourism, Festivals and Cultural Events in Times of Crisis

LYCK, L.,
LONG, P.,
GRIGE, A.X. (eds)
Copenhagen Business School Publications
The document is divided in four big parts. In the section of the book, the general nature of economic crisis is discussed, and a general framework for understanding and reaching different types of consumers in times of recession is offered. Concrete examples in Spain and Hawaii are reviewed regarding the strategies of local engagement of historical reenactment festivals and participatory marathon sports events in order to attract tourists in an effort to counteract the recession and positively infuse the local economies. The second section is centered in the analysis of the nature of the motivation of visitors to attend events and samples of the relationship between the destination image and the visitor's prior perception of an event and a destination relative to the perceived event quality and the experience of satisfaction. The importance of artistic expression and the preservation of cultural heritage are the main themes of the third section: street theatre in a historical perspective, arousal of conflicts between political forces and local residents when different strategies are being pursued and when there's a lack of communication or when the meaning of authenticity is different to each of the stakeholders. Last but not least, the final section of the book covers the efforts in Croatia and Finland to strategically position their events to brand cities and generate tourism; as well as discussing the transformation of the Olympics from a "festival of humanity" into a mega-event aimed at offering the host city a temporary spotlight on the world arena.

Edinburgh Festivals Impact Study

BOP Consulting
The study presents the aggregate findings of the impact assessment study for all Edinburgh Festivals and it builds on the Impact Study conducted in 2004/05 by SQW which also identified that Edinburgh's Festivals have an impact that goes beyond their economic effects. While the assessment of economic impact remains a key concern, there was a shared recognition among the Festivals and the stakeholders that it is important to present a more rounded argument about the value of the Festivals. The study sets out to take a 360 degree approach to assess impact that considers social, cultural, environmental and media aspects in addition to the economic effects, thus enabling the Festivals to demonstrate their wider value across Scotland. The study has two main objectives: to produce an updated impact study that looks at economic, social, cultural, media and environmental impacts and that allows a comparison with the earlier version of 2004/05; and to develop a method of ongoing assessment that is owned by the Festivals themselves in the form of a new impact assessment framework and data collection process.

Event stakeholder management: developing sustainable rural event practices.

REID, S.
International Journal of Event and Festival Management. 2(1) 20-36
2(1) 20-36
Purpose – Changes to the economic and social fabric of rural communities in Australia have resulted in an outmigration of residents, shifting economies and disenfranchisement with rural life styles. As a result, events provide important social and recreational opportunities for residents. However, rural communities are constrained by limited resources, such as the number of individuals who are willing and able to participate in event organizations; therefore, it is essential for the sustainable organization of events that stakeholders are attracted and retained. This paper aims to apply a stakeholder theoretical approach to the organizing and planning of rural events to identify event stakeholders, monitor satisfaction and ensure stakeholder retention within rural events. Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative research design using a multiple case study approach examined event stakeholders in three rural communities of Southwest Queensland, Australia. In total, 54 in-depth interviews were undertaken with event stakeholders and analyzed using an iterative thematic content analysis. Findings – The findings reveal that rural-event stakeholders fulfill multiple roles, differentiated by risk, and fraught with competing or conflicting agendas. The paper identifies strategies that event organizers utilize to manage relationships, and that facilitate stakeholder satisfaction and continued involvement. Originality/value – There is limited understanding of event stakeholders, particularly in rural communities. Involving rural residents in organizing and planning events develops individual skills, knowledge and capacity. Rural communities benefit from an ability to deal with adverse conditions based on improvements in capacity of individuals and the community.

Festivals and the cultural public sphere

DELANTY, G.,
GIORGI, L.,
SASSATELLI, M. (Eds.)
Routledge
The book provides the first major social-scientific study of contemporary arts festivals in the wake of their explosion in popularity over the past decade. It explores the cultural significance of these festivals from their location within the cultural public sphere, examining them as sites for contestation and democratic debate and also identifying them as examples of a particular aesthetic cosmopolitanism. The book approaches contemporary festivals as relatively autonomous social texts that need interpretation and contextualization. This perspective, combined with a diversified set of theoretical approaches and research methods, and guided by a common thematic rationale, places the volume squarely within some of the most debated topics in current social sciences. Furthermore, the multifaceted nature of festivals allows for unusual but useful connections to be made across several fields of social inquiry. This timely edited collection brings together contributions from key figures across the social sciences, and proves to be valuable reading for undergraduate students, postgraduates and professionals working within the areas of contemporary social theory, cultural theory and visual culture.

Strategic SWOT analysis of public, private and non-for-profit festival organisation.

ANDERSSON, T.,
CARLSEN, J.
International Journal of Event and Festival Management, 2(1): 83-97
The purpose of this analysis is to relate to the strategic orientation of public, private and not-for-profit festivals and the adoption of stakeholder, financial, marketing and management strategies that enable them to achieve their organizational objectives. The paper aims to address these issues. In order to test the effectiveness of this new strategic SWOT approach, data from the four-country study of festivals were employed to investigate how a strategic approach can be adopted by festival managers in the public, private and not-for-profit sector. The strategic issues that confront all festivals, including, financial management and related issues of costs, revenue, sponsorship and support are the subject of analysis. The findings indicate that among festival managers there are some interesting and significant differences between the three ownership types in terms of their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Private and non-profit festivals are comparatively more strategic in responding to financial opportunities, threats and weaknesses and public festivals are more dependent on a single stakeholder and source of revenue. Other significant differences exist in terms of stakeholder management and sponsorship strategies, which can be explained with reference to resource dependency theory. This paper demonstrates that it has some utility in identifying strategies in response to financial, stakeholder and sponsorship imperatives. It also provides new insights into the strategic management of public, private and not-for-profit festival organizations using an original approach and an extensive four-country dataset.

A comparison of results of three statistical methods to understand the determinants of festival participants' expenditures.

SEONGSEOP, S.
International Journal of Hospitality Management. Vol 29 (2) 297-307
Vol 29 (2) 297-307
The aim of the research reported upon in this study is to examine the impact of visitors’ socio-demographic and festival experience-related variables on expenditure levels and patterns of visits to festivals. Three statistical models including logit, OLS (ordinary least square) and Tobit models are employed to identify and examine the differences or similarities in results from three different approaches. A comparison of the three approaches using cross-section survey data generated differences in model fit. In addition, it was found that the set of independent variables which were significant in estimating festival visitors’ expenditures varied between the three models. As such the findings of this study suggest a singular statistical approach may be inferior to multiple ones in gaining a full understanding of the determinants of festival participants’ expenditure.
