Event impact

Armbrecht, John, editor; Andersson, Tommy D., 1947- editor

Events are increasingly used instrumentally to achieve goals of the entire society such as cultural development, destination branding or economic development. Event impacts are, however, routinely measured from a purely economic perspective. This book fills an important niche and a void in the literature on events by taking a holistic approach, incorporating issues like value creation, experiential value, value measurement, sustainability and impact assessment
