  • How do we keep them coming back? A look at individual factors impacting
           attendee satisfaction and intention to return to festivals
    • First page: 102
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyse the factors that influence the level of satisfaction or festival attendees and how that influences their intention to return. The impact of other factors such as past attendance and distance travelled to the festival were also examined. Design/methodology/approach The data for this study was collected using an online survey from attendees at a LaughtFest™, a comedy festival hosted as a fund and awareness- raiser for a non-profit organization (NPO) in a medium sized Midwestern city. The data related to reasons for level of satisfaction and intention to return were coded into dichotomous variables, and along with income, gender and distance travelled to the event were analyzed using logistic regression. Findings Of the factors that impacted satisfaction, performers, venue and ticket prices were found to have the largest impact on intention to return, with negative experiences having a greater impact than positive. Previous attendance was also significant with regard to intention to return. Practical implications This information will allow this festival's managers to target specific areas for improvement to increase the rate of repeat attendance. Originality/value This paper aims to contribute to the literature addressing specific factors influencing level of satisfaction and how those factors impact intention to return by examining then in a comedy festival that is also a fund and awareness raiser for a local NPO. There are few studies examining this aspect in regard to this particular type of festival.

  • Sport participation behaviours of spectators attending major sports events
           and event induced attitudinal changes towards sport
    • First page: 121
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose Evidence of the link between major sports events and increased participation at grassroots level is somewhat mixed. This paper examines attitudinal changes to sport participation among spectators associated with seven sports events held in Great Britain in 2014. Design/methodology/approach Primary data was gathered from 4,590 spectators aged 16 and over who attended one of the events. Both positive (inspiration) effects and negative (discouragement) effects were considered through the lens of the Transtheoretical Model (TTM). Findings The evidence from this research indicates that event audiences belong primarily to the latter (more active) stages of the TTM. It was also found that attending sports events can further fuel the existing desire of contemplators to increase participation, whereas the catalytic effect among pre-contemplators is arguably less potent. Virtually no discouragement effects were observed across the different TTM stages. Research limitations/implications The research stops short of measuring actual changes in sport participation post-event of individuals in the different TTM stages and any attribution of such behaviour changes to events. This is both a limitation of the current research and a natural direction for future research. Practical implications The main implications for promoting sport participation through the medium of sports events include attracting more people in the early stages of the TTM, greater collaboration between different event stakeholders and the building of sport participation strategies into the event planning phase. Originality/value Models of behaviour change such as the TTM have seldom been applied to document the current and/or planned sport participation behaviour of individuals in a sport event context or to examine attitudinal changes towards sport as a result of attending an event. An adapted version of the TTM has been proposed to overcome the limitations of the traditional model.

  • Athlete satisfaction with a major multi-sport event: the importance of
           social and cultural aspects
    • First page: 136
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose In a major multi-sport event, the athlete is both a benefactor and producer of organizational activities. Athletes’ centrality makes understanding their satisfaction with the event an important management activity. This research examined the lived athlete experience (during the event) so as to provide insight into the important Games facets contributing to their satisfaction. This study explored the controllable aspects of the event from an organizers’ perspective that athletes felt made the Games special and memorable. Design/methodology/approach A multi-dimensional instrument (i.e., Athlete Experience Questionnaire) was designed and tested at previous iterations of this same major multi-sport event and was employed during Games time. In total, 813 athletes completed the questionnaire during the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Findings Findings demonstrated an overall high level of satisfaction with the event. Several important facets contributed to athlete satisfaction including social, service and communication related aspects. Further, athletes reported on the importance of cultural opportunities within their Games experience. Research limitations/implications The paper denotes the importance of the social and cultural interactions and opportunities which lie outside the athlete’s actual competition experience and increase their specialness of the event. Theoretical and practical implications are drawn from the findings relative to the service dominant logic and service quality literatures within a major multi-sport event Games for the athlete stakeholder. Originality/value This paper explores how athletes experience the major international multi-sport event environment. Moreover, this paper offers a significant contribution from a hard-to-reach population (i.e., elite level international athletes) and adopts their perspective of the Games environment and what contributes to their satisfaction. As we highlight, the paper denotes the importance of the planned social and cultural interactions and opportunities, which lie outside the athlete’s actual competition event experience, to increase athlete satisfaction; in contrast, basic sport competition needs seem to be a ‘basic’ expectation.

  • Towards an adapted MHP strategic capabilities model for moderating
           challenges to quality music festival management
    • First page: 151
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The music festival industry is challenged by intense competition and financial exigency. As a result, many festivals have either folded or are currently struggling. The purpose of this paper therefore is to show that Motivator, Hygiene and Professional (MHP) strategic capabilities (SCs) are positively associated with quality music festival management thereby providing a playbook for potentially mitigating these challenges. Design/methodology/approach Our mixed-methods research design comprised a case study of a leading event management company as well as nation-wide in-depth interviews and questionnaire survey. We initially confirmed the nature of the challenges to the industry from the case study and the in-depth interviews. We then developed an MHP Model of fifteen SCs that were identified from the literature and our qualitative research. The relationship of the MHP SCs model to quality music festival management was tested in the questionnaire survey. Findings The respondents suggested that all the SCs were related to quality music festival management. However Professional SCs were considered comparatively less important than Motivator and Hygiene SCs. Across all three groups, interviewees highlighted the significance of artists, site and operational planning, financial and stakeholder management and ticket pricing. In addition, careful planning, delegation and quality focus, problem solving, resolve and flexibility, leadership and vision, communication and innovation were considered conducive to the quality management of music festival organisations Practical implications The MHP SCs model and dimensions of quality management offer music festival event managers a detailed practical playbook for moderating challenges to music festival management. In essence we provide the specific drivers that festival managers should best focus their attention upon. Visionary leadership, artist differentiation, innovation, customer service and flexible management have priority. Originality/value Our findings add to the festival management literature by demonstrating the importance of Motivator, Hygiene and additional Professional SCs for moderating challenges to the music festival industry. To the best of our knowledge, no previous studies have directly investigated specific SCs critical for quality event and festival management. In particular, the academic significance of our paper is that we have combined Herzberg’s motivator and hygiene factors with SCs, which are in essence success drivers, to create a novel holistic MHP SCs model for quality music festival management. Further explanatory insight is gained by the addition of a third factor of professional SCs.

  • Understanding hallmark event failure: a case study of a Swedish music
    • First page: 172
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose Hallmark events can be very beneficial for host communities, not least due to their potential in attracting tourists. The Peace & Love music festival was the hallmark event of the Swedish city Borlänge. In 2013, the event organization declared bankruptcy and canceled the forthcoming festival. The purpose of this study is to identify and discuss the factors that caused the failure of the 2013 Peace & Love festival. Design/methodology/approach The case of the Peace & Love festival is analyzed using three data sources: interviews with former members of the event organization; secondary data describing the Swedish festival industry; and festival visitors’ perspectives represented by comments on social media. An organizational ecology perspective frames the analysis. Findings The results of the study reveal that the failure of the event can be understood by a combination of three components: an organization in a vulnerable position, a strong new competitor entering the Swedish festival market, and uncertain visitors searching for the new place to be. Originality/value Very few studies have researched event failure, although the subject is a recommended priority within the field of festival studies. This study presents a thorough examination of a hallmark event failure, which contributes to this area of knowledge and provides relevant information for organizations and host cities.

  • Evaluating the brand image of a rock festival using positive critical
    • First page: 186
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose Since effective and successful branding increases the popularity and loyalty of the festival, and its economic success factors like positive media coverage and sponsors’ interest, it is essential that the festival brand image is credible and strong. The study focus on interpreting audience perceptions on a rock festival brand image to find out the factors that influence the brand image of the festival and how organisers could contribute to it. Design/methodology/approach Critical Incident Technique (CIT) was used in defining the factors influencing a rock festival brand. Findings The attending public co-produce the festival brand, and the brand image was created by the festival community where the importance of social and inclusive behaviour towards strangers was essential. Research limitations/implications The data was collected as a voluntary response sample which led to a biased sample. Another limitation is that the informants were asked to describe only positive incidents. Practical implications The festival brand image cannot be produced solely by organisers; rather, volunteers, artists and especially audience members are crucial for the success and creditability of the brand. This should be considered in marketing and event management. Originality/value The use of CIT in the festival brand image evaluation introduces new possibilities in the field.

  • Segmenting beyond behavioural intentions - fine tuning music festival
           visitors’ music appreciation
    • First page: 204
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The research determined whether a music festival leads to additional intangible benefits such as the appreciation of the specific music genre and music tourism. This was done by using visitors’ behavioural intentions related to these benefits as a tool for market segmentation. Design/methodology/approach The research followed a quantitative approach by conducting a visitor survey at an international jazz festival in South Africa. Findings The results showed that visitors’ post-festival behavioural intentions are a useful market segmentation tool. This approach revealed three distinct market segments with different levels of post-festival behavioural intentions (high, medium and low). The results further showed that music festivals have the potential to create benefits beyond the festival itself or the host destination in the form of music tourism and the appreciation of a music genre. However, influencing visitors’ behavioural intentions can only be achieved by a thorough understanding of the characteristics of the market. Originality/value This research applied an innovative market segmentation approach that showed the post-festival behavioural intentions of different visitor segments at a music festival. The findings confirm that music festivals can have far-reaching benefits that can contribute to their legacy.

  • From place branding to placemaking: the role of events
    • First page: 8
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose This paper examines developments in the use of events by places from a predominantly place branding role based on image and economic impacts towards a broader placemaking approach aimed at holistic improvements in place quality. Design/methodology/approach The research is based on a single case study approach, with the Dutch city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch) as the focus. Data sources include resident surveys, depth interviews and analysis of policy documents. Findings The Den Bosch case illustrates the emergence of a more holistic approach to the use of events as a placemaking tool. The city shifted from an ad hoc events policy to the development of a multi-annual programme designed to produce economic, image, social cultural and network effects. This approach seems to have been successful in stimulating visitation, increasing visitor spend and raising the international profile of the city. At the same time, the city has developed many activities designed to mobilise local stakeholder groups and increase social cohesion, which provide essential support for the necessary investment. Research limitations/implications There are indications that sustaining such a programme over the longer term is difficult in the face of political and economic change. Adoption of a holistic approach also requires the mobilisation of a wide range of stakeholders. Practical implications Critivcal success factors for placemaking are identified. Originality/value This study presents a placemaking model that can help to identify the different elements required in a successful placemaking programme. This is developed from a practice approach, which has the value of paying attention to how event programmes can be initiated and sustained by a group of actors.

  • Events and placemaking: the case of the Festival Internacional Cervantino
           in Guanajuato, Mexico
    • First page: 24
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose The research focuses on the Festival Internacional Cervantino, which represents one of the major cultural events in Latin America. Based on theoretical propositions regarding tourism as an experience, perception of visitors was studied focusing on emotional factors. Urban perception was also addressed, especially where public service failure affected the experience and therefore, the placemaking. Design/methodology/approach A mixed methodology was applied. First, the Event Experience Scale (EES) methodology for visitors’ perception was performed in order to collect data directly from tourists. The relationship between the festival and the visit to heritage resources and attractions was especially highlighted and analyzed. Urban field work focused on expressing the location of the most visited areas during festival days. Public services were also assessed where perception was affected negatively. Interviews were applied to public administration officials and public policy related documents were collected in order to understand the expectation of visitors, previous to the experience itself. Local perception was also contrasted with the rest of the data. Findings Attracted by information about the historic and colonial nature of the city, tourists gather massively in Guanajuato during the festival. This event in particular yields in some aspects to a transient placemaking, mainly related to inner perception and the event as such is highly appreciated. It was also found that the foreign figure of Cervantes was incorporated into the intangible heritage discourse of the city and linked to the event itself. However, some urban spaces and services need improvement to consolidate a positive experience of visitors who complain about specific factors such as traffic, accessibility, waste disposal and environmental noise. Originality/value The research has been useful to give another point of view to existing surveys and conclusions of the impact of the festival. The application of EES has yielded some improvements that could be made in further applications of the same methodology. Application of EES to assess the impact of events in urban spaces and services can be applied to many other cities that host festivals in their city centres.

  • Understanding the creation of destination images through a
           festival’s Twitter conversation
    • First page: 39
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose The analysis of the potential contribution of festivals in generating a destination image through social media (particularly Twitter) is addressed. Design/methodology/approach This study follows a multi-method approach by recollecting, analysing and mixing quantitative and qualitative techniques. We focus on the case of Vic (Spain), analysing the destination’s image as projected by different users (administration, private sector, particular users, residents) on Twitter in relation to an international musical festival, El Mercat de Música Viva de Vic (the Vic Live Music Market). Findings From a theoretical perspective, the study’s results advocate a reconsideration of the role of social media in the processes of creating a destination’s image. It is important to take into account the need to perform a specific analysis for each platform and consider how it operates and which stakeholders prevail by weight, by the clusters they pertain to and by their elicited descriptions. In the particular case of Twitter, the image-formation continuum generated by different actors through different sources is present here on one single platform. Research limitations/implications This study is limited in terms of being based on only one social media site, and it would be very interesting to complement it by analysing other relevant social media platforms. Practical implications From a practical point of view, this presents a challenge to destination managers to learn how to work on each specific platform in order to oversee the different destination visions and their resources Originality/value From our results, we affirm that destination-branding analyses now need a platform-specific approach as well as an in-depth stakeholder analysis, since it is no longer possible to separate producers and consumers in brand image creation. Branding is becoming a more inclusive and collaborative process.

  • The ‘old’ and the ‘new’: events and place making
           in Luang Prabang, Laos.
    • First page: 55
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose This paper explores Lai Heua Fai Festival of Light as a place making ritual in the World Heritage town of Luang Prabang, a former royal capital of the Lao-speaking kingdom. It compares this centuries-old traditional festival with a very new place-making festival, the Luang Prabang Film Festival which began only six years ago. Design/methodology/approach Sense of place theorization has developed considerably in recent decades as a number of discourses have co-mingled and as social and cultural research has embraced space/place as crucial a component of knowledge production. The study explores place making in a globalised, post-modern and post-colonial world. Fieldwork was undertaken in Luang Prabang between 2008 and 2016 including interviews, observations, photographic recording and participation, leading up to the 2013 celebration of Lai Heua Fai and the 2015 Film festival. Findings Lai Heua Fai and the Luang Prabang Film Festival are spatial practices that represent the places they evoke. Both these events connect the past, the present and the future in place. We argue that separating ‘events’ from ‘place’ sets up a dichotomy that is problematic and unsustainable on many levels: perceptually, as a lived experience, epistemologically and analytically. Originality/value We suggest that these two identity forming events, in the life of Luang Prabang, herald ‘place’ and ‘place making’ as ongoing dynamic processes of construction and re-construction where the ‘traditional’ and the ‘contemporary’ are constantly reconstituted as markers, in the case of this research, of Luang Prabangan identity and place attachment.

  • Reconnecting with place through events – collaborating with precinct
           managers in the placemaking agenda
    • First page: 66
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose Whilst academic research can capture an existing sense of place, the act of placemaking through strategies such as events depends upon the attitudes and actions of precinct managers and event organisations. This paper investigates the collaborative research process between researchers and a precinct manager that highlighted an event’s ability to contribute to placemaking within that precinct. Design/methodology/approach Using the results of this event experience study, informal interviews with the SPA research partners, secondary data and a longitudinal, reflective account of the research collaboration, the research process itself was investigated to see how it assisted in the (re)design of the event within the precinct manager’s placemaking strategy to encourage a family-friendly, beach-centred culture within the precinct. Findings It is proposed that the research results combined with a collaborative research process itself facilitated a shift from the business imperative on the event’s economic performance indicators to a broader discussion of the event’s role in shaping local’s (and visitor’s) perceptions of place, and allowed a broader discussion of the role of events in driving a “liveability” and/or placemaking agenda, complementing the economic impact agenda, for the precinct manager. Practical implications The paper suggests how and why it is important for academics to work collaboratively with precinct managers to translate the concept of placemaking into the actual design of events within a place. To do so requires the researchers to bridge the gap between theory and practice. For the concept to be translated into action, greater attention was drawn to the placemaking role of events, positioning it along economic impact measures as a valuable outcome of events. Originality/value Few co-authored studies, representing both researchers and practitioners exist within the events sector, and this study contributes towards understanding process of research impact, by considering the forces capable of delivering a placemaking agenda through a precinct’s event portfolio.

  • Creating an eventful rural place: Akaroa’s French festival
    • First page: 84
      Abstract: International Journal of Event and Festival Management, Volume 8, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose Recent theorising about the globalising countryside highlights the processes of place-making, sense of place and the construction of place-based identities in rural regions, where exogenous forces are utilised, negotiated and contested by local communities as the seek to represent their place. A longitudinal case study of Akaroa’s French Festival shows how this place based identity has been constructed, promoted and animated over the past two decades at the nexus of globalising and local forces. Design/methodology/approach The research is based on qualitative methods utilising documentary analysis, participant observation and key stakeholder interviews undertaken in the township of Akaroa, New Zealand. Findings The form this festival has taken, and the version of place identity represented therein, has shifted over the course of the last two decades. While this is in part due to the energy, personal heritage and agenda of local champions, the influence of globalising forces, political, economic and cultural, have shaped the place image portrayed through this festival. Originality/value There are limited attempts to theorise rural festivals within a ‘global countryside’ framework, and the detailed longitudinal research underpinning this paper provides a unique opportunity to explore the emergent issues in a rural community festival in qualitative detail. The study reinforces the understanding of the role of local agency in the making of places in a globalizing world.
