Events, and therefore event tourism, tend to be attached to their host communities, even embedded within close and strong stakeholder networks. It is true there are many footloose events, won through bidding, or otherwise moving around the world, but a degree of dependence on place and social networks is the norm. This raises two concepts of importance: place identity and place attachment. This chapter will focus on the aspects that are important for the residents during stakeholder engagement. It will also look at the needs of the community and apply the stakeholder theory to the city and destination.
