Abstract

Enormous numbers of different type of events are taking place all around the world, impacting the environment and consuming a wider range of resources. For most businesses and organisations, the impact their activities have on the environment and sustainability is becoming a key factor input when planning and organizing events of all kinds. Festivals and events, in general, are important components of the tour- ism industry. With worldwide growth of festivals and events and global tourism set to reach 1.6 billion arrivals by in the near future, it is important to develop planning tools to facilitate the roll out of sustainably man- aged events. Festivals and events create significant impacts both positive and negative on the environment, society, and the economy. Therefore, sustainable event management is gaining attraction and is, in many cases, demanded as it provides an opportunity to manage these impacts while improving the quality of events.
