Business Event Legacies: Global industry case studies provides a cutting edge understanding of the legacy in the field of business events, crucial to the future of the industry. Through eight case studies, this book explores how business events are a collision space for ideas, brokering new innovations, generating trade and investment, supporting local communities, academics, industry, and government agendas, and driving knowledge economies.

Business Event Legacies: Global industry case studies provides:

  • A comprehensive range of documented business event legacies available
  • A global range of case studies representing key business events destinations including London, Sydney, Uruguay, Copenhagen, Geneva, Kuching: Malaysia, and Jonkoping: Sweden.
  • Methodologies for evaluating the legacies and impacts of business events for communities, industries, and government.
  • Information/understandings crucial for educating future business event professionals
  • Suggestions for advances in business events education and a future research agenda.

Based on robust research framed by the authors’ deep understanding of business events, Business Event Legacies: Global industry case studies is a must have text for undergraduate and postgraduate students engaged in the business events sector, academic researchers and practitioners, including executive and marketing staff of convention bureaux and convention centres, as well as professional conference organisers and destination managers.
