Abstract [en]

This chapter gives an introduction to The Value of Events and sets the stage for subsequent contributions by providing an overview of the most fundamental concepts. It starts with definitions that can be found in most dictionaries, including examples of how terms are used in the context of events. This is followed by a general discussion of extrinsic versus intrinsic approaches to assigning value, drawing on economics and other disciplinary perspectives. The chapter presents planned events and a model for exploring extrinsic and intrinsic values. While understanding and describing value of one particular event is desirable, an even more urgent and complicated issue is to understand the value of portfolios of events that are important within many policy fields and industry strategies, and whole populations of events within cities and countries. Discourse on the value of events, or the worthwhileness of public support, is common around the world.

Abstract [en]

In this conceptual paper, we draw upon organizational ecology theory to develop a rationale, measures and methods for analyzing whole populations of festivals and events. We employ literature review and the extension of existing theory to event studies. There is considerable scope for gaining better understanding of festivals (and other permanent or periodic events) and their management through application of measures of population dynamics and a number of key constructs from organizational ecology. We conclude by suggesting a research strategy and outlining specific measures and methods that should be applied to whole-population analysis. Policy implications are discussed for cities, destinations, and organizations that are involved with multiple events, including the necessity for inter-organizational collaboration in research, defining shared goals, and measuring impacts.

Abstract [en]

Involvement is a much theorized construct in the consumer behavior literature, yet extant food involvement scales have not been developed for leisure- or tourism-based contexts. Adopting a phenomenological approach, this article reports a study with two primary aims: to develop a customized food involvement scale and to administer the instrument to a sample of self-declared food enthusiasts with analysis focusing on identifying the underlying constructs of food involvement. An exploratory factor analysis finds four dimensions of food involvement: Food-Related Identity, Food Quality, Social Bonding, and Food Consciousness. The four dimensions are validated by discriminant analysis between the food enthusiast sample and a general population sample and logistic regression reveals that identity is the most powerful predictor of being a food enthusiast. We demonstrate the utility of the four factors by operationalizing them as variables in tests of difference vis-a-vis demographic variables and conclude the study by summarizing the theoretical and tourism destination implications. This research addresses a need for theory-driven knowledge to inform the burgeoning special interest tourism of food tourism.
