AbstractThe chapter is divided into two parts. In the first part, several contemporary marketing concepts that can be effectively applied to events are introduced. The chapter reviews how a creative approach can be helpful in the application of existing frameworks and models. The effects that the ambition and value of an event have on its marketing are discussed, along with how understanding the “core” audience can be useful in delivering a memorable experience for the event audience. The second part of the chapter explores the ways event marketers can communicate effectively with the audience using digital marketing across various online platforms.

Market consolidation, market growth, or new market development? Owner, firm, and competitive determinantsWeixi, Liu; Wei, Yue; Hang, Do; Cowling, M; University of Brighton; Bath Management School; Kingston Business School (Seante Hall Academic Publishing, 2019-03-31)Market entry decisions are complex and involve high sunk costs with uncertain or risky outcomes. In this study we explore how owner, firm, and competitive pressures shape this decision. Using a large UK data set of SMEs, we find that the preferred form of growth, and growth is not always desired, is expansion in existing markets. Key determinants of the decision to pursue a new market entry strategy are formal education, and large firm based market competition. Further, these decisions are made simultaneously not sequentially.
Information provision for challenging markets: the case of the accessibility requiring market in the context of tourismMichopoulou, Eleni; Buhalis, Dimitrios; University of Derby (Elsevier, 2013-07)The paper investigates the requirements of users with disabilities and the implications that these tourists have for developing accessible tourism information systems. A series of focus groups and interviews revealed the informational needs of people with disabilities, as well as the relevant technical difficulties involved in addressing these needs. The results indicated that the indispensable requirements include the following: (1) the veto or absolutely minimal prerequisites principle; (2) an indication of holistic accessibility paths; and (3) door-to-door access maps. The technical challenges identified focus on interoperability, content integration and personalization. The paper concludes by demonstrating how the tourism industry can overcome these challenges and address disabled travelers’ needs.
