Author: Amorin, Aricka; Tarlow, Peter; Gandara, Jose; Korstanje, Maximiliano
Abstract: We live in dangerous and risky times. The travel, tourism and event-management industries are higlt are very much a part of this the times in which we are living. From the perspective of tourism and event management professionals, a primary concerns for policy makers, whose countries depend on international tourism, needs to be their visitors’ security. In the modern world, globalization and mass-media make the world’s public instantaneously aware of news items that in former years would have taken months to learn. Modern technology has given us better communication along with new challenges and risks. This means that we live in a risk-aware society in which these risks often are transformed into questions of economic gain or loss, not only for the industry but also for the locale’s citizens. Event and festival management creates a two edge sword. On one side these industries can be an important income generator, but at the same time they engender unexpected risks.
