4 Differences Between Business Events and Leisure Tourism Destinations that are successful in Business Events understand the synergies of leisure tourism and Business Events, as well as the strong differences, especially in market approach. Business Events differs from leisure tourism in terms of the purpose of the visit, decision makers, service providers, and requires a distinct strategy for attracting business meetings. How do Business Events and Leisure Tourism Differ? Purpose of Visit Main Drivers Decision Makers Expenditure Service Providers Marketing Approach Leisure Tourism Fun and leisure Exploring new destination and learning new cultures Affordability Uniqueness of destination and culture Kind of leisure activities available Individual tourists Tour wholesalers Travel agents Personal expenditure, on leisure activity, shopping etc. Tour operators/travel agents Hotels Airlines Broadcast marketing to end consumers (tourists) Tour packages through tour operators/travel agents Business Events Business networking and information sharing Education & certification Business networking State of domestic economy Quality of Business Events-related infrastructure, such as convention/ meeting venues and hotels Affordability and connectivity Meeting Planners/AMCs Professional Congress/Exhibition Organisers Associations and corporates Business and personal expenditure, amounting to 2-3 times that of a leisure visitor PCOs/DMCs/EMCs Venue Providers (meeting venues and exhibition grounds) Convention centres Bidding for international conventions/ exhibitions Lobbying with government and trade bodies Direct selling to corporates and associations Source: GainingEdge research analysis

5 Convention Bureau Business Events and Economic Transformation Business Events (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions & Exhibitions) align interests of several stakeholders such as the government, professional community, DMOs, and the supporting hospitality industry, and hence is viewed as part of a comprehensive government strategy for economic transformation and growth in priority sectors. Business Events as Strategic Levers to Build Priority Sectors Government Governments have priority sectors for development that conventions can help strengthen, by bringing global industry leaders to engage with local professional communities Convention Bureaus play a crucial role in securing conventions for a destination and should be encouraged to identify and win bids for business events associated with the identified priority economic sectors Government Medicine Science Education Economic Sectors Trade Cultural Professions Business events bring together industry and thought leaders, helping foster business and research links that drive faster growth of industries, which in turn supports greater overall economic development Professional Community The hospitality industry is an enabler for broader economic transformation through business events. The growth of this industry should be viewed as an additional benefit rather than the primary goal of growing business event activity Hospitality Industry Source: GainingEdge research analysis

6 Business Events and Economic Transformation Governments are investing in development of the Business Events industry, as hosting conventions and exhibitions is a powerful global economic and intellectual engagement strategy, making it a critical component of their broader economic transformation strategy. Understanding the Overall Economic Impact of Business Events Business Events Microeconomic Impact Direct Spending Employment Tax Revenues Macroeconomic Impact Tourism (Leisure) Focus Attracts the world s industry and thought leaders Exports Stimulates international markets for locally produced goods and services Platform Showcases innovation, products and expertise Networks Builds business contacts, trade and research links Profile Generates favorable media attention Access Delivers access to new technologies and exchange of ideas Investment Provides a world stage if they see it, they will invest.
