A framework for assessing direct economic impacts of tourist events: distinguishing origins, destinations, and causes of expenditures

A framework for assessing direct economic impacts of tourist events: distinguishing origins, destinations, and causes of expenditures

This article outlines a standardized method for assessing direct economic expenditures and impacts associated with tourist events. The method addresses critical and often overlooked methodological issues that distinguish analysis of impacts from tourism in general and analysis of impacts from tourist events. These issues involve a common failure to account for sources, origins, destinations, and causes of expenditures.
