  1. 1. Temporary Tourism Businesses- Events, Conferences, Conventions, Meeting, Symposium, Consortium & Exhibitions, Fairs and Festivals.
  2. 2. Events Occurrence happening at a determinable time and place, with or without the participation of human agents. It may be a part of a chain of occurrences as an effect of a preceding occurrence and as the cause of a succeeding occurrence. Marriages, Sports And Games, House Warming etc. are examples of events.
  3. 3. Conferences A conference is generally understood as a meeting of several people to discuss a particular topic. It is often confused with a convention, colloquia or symposium. While a conference differs from the others in terms of size and purpose, the term can be used to cover the general concept. A convention is larger than a conference; it is a gathering of delegates representing several groups.
  4. 4. At a conference, innovative ideas are thrown about and new information is exchanged among experts. Its purpose could be one of the following:  An academic conference is a gathering of scientists or academicians, where research findings are presented or a workshop is conducted.  A business conference is held for people working in the same company or industry. They come together to discuss new trends and opportunities pertaining to the business  A trade conference takes place on a larger scale. Besides businessmen, there are members of the public who come to network with vendors and made new connections. Such a conference consists of workshops and white paper presentations.  An unconference differs from the traditional conference, since it avoids the high costs, top-down organizational hierarchy and sponsored presentations. All attendees are equally knowledgeable about the topic and the discussion follows an open mode; usually without a single speaker addressing the gathering.
  5. 5. Most conferences have one or more keynote speakers who will deliver the keynote speech. These are common at academic and business conferences. The speakers chosen are eminent personalities in the related field and their presence is meant to attract more people to attend the conference. There are various types of conferences:  A Symposium is a casual gathering and includes refreshments and entertainment.  A Seminar is organized to discuss a particular topic. They are usually educational in nature and attendees are expected to gain new knowledge or skills at the end of the seminar  A Workshop is more of a hands-on experience for the participants with demonstrations and activities; the amount of time one speaker addresses the group is limited  A Round-table conference is a get-together of peers to exchange thoughts and opinions on a certain topic, usually political or commercial. There are a limited number of participants who sit at a round table, so that each one can face all the others.
  6. 6. CONVENTIONS A convention, in the sense of a meeting, is a gathering of individuals who meet at an arranged place and time in order to discuss or engage in some common interest. The most common conventions are based upon industry, profession, and fandom. Trade conventions typically focus on a particular industry or industry segment, and feature keynote speakers, vendor displays, and other information and activities of interest to the event organizers and attendees. Professional conventions focus on issues of concern along with advancements related to the profession. Such conventions are generally organized by societies or communities dedicated to promotion of the topic of interest. Fan conventions usually feature displays, shows, and sales based on pop culture and guest celebrities. Science fiction conventions traditionally partake of the nature of both professional conventions and fan conventions, with the balance varying from one to another. Conventions also exist for various hobbies, such as gaming or model railroads.
  7. 7. Meetings  Meeting –Brings people together for the purpose of exchanging information  It can be an event booked at a hotel, convention center or any other venue dedicated to such gatherings.  Meeting covers the following: 1. Lecture (one presentation), 2. Seminar (typically several presentations, small audience, one day), 3. Conference (mid-size, one or more days), 4. Congress (large, several days), 5. Exhibition or trade show (with manned stands being visited by passers-by), 6. Workshop (smaller, with active participants), training course, team-building session and kick-off event.
  8. 8. Types Of Meetings  Clinic- workshop type educational experience in which attendees learn by doing. (small groups interacting with each other)  Forum – an assembly for the discussion of common concerns. Usually, experts in a given field take the opposite sides of an issue in a panel discussion.  Seminar – a lecture and a dialogue that allow participants to share experiences in a particular field. A seminar is guided by an expert discussion leader, usually 30 or fewer persons participates.  Symposium - a meeting or conference for the discussion of some subject, especially a meeting at which several speakers talk on or discuss a topic before an audience.  A collection of opinions expressed or articles contributed by several persons on a given subject or topic.  Workshop – meetings emphasizing interaction and exchange of information among a usually small number of participants.
  9. 9. Symposium A Symposium is a formal gathering in an academic setting where participants are experts in their fields. These experts present or deliver their opinions or viewpoints on a chosen topic of discussion. It would be correct to label a symposium as a small scale conference as the number of delegates is smaller. There are the usual discussions on the chosen topic after the experts have presented their speeches. The chief characteristic of a symposium is that it covers a single topic or subject and all the lectures given by experts are completed in a single day.
  10. 10. Consortium A consortium is an association of two or more individuals, companies, organizations or governments (or any combination of these entities) with the objective of participating in a common activity or pooling their resources for achieving a common goal.
  11. 11. Examples Of Consortium  Educational The Big Ten Academic Alliance and Five Colleges, Inc., along with the Claremont Consortium are among the oldest and most successful higher education consortia in the United States. The Big Ten Academic Alliance, formerly known as the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, includes the members of the Big Ten athletic conference. The participants in Five Colleges, Inc. are: Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. This consortia have pooled the resources of their member colleges and the universities to share human and material assets as well as to link academic and administrative resources.
  12. 12.  Commercial An example of a for-profit consortium is a group of banks that collaborate to make a loan—also known as a syndicate. This type of loan is more commonly known as a syndicated loan. In England it is common for a consortium to buy out financially struggling football clubs in order to keep them out of liquidation.  Aerospace Airbus Industries was formed in 1970 as a consortium of aerospace manufacturers. The retention of production and engineering assets by the partner companies in effect made Airbus Industries a sales and marketing company.  Coopetition Coopetition is a word coined from cooperation and competition. It is used when companies otherwise competitors collaborate in a consortium to cooperate on areas non-strategic for their core businesses. They prefer to reduce their costs on these non-strategic areas and compete on other areas where they can differentiate better.
  13. 13. Exhibitions An exhibition, in the most general sense, is an organized presentation and display of a selection of items. In practice, exhibitions usually occur within a cultural or educational setting such as a museum, art gallery, park, library, exhibition hall, or World's fairs. Exhibitions can include many things such as art in both major museums and smaller galleries, interpretive exhibitions, natural history museums and history museums, and also varieties such as more commercially focused exhibitions and trade fairs.
  14. 14. Fairs And Festivals  Fairs A fair is a gathering of vendors or tradespeople for entertainment, commerce and other purposes. There are job fairs (hardly a festival), book fairs, farm shows (also called fairs) where people show their prized livestock or farm products for the entertainment (and often sales for charity) of both fellow farmers and non-farmers alike, county fairs (mostly just summer entertainment), etc.  Festivals A festival is a gathering of people to celebrate something, historically religious holidays (feast days), but now also secular ones, e.g. Diwali, the festival of lights, Holi, the festival of colors etc. La Tomatina is a famous Spanish festival.
