Abstract

Legacies have become a key rationale underpinning the bidding process for hosting mega-events. These long-term effects are deemed to hold benefits and costs, and measurement is important. However, there is limited theory or empirical evidence on legacy impacts. In this article, the literature on legacies of mega-events is reviewed and event tourism isolated to develop an interdisciplinary conceptual model to measure tourism legacies, and develop propositions on measurement issues. This paper develops a framework of key indicators, propositions and measures to evaluate socio-economic legacies, which will support event organizers and decision makers to formulate policies for improving event legacies.
