Going far beyond being just a mega sport event, the Olympic Games are, and have been in the past, important settings for tourism and cultural change. Hosting the Olympic Games presents a unique opportunity for countries to promote, regenerate, and develop cities and regions, and to firmly locate them within an increasingly competitive global tourism marketplace. From Athens to Rio de Janeiro, Olympic landmark buildings, ‘districts’, and ‘parks’ have permanently transformed cities and regions, and gained tremendous material and symbolic value as tourist attractions. On another level, the Olympic Games produce a kaleidoscopic range of intangible and quasi-religious engagements with place and spectacle. They have a tremendous impact on the image of the host country, while invoking collective memories and touching on emotions such as suspense, compassion, togetherness, and pride. Tourism has also become a major watchword in ongoing debates on the ‘legacy’ of the Olympic Games, and it deeply penetrates discourses on social justice and cultural change on a local, national and global scale. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Tourism, grade: 1,3, Stralsund University of Applied Sciences, 33 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Die Planung, Organisation und Beschaffung von Reisepaketen zu Olympischen Spiele stellen enorme Herausforderungen an einen Reiseveranstalter und unterliegen einer Vielzahl von Einflussfaktoren. Diese ergeben sich zum einen aus den Forderungen, die von den Organisatoren der Olympischen Spiele ausgehen, zum anderen aus den Charakteristika der Ausrichterstadt sowie seinem politischen, wirtschaftlichen und soziokulturellen Umfeld. Die Thesis analysiert die wichtigsten Einflussfaktoren, die sich auf die Produktentwicklung einer Reise zu den Olympischen Spielen auswirken. Während einige dieser Faktoren sich bei allen Olympischen Spielen ähnlich darstellen, verändern sich andere maßgeblich mit dem wechselnden Austragungsort und stellen völlig neue Anforderungen an den Reiseveranstalter. Der erste Teil der Thesis untersucht, wie sich die Einflussfaktoren generell auf die Produktentwicklung von Eintrittskarten, Unterkunft, Transport und Sightseeing auswirken. Zudem werden die Charakteristika des olympischen Reiseveranstaltermarktes in Europa und die verschiedenen Arten von Olympiatouristen analysiert. Diese Erkenntnisse werden im zweiten Teil auf das Beispiel der Olympischen Sommerspiele 2008 in Peking angewendet. Diese sind nicht nur für China eine Herausforderung, der gesamten Welt zu zeigen, dass sich das Land zu einer leistungsfähigen Nation entwickelt hat, sondern auch für europäische Reiseveranstalter, die ihre Arbeit und Vorgehensweise an die chinesischen Marktbedingungen anpassen müssen. Aufgrund der bedeutenden Unterschiede zwischen dem chinesischen und europäischen Wirtschafts- und Politiksystem sowie zwischen deren Kulturen und Werten wird angenommen, dass die touristische Produktentwicklung für die Olympischen Spiele 2008 in Peking sehr spezielle und besonders herausfordernde Anforderungen an einen europäischen Reiseveranstalter stellt. Mit Hilfe der Ergebnisse aus einer Umfrage unter allen offiziellen Olympiareiseveranstaltern im Europäischen Wirtschaftsraum sowie Interviews mit dem Organisationskomitee (BOCOG) in Peking wird aufgezeigt, wie die Reiseveranstalter auf die Besonderheiten, Herausforderungen und Schwierigkeiten, die während des Prozesses der Produktentwicklung in Peking entstehen, reagieren und welche Lösungen sie finden, um schließlich ein erfolgreiches Produkt zu entwickeln. Die Thesis gibt einen Einblick in die Besonderheiten der chinesischen Tourismusindustrie und präsentiert die aktuelle Hotelmarktsituation in Peking.

"This book arises from the need to analyse, in detail, the various economic aspects that the Olympic Games mean for host cities. Since 1984 increasingly more cities in the world have announced their interest in staging the Olympic Games, making it a festival with significant economic dimensions. What followed have been economic triumphs and tragedies, glories and fiascos - all are included in the 36 years of Olympic history reviewed in this book." - foreword.

The first edition of Olympic Cities, published in 2007, provided a pioneering overview of the changing relationship between cities and the modern Olympic Games. This substantially revised and enlarged third edition builds on the success of its predecessors. The first of its three parts provides overviews of the urban legacy of the four component Olympic festivals: the Summer Games; Winter Games; Cultural Olympiads; and the Paralympics. The second part comprisessystematic surveys of seven key aspects of activity involved in staging the Olympics: finance; place promotion; the creation of Olympic Villages; security; urban regeneration; tourism; and transport. The final part consists of nine chronologically arranged portraits of host cities, from 1936 to 2020, with particular emphasis on the six Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games of the twenty-first century. As controversy over the growing size and expense of the Olympics, with associated issues of accountability and legacy, continues unabated, this book’s incisive and timely assessment of the Games’ development and the complex agendas that host cities attach to the event will be essential reading for a wide audience. This will include not just urban and sports historians, urban geographers, event managers and planners, but also anyone with an interest in the staging of mega-events and concerned with building a better understanding of the relationship between cities, sport and culture.

This book comprehensively describes, explains, critiques and refines our current perspectives of event leveraging and, in so doing, provides an analytic account of the subject area as a whole, as it concerns the strategic pursuit of attaining and magnifying benefits that derive from events. Encompassing all events including sport, cultural and business, it also covers all kinds of benefits that can be leveraged and lead to sustainability through triple-bottom-line assessment. The book takes an interdisciplinary approach to cross boundaries and creates linkages among the parent disciplines (sport management; events, hospitality and tourism; leisure studies, parks and recreation) and general disciplines (management, marketing, sociology, anthropology, urban and regional planning). Building a truly global and transdisciplinary framework, the author provides direction and possibilities that can lead to new forms of leveraging, making this an excellent resource for researchers, practitioners and students interested in event management and policy, sport management, recreation and leisure, and hospitality, tourism and festival management.
