The biggest event challenges of 2018

Festivals and events are important in attracting new and diverse visitors to destinations and in encouraging visitors to travel in off-peak seasons. Tourism outcomes are intrinsically linked to event success and sustainability, and the loss of events can impact the host region.

Volunteer burnout, event fatigue and competition are three common challenges that events are facing in 2018. The reliance on volunteers in an increasingly time-poor society means that events are struggling with a lack of resources. Who has room for innovation, new ideas or creativity?!

We want to understand what the biggest challenges are for your event in 2018!

UPDATE: We shared a poll to hear about what you are struggling with, now the results have been published along with some helpful insights gleaned from our experience with events throughout regional Australia.
