Word Heritage Sites as soft tourism destinations – their impacts on international arrivals and tourism receipts

Climate change threats to a floral wedding: Threats of shifting phenology to the emerging South African wedding industry

1 Introduction The wedding industry and wedding tourism in South Africa are lucrative, but emerging economic subsectors ( de Witt, 2006 ; Rogerson, Wolfaardt, 2015). The sector incorporates a large number of small enterprises, who fill market niches as they develop ( Booyens, Visser, 2010 ). It is therefore important to predict and mitigate future risks posed to this sector, to protect its sustainability ( de Witt, 2006 ). Due to the vast cultural diversity in wedding practices at the global and local scale, the focus of this study is primarily on ‘white

All the above features related to the development of the cultural

Football clubs’ sports performance in the context of their market value and GDP in the European Union regions

not in a certain territory ( Dejonghe, 2004 ). For the overall economic growth of the region, the presence of a professional sports or football club has mostly minimal direct impact. However, a professional sports club makes a town more attractive to tourism; it is able to use the finance from the taxing of the athletes, owners, and even from the club’s business as such ( Siegfried and Zimbalist, 2006 ). Marketing and sponsorship are also very important for a club’s operation. It is the sponsors that really influence the financial capacities of the club. The number
