中文摘要

This study assesses host residents’ perceived impacts of the 2009 Kaohsiung World
Games (the Games) on their communities. The main purpose was to investigate host
residents’ perceptions concerning the impact of staging the Games, looking at the
issues affecting communities both before and after the event. Importantly the study
introduces a new theoretical basis for assessing event tourism impacts. From a
statistical perspective, significant differences were found concerning perceived
general benefits, as well as negative impacts. The Nicosia model was used to help
explain the findings. Overall, residents held relatively high expectations of general
benefits, benefits of community involvement and development, in addition to
economic and image benefits. Subsequent to the Games, residents realised that
tangible or more direct benefits (such as additional recreational opportunities, short
and long term boosts to the local economy, and increased employment) were lower
than expected. The study concludes by emphasising the importance of adopting a
strategic approach, which focuses on engaging beneficiaries (host residents) in the
early stages of event development. Planners should also seek to match the
destination’s development policies to the desired outcomes of the event.
