Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, 16(2), s. 208- 224. Doi: 10.1080/15022250.2015.1108865

What are the benefits that visitors gain from participating in a nonprofit food festival? Festival benefit is defined here as the ultimate value that people place on what they believe they have gained from observation or participation in activities and interaction with settings provided by festivals. Previous research has mainly focused on motivations for attending events, which are the drive side of the behaviour. Keywords: Psycho-social benefits; food festival; atmosphere; enjoyment; Gladmatfestivalen; Stavanger.

Exploring the Success of the Gladmatfestivalen in Stavanger (Stavanger Food Festival)

Andersson, Tommy Daniel; Getz, Donald Philip & Mykletun, Reidar J. (red.). Festival and Event Management in Nordic Countries

Food festivals play a minor role in the recent Norwegian surplus of festivals. As niche events they face less competition than the dominating field of music festivals, however their success can no way be taken for granted. The purpose of this study is to illuminate success factors of festivals by presenting a case study of the Gladmat Festival in Stavanger, Norway, which has been arranged annually since 1999 and has attracted positive attention and 250.000 visitors, and been economically successful. Data have been collected by interviews, observation and document studies. It is concluded that the festival’s success depends mainly upon its embedding in a strong network of food and meal producing institutions and organisations, restaurants and outstanding chefs. The network is resting upon a tradition of food production of the area, and at the outset the local food produce was the nave of the Gladmat Festival. The scope of the festival has developed from regional to national and Nordic coverage, and it reaches out with activities and network development to the Nordic region and also internationally. While networking has been essential, entrepreneurial leadership placed within a simple and cheap organisational structure has been a second reason for the success. Taken together, the leadership, networking and food oriented context have made sponsoring and donations available and about 100 exhibitors have annually been willing to pay for their stands at the festival.

Organisering av festivaler

Døving, Runar & Svensson, Göran (red.). Leksjoner i markedsvitenskap

I dette kapittelet diskuteres fenomenet festivaler og hvordan festivaler lykkes i konkurranse med et stadig voksende festivalmarked. Festivaler er unike organisatorisk i og med at selve livsgrunnlaget for organisasjonen vanligvis er avhengig av noe få dager eller uker av året når selve festivalen blir arrangert. I denne sammenheng møter festivalorganisasjoner på utfordringer som angår ressurser som økonomisk og menneskelig kapital. Festivaler er avhengig av støtte fra mange forskjellige støttespillere som lokalsamfunnet, publikum, sponsorer og medprodusenter som musikere, kunstnere og mat- og drikkeprodusenter, og festivalen må oppfylle disses til tider motstridende behov, og falle i deres smak for å bli en suksess. I kapittelet presenteres flere faktorer som påvirker festivalers evne til å overleve og gjøre seg gjeldende; Økonomi er en sentral faktor for å lykkes, og økonomistyring og verdisikring er nødvendig. Markedskommunikasjon er vanligvis en forutsetning, dermed blir det viktig med kunnskap om markedsundersøkelser. Festivalledere må ha kunnskap om alle sidene av festivaler og med en begrenset organisasjon som har få eller ingen ansatte blir organisasjonen følgelig avhengig av good will fra frivillige. Med en liten organisasjon blir en også avhengig av eksterne aktører og nettverksbygging med disse viktige aktørene kreves. Ved å bygge opp et festivalprodukt med en klar identitet og fremtidsplan forenkler festivalen sin kommunikasjon med markedet og vill letter skilles ut fra andre festivaler. Kapittelet konkluderer med at festivalsuksess er et relativt begrep, og blir ofte målt ut i fra subjektive faktorer der festivalsuksess kan bli målt ut i fra festivalen sine interne mål, publikumsoppmøte eller vekst. Til syvende og sist vil sunn økonomi, forhold til lokalsamfunn og markedsproduktet være noen av de tydeligste grunnpilarer for å lykkes.

Burned child shuns the fire: ethical infrastructure’s relation to whistleblowing behavior, intention to leave and future whistleblowing intentions

[Academic lecture]. The Eighth Nordic Working Life Conference.

Abstract This research investigates the association between ethical infrastructure and whistleblowing in work organizations. Ethical infrastructure consist of formal and informal systems that facilitate the ethical effectiveness of the organizations (Tenbrunsel et al., 2003). Whistleblowing is defined as the disclosure by organization members (former or current) of illegal, immoral or illegitimate practices under the control of their employers, to persons or organizations that may be able to effect action” (Miceli, & Near, 1985). Unethical behavior included counterproductive behaviors, destructive leadership, mismanagement of work tasks, corruption, fraud and misappropriation of funds. Quantitative data was collected by mailed questionnaires to a random sample of workforces in Norway. We studied ethical infrastructure`s prediction of whistleblowing in two steps. First, whether the presence of formal systems (whistleblowing procedures) and informal systems (justice climate) predicted the likelihood of reporting on observed unethical behavior. Second, whether formal systems (whistleblowing procedures and formal sanctions of the wrongdoer) and informal systems (justice climate and countervailing forces such as absence sanction of the wrongdoer and retaliation) predicted whistleblowers` intentions to leave the organization and their willingness to whistle-blow in the future. Results showed that 1) likelihood of reporting wrongdoing was predicted by procedures and justice climate; 2) likelihood of whistleblowers’ intentions to leave was predicted by absence of sanctions against the wrongdoer, and low justice climate; and 3) likelihood of willingness to future whistleblowing was negatively predicted by absence of sanctions against the wrongdoer and retaliation. The results show how organizations` formal actions to assure good tackling of unethical behavior in the organization, such as whistleblowing, may be compromised if the forces of the informal systems pulls in the opposite direction. Further studies should include organizational measures that enable and disable organizational members to whistle-blow.

Why do exhibitors participate at a festival?

[Academic lecture]. 17th Nordic Symposium in Tourism and Hospitality Research.

Exhibitors play a vital role the production of some festivals. Without competent and devoted exhibitors, festivals¿ quality can be affected. However, participating at a festival entails resource mobilisation of exhibitors, having to plan for and acquire certain material and move their business out of permanent premises into the festival venue. Therefore, it is important to enhance our knowledge of these contributors in a festival setting. The aim of this paper is to investigate why exhibitors attend at a festival and what they see as rewarding for their participation. The festival used as a case is the Gladmatfestival in Stavanger, a festival which has been arranged annually since 1999, and holds 100 to 140 exhibitors, and approximately 250.000 people visit the festival. Data were collected by interviewing 14 exhibitors at the festival arena during 2003 and repeated interviews with the festival manager up to 2006. The exhibitors` motivation to attend the festival can be divided into four main and interrelated areas: celebration, professional contact, marketing and economy. First and most important, the exhibitors viewed the festival as a break out of their daily routine, where the exhibitors can celebrate their profession. Second, professional contact was also important using the festival as an arena for developing and maintaining their business networks. Similarly, exhibitors¿ personal tie to the festival organization was also vital in their motivation to participate. Third, exhibitors use the festival as an informal arena to meet potential customers in a face to face marketing setting. Finally, economy appears to be a limited motivation factor, only present when exhibitors evaluate the possibility to break even.
