There is a range of other facilities needed by tourists other than attractions and accommodation. The most important of these are events and information.
Large events can attract many tourists to destinations. Sporting events such as major football or rugby games can attract many thousands of tourists to a destination. Cultural events such as festivals and major concerts can also provide a boost to tourist numbers. For example, Christmas markets and ‘winter wonderland’ events are becoming increasingly popular in towns and cities.
