Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the effect of the primary determinants of visitors’ total

expenditure per trip and total daily expenditure at the event by using classic OLS

regression model and Tobit regression model to individual micro data collected by a

survey to participants at the The Nordic World Ski Championships in Falun, Sweden in

2015. It is shown that country of origin and length of stay have effects on both total

expenditure per trip and total daily expenditure at the event. While accommodation mode,

transport mode to Falun, local kilometers travelled within Falun affect only total

expenditure per trip. Visitors’ total daily expenditure at the event are also affected by age.

Determinants such as income, sex, living in Falun, living at home while visiting the

event, party size, companion age group, paid by others for accommodation, kilometers

travelled by car to Falun, number of persons if travel by car, distance to Falun, previous

visit to Falun and visiting family and friend have no effect on both total expenditure per

trip and total daily expenditure at the event.
