Abstract

Structured Abstract Purpose: There are many ways of viewing, interpreting, and even conceptualizing BRICS growth. This paper considers image regeneration and how this helps enhance place competitiveness. A focus on events and the spectacle they create also challenges us to think about sustainable futures. To supplement this focus on image regeneration and competitiveness, it is important to discuss and outline triple bottom line impacts as a framework to consider going forward. Approach: Looking at the BRICS, the growing events, tourism and leisure industries transcend private and public business practices and can help align with more contemporary sustainable development practices and regeneration agendas. Such agendas can in turn help enhance destination competitiveness and image. While we need (and should) continue to assess and address economic impacts and development, it is just as important to consider environmental impacts and social impacts on a destination and its residents when considering competitiveness. Findings: This conceptual paper frames insight from the literature to reflect on and consider research directions linked to triple bottom line impacts. The paper puts emphasis on the need to consider social and environmental impacts of events. Originality/Value: This paper links conceptual discussions of image regeneration and competitiveness with triple bottom line impacts to look at directions for BRICS nations. It is useful for policy makers and planners who look at the ‘big picture’ of event hosting and argues the need for more sustainable policy and planning agendas.
