DURIEUX ZUCCO, Fabricia; DO AMARAL MORETTI, Sergio Luiz  and  LENZI, Fernando Cesar. Superando la estacionalidad turística: Planificación y gerenciamiento de eventos y comunicación integrada de marketing. Estud. perspect. tur. [online]. 2013, vol.22, n.6, pp.1214-1231. ISSN 1851-1732.

Overcoming the Seasonal Tourism: Planning the Event Management and Integrated Marketing Communication. Seasonality is one of the challenges to be overcome in the tourist industry. In order to minimize the negative impacts of this phenomenon, many cities have adopted in their planning, the strategy of holding events. Such a solution has been found effective in attracting tourists, in building the image of the destination and, therefore catalyzing regional socioeconomic development. This article aims at highlighting  this issue by presenting the case of the Brazilian Beer Festival, now in its fourth edition in 2012,successfully held in the city of Blumenau (SC). A qualitative research was used with in-depth interviews gathering managers in order to obtain empirical information about the relationship between the management of the event and IMC. The results showed that the organizers adopted a synergistic operation management of the event itself and as well as the IMC principles. Channels of communication were developed with all parts involved from the identification of the most appropriate tools to the context in which they had been working on. The association between the image formation and promoting the destination was mediated by different forms of media, with emphasis on the heavy use of the internet.
