In particular, SNSs’ network externalities are crucial to the success of the information and communication technologies industry. Thus, this study investigated how SNSs’ network externalities affect users’ perceptions of benefits, satisfaction, and restaurant information-sharing intentions. This study found that perceived network size and perceived complementarity significantly influenced perceived usefulness. Furthermore, perceived referent network size, perceived complementarity, and perceived compatibility significantly influenced perceived enjoyment. In addition, perceived benefits significantly influenced satisfaction, which in turn significantly influenced restaurant information-sharing intentions on SNSs. These findings have considerable implications for understanding the role of SNSs’ network externalities in sharing information. Blog - An Exploratory Study of Convention Destination Competitiveness from the Attendees Perspective: Importance-Performance Analysis and Repeated Measures of Manova http://jht.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/40/5/589?rss=1 http://jht.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/40/5/589?rss=1 Mon, 27 Jun 2016 04:22:11 +0200 Destination competitiveness has become a prominent part of hospitality and tourism literature. Competitiveness, however, is not easily defined or uniformly calculated because a number of diverse factors must be considered. Although meeting planners’ site selection criteria has been studied in existing convention destination research, the attendees’ perspective has rarely been examined. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the indicators that affect a convention destination’s competitiveness in the eyes of convention attendees. Data were collected from three trade shows hosted by three different convention destinations, which resulted in 696 usable responses for data analyses. Importance-performance analysis (IPA) was implemented on seven attributes of convention destination competitiveness. In addition, the overall destination competitiveness indices were calculated to see the relative competitiveness among the destinations. Repeated measures of MANOVA were conducted to complement and to offer valid interpretation of the IPA results. Blog - Stakeholders views of enclave tourism: A Grounded Theory Approach http://jht.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/40/5/557?rss=1 http://jht.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/40/5/557?rss=1 Mon, 27 Jun 2016 04:22:11 +0200 Using a grounded theory approach, this study investigates stakeholders’ views of enclave tourism in the island of Mauritius. In-depth interviews with tourism stakeholders were conducted and data were analyzed using the principles of grounded theory. Seven subthemes emerged from the analysis and these were categorized into two main themes: enclave tourism as an agent of empowerment/improvement and enclave tourism as a force of sociocultural destruction/denial of freedom. The themes suggest that stakeholders’ views are nuanced and often contradictory. In line with the principles of grounded theory, a conceptual framework explaining stakeholders’ views of enclave tourism is developed. The findings are discussed with existing literature and similarities and contradictions are noted. Unlike what is usually claimed by researchers and scholars, enclave tourism development results in some environmental and socioeconomic benefits, particularly with respect to sustainable hotel operations, empowerment of local community and women, and entrepreneurial opportunities.
