Turismo de Prática Desportiva: um Segmento do Mercado de Turismo Desportivo

Sport Practice Tourism: a segment of the Sport Tourism Market

Pedro Carvalho () and Rui Lourenço

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Sport Tourism represents the knowledge and the group of practices where Sport and Tourism became interdependent. This overlapping area turns clearly at two levels that might be named by Sport Tourism Spectacle and Sport Tourism Practice. According to Pigeassou [9] the foundations of sport tourism do not consist purely of classifying sport tourism activities using categories employed in sport activities. In this article we provide a theoretical framework for the understanding of the market segment in Sport Tourism Practice, looking at their client behaviour typology (enthusiastic and casual), their motivations and high lightening the role this framework plays on the tourist destiny development. Furthermore we present some empirical results of a seminal experimental design.
