India’s cities require using illumination not only in functional terms but to further illuminate public spaces such as streets, squares and gardens with security and commercial purposes.
There are 3 types of illumination:
a) Permanent illumination;
b) Seasonal illumination and
c) Illumination events.
Although the two first types of illumination is common; Illumination events have been postulated as something innovative to generate tourist attraction during a short period of time. In this context, cities around the world have created events based on spectacles of light, theme lights, mood lights, color and sound. Considering that this is a relatively new phenomenon, there is not much academic literature focusing on the use of light as a tourism attraction. For this reason, the aim of this webinar is to analyze the profile, motivations and levels of satisfaction of tourism demand in illumination events.
