Abstract

The current study uses the results of an origin-based survey to analyze those individuals who have not attended any special events within the last 5 years. The results indicate that those who do not go are older, retired, widowed, and have no children at home, in contrast to attendees who are younger, single, employed, and have children in the home. Implications for special events are discussed.
