Abstract

This article focuses on the differences and/or similarities between first-time and repeat visitors at the Volksblad Arts Festival as an alternate approach to market segmentation. The research was conducted by means of a visitor survey, during which 397 questionnaires were administered. Two-way frequency tables and -square tests were used to compare first-time and repeat visitors based on socio-demographics, behavioural characteristics, overall satisfaction with the festival and the type of shows/productions attended. The results indicate differences that could affect the sustainability and future of the festival. These differences should be considered as determinants when the festival programme is designed and marketed.


Hierdie artikel fokus op die verskille en/of ooreenkomste tussen eerstekeer- en herhalende besoekers na die Volksblad Kunstefees as 'n alternatiewe benadering tot marksegmentering. Die navorsing is uitgevoer deur middel van 'n besoekersopname, waar 397 vraelyste geadministreer is. Twee-rigting frekwensietabelle en -toetse is gebruik om eerstekeer- en herhalende besoekers gebaseer op sosio-demografiese aspekte, gedragseienskappe, algehele tevredenheid met die fees sowel as die tipes vertonings/produksies wat bygewoon is, te vergelyk. Die resultate toon verskille wat moontlik die volhoubaarheid en toekoms van die fees kan beïnvloed. Hierdie verskille moet oorweeg word wanneer die program ontwerp en bemark word.
