According to Bradley (2012), meetings tourism refers to “travel associated with attendance at a corporate or association meeting, conference, or public trade exhibition” (p. 6). The meetings tourism market has become increasingly important to cities that once depended on heavy industry for their economic strength. Interest in meetings tourism has grown for three main reasons. First, the average meetings tourist spends two to three more money than the typical vacation tourist does. Second, meetings tourism can create jobs in the local economy. Finally, meetings tourism may lead to cities receiving a “facelift” with landscapes being improved and city centers being revitalized, which may in turn improve civic pride. City improvements may also encourage meetings tourists to return to a host city at a future date for business, pleasure, or even a change in residence.

Write the summary using your notes. Make sure you do not add anything which does not appear in the original (e.g. your own comments).
Check the summary to make sure you have covered all the main points. Make sure you have included a reference to the source.
