Abstract

Within Santiago, Chile's capital city, Barrio is a fundamental urban concept: an identity of place that defines a social space more than the territorial boundary of a designated area. Nearly 30 years of sustained, economic growth have positioned Chile, and Santiago with 40% of the country's population, as a tourist, financial and investment centre for South America. After a general decline of the inner-city area during the time of dictatorship (1973-1990), three inner-city residential barrios are being re-defined by their social and urban heritage as part of the “coolest” city of South America. These residential barrios possess the social characteristics of an urban unit within the concept of an ethical city—autonomy, conviviality, connectivity and diversity—and, in form and use, the basis of urban cultural tourism, a living heritage of residential architecture, public space and urban culture. The spatial and economic transformation of these barrios shifts the existing dynamic between the residents' social capital and the barrios' symbolic capital to the question of whose rights and interest should prevail. Through a literature review, policy review and an analysis of morphology and land use of three barrios, this article draws lessons to assist a re-thinking of the development of this urban, social-spatial unit of Chilean cities.

The purpose of this paper is to propose a model to evaluate the factors that influence soccer attendance at stadiums and arenas.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to propose a model to evaluate the factors that influence soccer attendance at stadiums and arenas.

Design/methodology/approach

The quantitative method based on a structural equation modeling using partial least squares.

Findings

The results validated the proposed model. The results also showed that the greater the identification of the sports consumer with his team, the greater the impact on his satisfaction, increasing his loyalty to the team and his intention to buy tickets for a soccer match. It was also detected that the higher the risk perception, the lower the purchase intention of tickets. In addition, the study showed that the greater the involvement of sports consumers with soccer, the greater their intention to buy tickets.

Originality/value

One of the academic implications was to prove that team identification can be a predictor of satisfaction, and that the interrelationship between identification with the team, satisfaction at attending soccer matches at the stadium and loyalty to the team constructs has a high impact on the purchase decision of the sports consumer. In addition, the study tests a model that aggregates several constructs with empirical data for other researchers to better understand the phenomenon of attendance in stadiums and arenas.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the optimization of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) processing for the microbial inactivation on low-sodium sliced vacuum-packaged turkey breast supplemented with a natural antimicrobial compound (carvacrol).

Design/methodology/approach

A response surface methodology was used to model and describe the effects of different pressures (200–650 MPa) and holding times (30–300 s) during HHP processing of low-salt ready-to-eat turkey breast supplemented with 200 mg/kg of carvacrol on survival of the target pathogen (Listeria sp.) and spoilage microflora and on the quality attributes, including pH, syneresis, CIE color and lipid oxidation.

Findings

The HHP parameters influenced (p<0.05) the lethality rates and syneresis but did not affect the pH values and lipid oxidation of the products evaluated. According to the required performance criteria for Listeria post-lethality treatment, a treatment at 600 MPa/180 s (at 25°C) appears to be suitable for the studied low-sodium product. The HHP bacterial inactivation effects can notably be potentiated via the presence of carvacrol, and is useful at sensory acceptable sub-inhibitory levels.

Originality/value

This study shows that combined HHP plus additives may produce similar safety and shelf-life extension effects with mild HHP treatments, creating a global increase in the quality of HHP-processed food in addition to reducing costs on equipment maintenance and increasing industry productivity.

Abstract

Purpose

The aim of this paper is to verify whether, in the tourism sector, the “family business model” is an important development opportunity and, in particular, if it is an innovation driver for this industry development. In the literature, there is no conclusive evidence of this for the tourism sector. In this context, the authors investigate personal and family needs and preferences alongside the relationship between family business model, growth and profit maximization and the development of tourism businesses through innovation drivers.

Design/methodology/approach

To develop this topic, the authors conducted an extensive literature review considering the scientific papers published and contained mainly in database in the last 10 years (2010–2020) and focused the attention on the last five years. The authors ran content and structural analysis on the collected sources by main scientific databases (EBSCO, Scopus, Thomson Reuter, etc.). Based on a systematic literature review, the analysis was conducted using statistical criteria and bibliometric indicators. In detail, the authors used systematic literature review, bibliometric analysis and automatic text analysis (ATA) tools for identified lexicon analysis and strategic keywords and used statistical correlation to classify the different approaches in the literature and to outline the orientations of the various research groups.

Findings

From this analysis, the correlation between tourism, hospitality, entrepreneurship, life cycle and innovation dynamics was analysed. Important research gaps are identified, and future research priorities are suggested. Implications for both family business and tourism theory are discussed.

Originality/value

While the intersection between tourism management and family business model has been established in the literature, the number of related publications is still limited. Against this background, a literature review as a total analysis was an adequate and practicable research methodology. This paper proposes a comprehensive literature review and a reflection on the potential developments and applications for family business in the tourism sector. Authors also suggest several research directions that have not been adequately investigated yet. In particular, scholars do not seem to have caught all the implications of innovation adoption, especially for SMEs and family ownerships in tourism.
