Abstract

The aim of this paper is to identify empirically the factors that influence the duration of the temporary exhibitions, distinguishing between prolonged and non prolonged ones. We use a sample of 259 exhibitions that took place in Italy over the period 2002-2005. The empirical evidence allows for the identification of some structural characteristics of this market and the existence of observable differences between prolonged and non prolonged shows.
