The study explores negative and positive impacts of events in both developing and developed nations. Using Zimbabwe and The United Kingdom as examples, the aim is to demonstrate the different ways event impacts affect different societies. The main finding was the discovery of a gap in existing event studies, clarifying that there are limited frameworks that are intended to gauge the scope of event impacts within emerging nations. Additionally, settling that events can result in negative and positive impacts, however this is determined by the implementation of the event, which is fundamentally subjective to social, political and economic impacts within the community, thus again questioning the literature in relation to developing nations.
