As one ex-president of the Hawaiian Visitors Bureau said many years ago, "Since real events do not always occur on schedule, we invent pseudo events for tour operators who must have a dance of the vestal virgins precisely at 10 am every Wednesday" (Stalker 1984). Although dated, this observation still applies to a large extent. Clearly, learning opportunities can be created from the experiences, but their primary role is to entertain (Ritzer and Liska 1997).
