    Abstract

    Drawing on the results of an empirical study, this chapter examines the case of the Ulaanbaatar Naadam within the framework of the literature on cultural authenticity and with reference to the contribution of sporting events and competitions to the latter. Differences between overseas and domestic markets attending the event are investigated and conclusions are drawn on the role of cultural authenticity in motivating visitors to attend the Naadam festival.
