Finally, the structural equation model (SEM) was used to analyze the model and confirm that it had a good fit. This study made a number of important findings. The hosting of sport mega-events has a significant effect on city brand awareness. City brand awareness has a significant effect on city brand image. Sport mega-events have an indirect effect on city brand image, and city brand awareness has a mediating effect. These research results could be used as a reference for cities that actively seek to establish city branding. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality & Quantity Springer Journals
