5.1Market Segmentation
Caroline and Jennifer said that ‘Market segmentation is a crucial marketing strategy. Its aim is to identify and delineate market segments or set of buyers which would then become targets for the company’s marketing plans.’ (Tynan and Drayton, 1987) There are many ways to segment the market, such as age, region, environment, psychology and wages (Hall, Jones and Raffo, 2010).
Because it is a music event which includes camping, so the attendees must be able to be free for less than three days. As the objective says, the attendees should better be young people so that this event could spread young culture. People who are young also will have the passion to attend music events.
