Abstract: In this study, a two-step refinement of conceptual models was performed: firstly, an existing model developed by Oppermann and Chon [1997. Convention participation decision-making process. Annals of Tourism Research, 24(1), 178รข191] was used as the foundation framework; secondly, while referring to the model and other literature, a modified model was proposed as the conceptual framework for future study. The new refined model of factors affecting convention participation decision-making comprises four main dimensions, association/conference factors, personal/business factors, location factors, and total cost factors. Attributes under each dimension were also carefully examined. This proposed model should provide research insights, make a contribution to the existing literature and guide future research on the factors affecting convention participation decision-making.
