Abstract: Large cultural events are often catalysts for the development of the cultural economy. This paper examines the extent to which being a European capital of culture influenced inter-industrial and intra-industrial knowledge spillovers in cultural production. The main focus is on the event's ability to strengthen the involved organizations' capabilities for innovation. The location for the study is the Stavanger region on the west coast of Norway, the European capital of culture in 2008. The results indicate that being a European capital of culture affected inter-industrial and intra-industrial knowledge spillovers, however only for a limited part of the cultural and creative sector.
