Short-term events - long-term effects

The short-term nature of temporary events – trade fairs, world exhibitions, sport Championships, music festivals, and the Olympic Games – seems to stand in conflict with the lasting objectives of sustainability. 

How can provisional structures be sustainable and provide a contribution to enduring basic needs within the socio-economic context of communities surrounding the venue? Do temporary events encourage innovative planning processes and trendsetting constructions?
