The local presenter of a tour by the Royal New Zealand Ballet is furious at not being given a "heads up" that a touring Russian company planned to book the hall on the heels of the New Zealand company's scheduled appearance in Rotorua, undermining the box office potential of both appearances. Rebecca Devine reports in the Rotorua Daily Post:

The major UK dance companies get together every 6 months to compare touring diaries and talk about about other matters of mutual interest. I believe that their schedules can be disrupted to some extent by commercial touring ballet groups like this NZ example.

I guess that in both instances there needs to be a concerted effort to pool informaton and get the commercial promoters involved as well, otherwise it's inevitable.

An organisation I belong to has two international conferences taking place this summer; one ends in the UK on August 7th and the other one starts, you guessed it, on August 8th, in central Norway. I'm sure attendance at both will be adversely effected.
