International Researcher Meeting – Value co-creation in the Experience Economy, for researchers interested in event management and related issues, such as cultural production and tourism, management of creative projects, social media and marketing – old hands, new beginners, doctors and all those who are interested to study event management in practice.
The concept of value co-creation has been a current issue in the field of new product development and in service systems and service logic perspective. As defined by O’Hern and Rindfleisch (2010) the paradigm of co-creation, challenges the traditional marketing paradigm by a new perspective, in which, customers are active co-creators of the products/services they buy and use. By adding to the concept the context of the experience economy, we invite both academic and business stakeholders to research and shape the future of the co-creation experience in multidisciplinary settings. We are open for various scientific perspectives of looking at the phenomenon in your research proposals. What we expect, however, is that the submissions share the joint context of interest in Art and Event Management and Experience Economy.
