The application of consumer behaviour and marketing theory to practical issues in providing tourism's core product: experiences. Includes an applied research opportunity with local businesses.
Tourism is one of the largest and most complex service providers not only in the world but also in New Zealand. It provides a plethora of unique marketing challenges, particularly in holiday and event markets. In this paper we aim to apply consumer behaviour and marketing theory to practical issues in providing tourism's core product: experiences. In 2018, we have the exclusive opportunity to study brand experiences - in particular, destination and place brands - through applied research with local businesses.
