Submitting a paper

A key recurring feature of this Symposium is the recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of place branding, marketing and management, the multi-dimensional nature of places and need for co-operation between stakeholders. Once again, this symposium will therefore focus on the creation, development and implementation of coherent and appropriate responses to these issues that lead to effective place management, marketing and branding decisions, and which particularly involve the interaction between academics and practitioners.

There will be prizes for best papers in various categories.

The theme of the 2017 4th Corfu Symposium on Managing and Marketing Places supports submissions that consider both the theory and practice of place management, marketing, and branding, along with developments into our knowledge about sustainable places and responsible tourism, and which seek to further our understanding of these issues from the perspectives or gazes of the multiple stakeholders involved in all aspects of responsible and sustainable place making.
