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 2018 5th Corfu Symposium on Managing & Marketing Places is to explore the utopian or dystopian visions associated with the place practices we study, promote or enact. Whilst we do not expect all authors to provide this reflection themselves, time will be devoted, within the symposium, to collectively discuss and debate the potential impact on places tomorrow from the work we do today.

Authors should submit a 1000 word abstract electronically to: no later than 11th December 2017.
