International branding conference (Manchester).png
International Place Branding Conference Great Britain, Manchester 2013.01.08.-2013.01.20. Place branding, place management, place marketing, strategic spatial development, public-private place partnerships, all synonyms describing one thing - the application of business principles to place. The language and conventions of business have spread across the world, to places of all scales, from district centre management through to nation branding. This widespread extension of Market principles to places (districts, towns, cities, regions, countries and even continents) is not without critics, with many economists explaining that it is firms that compete not places. Nevertheless, those charged with place leadership chant the mantra of place competition, hence the expanding business of place. The aim of this conference is to accept these alternative realities and provide an academic 'green zone' for contributors to bring their perspective on the business of place for the explicit purpose of theoretical development in the area. Based in Manchester, the original modern city, delegates will play a pivotal role in making sense of the state of the knowledge for academics, practitioners and policy makers. [30]
