Μπογκοτά : Συνέδριο για το branding των πόλεων με τίτλο, The search for place identity

Το ενδιαφέρον θέμα της αναζήτησης της ταυτότητας ενός τόπου θα συζητηθεί στη πόλη της Bogota τον Ιανουάριο 2010.

Έπειτα από την επιτυχία του 1ου Διεθνούς Συνεδρίου Place Branding στο Βερολίνο το 2008,
οι οργανωτές επιθυμούν να προχωρήσουν ένα βήμα πιο κοντά στη δημιουργία 'κοινής γλώσσας' ανάμεσα στις διάφορες απόψεις που κατατίθενται.

Το συνέδριο στοχεύει στον εμπλουτισμό του διαλόγου μεταξύ Ακαδημαικών, Επαγγελματιών και Εκπροσώπων πόλεων οι οποίοι συχνά προσεγγίζουν παρόμοια θέματα από διαφορετική γωνία. Υιοθετεί με σαφήνεια μία διεπιστημονική και διεθνή προοπτική που στοχεύει να επιληφθεί του θέματος σε όλη του την πολυπλοκότητα.


2nd International Place Branding Conference

Branding Cities: The search for place identity,20th - 22nd January 2011, Bogotá Colombia

Following the succes of the 1st Internatinal Place Branding Conference in Berlin in 2008, we will move one step closer to developing a ‘common language’ among the different disciplines involved. The conference aims at enriching the dialogue between academics, practitioners and city representatives who often approach very similar issues from different angles. It explicitly adopts an interdisciplinary and international perspective aiming to address the theme in its full complexity.

Contributions

Contributions by scholars, researchers, doctoral students, practitioners, consultants and local/regional authorities are invited that address the general conference theme in divergent places, at different scales and in varied contexts. Empirical work and case studies that can offer new insights and best practice guidance are particularly encouraged. Contributions will preferably (but not exclusively) focus on one or more of the following conference sub-themes:

  • Theoretical disambiguation of place branding/marketing
  • Conceptualization of place identity
  • Involving local communities in place branding/marketing
  • The use of culture in place branding/marketing
  • Branding the creative city
  • Place branding/marketing as a tool of urban and regional development
  • Experiencial Place Branding
  • Place Branding through storytelling
  • Place branding and management of tourism destinations
  • International networks and place branding
