And though the world has changed in many ways since then, the way to a customer's heart has not. In fact, the idea of staging experiences to leave a memorable — and lucrative — impression is now more relevant than ever. With an ongoing torrent of brands attacking consumers from all sides, how do you make yours stand out?
Welcome to the new Experience Economy. With this fully updated edition of the book, Pine and Gilmore make an even stronger case that experience is the missing link between a company and its potential audience. It offers new rich examples — including the U.S. Army, Heineken Experience, Autostadt, Vinopolis, American Girl Place, and others — to show fresh approaches to scripting and staging compelling experiences, while staying true to the very real economic conditions of the day.
