Video games, culture and cuisine
The last section of the new Handbook On The Experience Economy explores video games, culture, cuisine, tourism, healthcare, events and more as phenomena in this scientific field. Moreover, the handbook looks into how receivers react to experiential elements of experience economy studies.
From these very specifics to the more abstract, the handbook also entails a thorough collection of new theory and analysis in the field.
Innovation, networks and design
The first section of the handbook focuses on basic debates surrounding the nature and importance of the experience economy, while the second section presents more specific topics including innovation, networks and the design of experiences. From general to specific and freom theory to reality in the field of experience economy, it is the hope that this new handbook as the publisher notes “will prove an invaluable resource to researchers and students in management, marketing, psychology and economics”.
