Corfu once again will be host destination to a four-day conference on place management, marketing, and branding. The 4th Corfu Symposium on Managing & Marketing Places will be held April 24-27 at the Mayor Mon Repos Palace Art Hotel.
Organised by the Institute of Place Management’s Responsible Tourism Special Interest Group at Manchester Metropolitan University, the Corfu Symposium is an annual event dedicated to developing the theory and practice of place management and marketing, within a context of responsible tourism on the island of Corfu.
The theme of the 2017 symposium “Place Making from Various Gazes” will reflect current developments in both the theory and practice of place management, marketing, and branding, along with developments into knowledge about sustainable places and responsible tourism.
Unique amongst academic conferences, the symposium will offer scholars the opportunity to engage directly with place making, management and marketing issues as attendees will include local businesses, policy makers and other stakeholders eager to implement cutting-edge research, that can make a positive difference to Corfu.
The 4th Corfu Symposium will include a full social programme of activities including trips to local specialty craft and food producers, visits to sites of interest and a gala dinner offering the best of local Corfiot food in a unique setting with outstanding views.
