About this product
- DescriptionThis book presents a radically invative view on trade shows as kwledge-rich places, where firms learn through observation and interaction with other ecomic actors, and as enablers, rather than mere consequences, of globalization. Traditionally seen as marketing tools, trade shows are conceptualised as temporary clusters that facilitate the creation and diffusion of kwledge across geographical distances, even in the age of social media. The book is organized in four parts. Part I lays out the conceptual foundations of the kwledge-based perspective, from the early development of trade fairs to modern-day events. Part II analyses specific global developments, focussing on the trade show ecologies of Europe, North America, and the Asia-Pacific region. Part III investigates differences in the nature of kwledge generation practices across international hub shows, exports shows, and import shows in different industries, and investigates competition between such events. Part IV discusses the implications of a kwledge-based conceptualisation of trade shows. The book will be of interest to scholars and students in ecomic geography, management, marketing, organization studies, political science, and sociology. It also has practical implications for trade show organisers on how to make their events more competitive through kwledge-based strategies; for industry associations and cities, on how to use these events for collective/place marketing purposes; and for policy makers, on how to use trade shows for export promotion and invation policies.
