The experience economy
20 years ago, American authors Joseph Pine and James Gilmore predicted the rise of the experience economy. A manner of value creation with personal experiences as the greatest differentiator. With hindsight we can say they were spot on. Experience as an economical offering has permeated in all domains of branding, marketing and organisational thinking.
BIS Publishers presents: Joseph Pine x Tinker
What does B. Joseph Pine II think of this development? How did the authors get along after they hit on this powerful concept?
We discuss these questions in the context of our new book. The authors, Erik and Stan, of Worlds of Wonder – experience design for curious people, are the two pioneers in this sector. They explore the power of experiences for personal development and transformation that are, according to Pine, the final and last economical offerings in service design. The book covers 25 years of XD; and the forthcoming 25 years.
The launch will take place on Friday, 1st February; 8pm to 10pm (doors open from 7.30pm), at Grote Zaal, Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam.
Access is free, but sign-in is required.
