Experience Industry Management Conference

In 1999 Joseph Pine and James Gilmore proposed experiences as the fourth economic offering after commodities, goods, and services. They suggested those organizations that were able to provide meaningful experiences to their customers would rise above the commoditized competition. In 2008, Gary Ellis and Bob Rossman built upon this experience economy concept and proposed a new industry categorization, experience industries. As they noted, “the expanding set of industries that are related to traditional park, recreation, and tourism [offerings] share a common purpose: all are fundamentally in the business of staging quality experiences that are valued by guests, participants, clients, patients, or students.”

In an effort to continue the dialogue around the topic of experience industries, the Department of Recreation Management in the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University (BYU) hosts an annual Experience Industry Management (EIM) Conference for academics and professionals.

The next conference will take place March 26-27, 2015. This two-day event held on campus at BYU will bring together leading academics and professionals from a variety of disciplines and industries to collaboratively converse on all things experience related.

This year we are adding a pre-conference research retreat on March 25th at BYU’s Aspen Grove near Sundance Resort. The retreat will provide researchers interested in the study of experiences opportunities to present completed research, share research ideas, and develop collaborative projects. For the retreat we define experiences quite broadly and hope to attract a diverse array of researchers and research topics. It will be a collaborative and intimate experience with ample opportunities for meaningful interaction. Aspen Grove is a beautiful mountain retreat and interested attendees could also take advantage of night skiing after the day’s meetings at Sundance Resort just down the road.
