Aims & Scope

Place management and place branding are issues of increasing international importance, as places constantly adapt to meet the needs of their users against a back-drop of economic uncertainty, demographic change and technological innovation.

This journal is unique in bringing together research from management, real estate, marketing, tourism, retailing, geography, public administration, sociology, planning and design to advance understanding of place management, marketing and development.
