In today’s economy, consumers are interested in not only purchasing a product, but purchasing an experience that envelops the consumer in a unique and memorable event, enhancing the shopping event. Author of The Experience Economy Joseph Pine identifies Walt Disney as the genius forerunner of the Experience Economy due to his ability to create a never-before-seen, immersive, entertaining experience, Disneyland. From Build-a-Bear and Apple to Hard Rock Café and Chuck-E-Cheese, many corporations have identified unique ways to heighten their customers’ engagement with their products. In this corporate seminar, learn how Walt Disney pioneered this field, how modern companies are engaging customers today, and how you can find unique ways to connect with your own clients.
