On Tuesday 30 November 2010 Alexander Otgaar will defend his PhD thesis entitled: 'Industrial Tourism: Where the public meets the private.' Supervisor is professor Leo van den Berg

Time and location

The PhD defence will take place in the Senate Hall of Erasmus University Rotterdam and will start at 15.30 hrs.

About the PhD thesis

This thesis is about the development of industrial tourism in urban regions. It presents a systematic analysis of the conditions under which companies that open their doors and the regions in which they are located can take advantage of industrial tourism development. Combining insights from tourism, marketing, regional economics, urban governance and theories of the firm we develop a theory that specifies the interests of host firms and urban regions. We state that a common agenda creates opportunities for coordinated action in industrial tourism development resulting in benefits for public and private actors. We test the empirical applicability of this theory by means of four case studies of urban regions with a considerable supply of industrial tourism: Cologne, Pays de la Loire, Rotterdam and Turin.

Magazijnen essentieel voor het dagelijkse leven

René de Koster zet in een filmpje op RSM Discovery uiteen wat magazijnen betekenen voor het dagelijkse leven. In huidige magazijnen is goed nagedacht over hoe je een product op het juiste moment op de juiste plaats krijgt. Hoe anders krijg je een product dat je vandaag bestelt, morgen thuis bezorgd.
