Rebranding

  1. 1. AS Geography Unit 2 REBRANDING PLACES
  2. 7. What is rebranding? Rebranding is the way or ways in which a place is re-developed and marketed so that it gains a new identity. It can then attract new investors and visitors. It may involve both re-imaging and regeneration. Re-imaging is the remodelling of areas to counter negative perceptions and provide “post-industrial” functions e.g. retailing, leisure and tourism. Regeneration is a long term process involving social, economic and physical action to reverse decline and create sustainable communities.

Why the shift to rebranding? <ul><li>Lack of trickle down? </li></ul><ul><li>Social – benefits of flagships are not enjoyed by all residents </li></ul><ul><li>Spatial – concentration on specific spaces (based largely on profit potential) increases differences between parts of a city </li></ul><ul><li>Enhance the image of the city </li></ul><ul><li>Catalyst for further economic growth </li></ul><ul><li>New and exciting spaces </li></ul><ul><li>Attract new residents, businesses and tourists </li></ul><ul><li>Employment </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits to locals </li></ul>Criticisms?
