Abstract [en]

The title of this paper is The Experience Economy: Domino or Dynamo. A symbiosis not commonly used, but the author means to explain the experience economy like a dynamo (similar to one on a bike) which generates power to an implemented area, in this case destination development. In many countries of the world where there are creative industries, the economy that emerges from these industries has developed into an experience economy. Typical for the experience economy is that it depends on several actors with different skills and the environment in which it exists. The author wishes to raise awareness of this fast-growing economy, which is an integral part in the operations of many international companies. Hence, this paper argues that there is a link between the creative industries, experience production and a vibrant experience economy. In this quest, the author will lean on a case study developed in Indonesia. Developing countries frequently lack the necessary infrastructure for a successful tourism industry. Furthermore, many of these countries lack the tools to develop organizational strategies for sustainable use of tourism for national development: As this study shows, the experience economy has the potential to help developing countries generate economic growth. This is a qualitative study – based on a case study in Indonesia, conducted at place called Telunas Beach. Through first hand experiences, interviews, literature review and research done at the location – the author has gathered data about strategies from the private and public sector, and will present findings. This will hopefully inspire and encourage further research into the fascinating topic of the experience economies role within destination development. The case study presented in this paper will provide the reader with insights from a producer’s perspective that can trigger new thinking and create an interest in exploring this issue from additional angles.
