Dynamic Pricing In Major League Baseball Tickets: Issues And Challenges, John T. Drea, Andrew Nahlik 2015 Illinois College

Dynamic Pricing In Major League Baseball Tickets: Issues And Challenges, John T. Drea, Andrew Nahlik

Atlantic Marketing Association Proceedings

A rapidly growing trend in the business of professional sports is the use of dynamic pricing as a tool for maximizing revenue generation. Dynamic pricing (DP) is defined as a system in which prices respond to supply and demand pressures in a real time (or nearly real time) manner (Sahay 2007). American Airlines is credited with the first widespread use of DP as a pricing tool to handle the mismatches in supply and demand for certain flights (McAfee & te Velde 2006). DP has spread to numerous other industries, including entertainment, hotels, manufacturing to order, and lately, to Major League Baseball.


Municipal Tourism Promotion: Mid-Size Cities In The United States, Peggy O. Shields 2015 University of Southern Indiana

Municipal Tourism Promotion: Mid-Size Cities In The United States, Peggy O. Shields

Atlantic Marketing Association Proceedings

The competitive environment in the tourism industry requires municipalities interested in attracting tourists’ dollars to strategically manage city resources. Often public and private sector bodies cooperate and combine their efforts and resources to promote visitation to a city emphasizing the desire to maximize the limited resources of each available for tourism promotion. To succeed cities are challenged with finding an identity, or ‘personality’ that has a unique combination of functional and symbolic attributes to differentiate themselves from countless other destination options (Hankinson 2001). A city’s distinctiveness can be built on many different characteristics, such as cultural events and institutions ...

Chinese Consumers' Involvement In Wine Consumption And Their Willingness To Visit Wineries In California, Mahmood Hussain, Roblyn Simeon, Lutfus Sayeed

Atlantic Marketing Association Proceedings

This research fills a gap in wine tourism literature, taking into account the effects of consumers’ involvement in the pre-purchase stages on their willingness to visit wineries in California or in a foreign country. The theoretical framework presented in this paper provides support for a strong linkage between product involvement, consumption, and eventual propensity to visit a wine destination. As of this writing this paper constitutes the first of its kind econometric study of these effects.

Marital Leisure Satisfaction: Investigating Comparative Skill Levels Within Marital Leisure Activities, Benjamin Dayley

Their gender and the skill-gender interactions were also included in the analysis. This study followed up on ...

Στην εκπαίδευση του 19ουαιώνα επικρατεί η «μάθηση γνωρίζοντας», που πραγματοποιείται με διαλέξεις, βιβλία, φίλμς (βίντεο-εικόνες). Στον 21ο αιώνα η εκπαίδευση και η διδασκαλία απαιτεί ευθυκρισία και απόκτηση δεξιοτήτων άρα «μάθηση κάνοντας» (Sandler στον Aldrich 2009, p.xxi) η οποία πρέπει να περιλαμβάνει νέα, εξελιγμένα, πιο αποτελεσματικά μέσα μεταφοράς της πληροφορίας, με στοιχεία που προσομοιάζουν την εργασιακή πραγματικότητα. Πλέον μεγάλοι σημαντικοί οργανισμοί όπως οι ένοπλες δυνάμεις, τα σώματα ασφαλείας, η αεροναυπηγική κ.ά., σε δυτικές χώρες περιλαμβάνουν τα παίγνια και τις προσομοιώσεις ως απαραίτητο μέσο στην εκπαίδευση των στελεχών τους, ιδιαίτερα σε καταστάσεις με επικινδυνότητα (Κιάφφας & Αυθίνος, 2013), αλλά και πολλά ...

Free To Play: Mobile Gaming And The Precipitous Rise Of Freemium, Craig Heier

The Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Student Research

With the abundance of games that enter the App Store marketplace, developers struggle to compete for the user’s attention and potential download. Unlike traditional console-games, mobile-based consumers tend to be more apprehensive towards purchasing an app or a game if they are unable to trial it beforehand. These factors have contributed to the freemium business model becoming the face of the mobile gaming industry.

Managing The Wilderness Experience At Olympic National Park: A Study Of Day And Overnight Visitors, Warren Vinson Pierce, III. 2015 University of Vermont

Managing The Wilderness Experience At Olympic National Park: A Study Of Day And Overnight Visitors, Warren Vinson Pierce, Iii.

Graduate College Dissertations and Theses

As the United States becomes increasingly urbanized, the importance of federally designated wilderness areas as places of reflection and refuge from city life becomes even more apparent. These wilderness areas provide visitors with opportunities for solitude, recreation, and connecting with nature. Wilderness has long been important to American society, influencing the likes of John Muir, Theodore Roosevelt, and Henry David Thoreau. With the passage of the Wilderness Act of 1964, the assurance that these areas would remain protected in perpetuity for the enjoyment of the American people was enshrined into law. While these wilderness areas remain protected by Federal law ...

The Effects Of Lighting Temperature And Complexity On Hotel Guests' Perceived Servicescape, Perceived Value, And Behavioral Intentions, Jing Yang

Life Cycle Assessment (Lca) Of Tourism Activities, Kayla Santello 2015 University of New Hampshire

Life Cycle Assessment (Lca) Of Tourism Activities, Kayla Santello

Honors Theses and Capstones

Abstract— Tourism, like other developed industries is a commerce that requires energy inputs and yields outputs with significant effects on the environment. However a comprehensive study examining the life cycle impact associated with each tourism component including transportation, accommodation, food services, and recreation is still lacking. Therefore a search of previous tourism life cycle studies was carried out and ten studies were further investigated. Indicators, assessment approaches, and system boundaries of these previous studies were assessed. Then the outcomes were normalized and compared in order to obtain ranges for the four components of tourism. It was found that energy intensity ...


The Evolution Of Joint Management In Western Australia Parks And The Indigenous Tourism Nexus, Lori-Ann Shibish 2015 Edith Cowan University

The Evolution Of Joint Management In Western Australia Parks And The Indigenous Tourism Nexus, Lori-Ann Shibish

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

Since the early 2000s, park management approaches to protected area governance have undergone a significant transformation, driven by the realisation that long-term conservation outcomes depend on participation in decision-making by stakeholders. To meet these challenges one of the measures being adopted by park managers is to engage in joint management arrangements. Recent changes to the conservation legislation in Western Australia provides the capacity for the Department of Parks and Wildlife (Parks and Wildlife) to enter into joint management arrangements with Aboriginal traditional owners and others for the management of protected areas, regardless of the land vesting or tenure. Joint management ...


K-Pop Or K-Death? The Mirrored Oppression From Hollywood In The 1930s, Molly Welsh 2014 Chapman University

K-Pop Or K-Death? The Mirrored Oppression From Hollywood In The 1930s, Molly Welsh

Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

In the 1930s, the film industry in Hollywood set the standard of “Hollywood filmmaking” with its development of star-contracts so oppressive, actors would be trapped for years within them. However, the implications of creating such a star-system have far surpassed what William Hays believed he was doing in the 1930s. In South Korea, a big star-system still exists and in many ways, mirrors what the United States did in the 1930s. What is informally known as “K-Pop” is a label for the music industry that seeks to emulate western ideals not only in looks, but in practice. This system allows ...
