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

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.

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

Leadership In Collegiate Soccer, Jack Mccann, Thomas Kohntopp, Power Home Remodeling Group

School of Management Publications

One of the most significant athletic and social changes in the United States over the past two decades has been the growing popularity of soccer. Since the mid-1990s, soccer popularity has exploded, fueled by the emergence and growth of Major League Soccer (MLS) (Saporito, 2010). Though soccer is the world’s most popular sport in terms of attendance, U.S. soccer matches have modest attendance; however, this may be changing. Soccer popularity has increased through participation and media coverage while becoming integrated into the U.S. culture (Saporito, 2010). This research examined an extremely important aspect of the sport . . . the ...

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 ...

With the abundance of games that enter the App Store marketplace, developers struggle to compete for the user’s attention and potential download.

These factors have contributed to the freemium business model becoming the face of the mobile gaming industry.
