This month’s Bulletin features two articles on place branding, the first calls on us to rethink the place brand whilst the second questions the place branding approach in US Rust Belt cities. The articles come as a new International Place Branding Association is launched. Also launched this month is the new Institute of Place Management Student Society. This aims to bring together students from many disciplines interested in the study of place. If you are currently a student then you will want to follow the link to the facebook group and you may want to share your thoughts with us via email (details below).

This month’s Bulletin includes news of a new Issue of the Journal of Place Management and Development providing more insight into the challenges presented in delivering effective place management. The articles are available free to IPM Members. We are also pleased to report that the Journal has entered the top quartile in three research areas in a leading international ranking. If you want to know more the issues and challenges involved in effective place management, place marketing or place branding, then there is still time to register for one of our three Masterclasses being held in Manchester at the beginning of October.

If you want to develop your skills and knowledge in or share experience with others engaged in place management, then we have some great opportunities in this month’s Bulletin. The Institute is offering two new services. Firstly we can come to your town or city centre and deliver a workshop for your stakeholders that looks at how to make your centre sustainable (we are only offering this in the UK for now but we are happy to talk about going elsewhere). Secondly we have just announced our first study tour which will visit the exciting city of Berlin in June 2016. As a participant you have the opportunity to examine at first hand a number of innovative place management initiatives as well as seeing how the city is changing. In contrast to these new initiatives, this is almost the final opportunity to register for the three October Masterclasses in Place Management, Place Marketing and Place Branding and for registration on the next intake of the MSc in Place Management. We would love to have you attend and I know from personal experience, having completed the MSc a few years ago, that it is an exciting and stimulating programme to participate in. It is designed to work with your job and you can use the course to explore issues associated with work which gives a new perspective. Continue reading “IPM Bulletin archive – September 2015”

Once again we are providing a round-up of recent articles that have struck us relating to place management that we think you will find interesting. This month we are covering two perspectives on city brand fundamentals, looking at how a global city ranking is seeking to include intangible indicators and getting an insight into the nearly always thorny issue for place management practitioners of car parking provision. We also are including some updates on issues nearer to home for the Institute of Place Management including a reminder about our forthcoming conference which you can now book for (see www.placemanagement2015.pl) Continue reading “IPM Bulletin archive – February 2015”
