Atmosphere is an important factor in how a visitor experiences a space or environment. To establish the importance of the atmosphere factor, a good measuring instrument is required. This study offers a proposal for such a measuring instrument. For this purpose, a meta-analysis was carried out on existing empirical and theoretical studies on atmosph...

The sheer variety and number of the different festivities and events raises the question whether these events can actually be divided into different categories so we can better clarify their nature. The answer to this question can help us to be more precise when evaluating the relevance of a statement in a book or article on events. For example, if...

Why do people go to festivals? That is an important question. The answer enables event organizers to tailor their festivals to what visitors want and expect. This increases the likelihood that visitors will enjoy the festival, give the festival a positive rating, talk about it in positive terms with others and possibly attend the festival again....

General numbers on the size of the Dutch festival sector and on more specific features such as the rise or fall of the number of festivals over the years remain just that: general numbers. While these figures can provide some insights, they can also work to suggest the sector is a homogenous whole that can be summarised in a few easy facts and figu...

A space’s atmosphere is an important factor in how that space is experienced. The importance of atmosphere inspired the search for ways to influence visitors and allowing them to react to, and even (co-)design, a space’s atmosphere. Researchers have been studying the influence of atmosphere for decades, particularly through the lens of environmenta...

Researchers have been studying the influence of atmosphere for decades, particularly through the lens of environmental psychology, which focuses on the interplay between humans and their environment. A milestone in atmosphere research was the introduction of the concept of ‘atmospherics’ by Kotler (1973). From here, research into atmosphere mainly...

The propagandization of a Net Generation adds nothing to our understanding of the digital behaviour of young people.

Although the increase of knowledge as an 'asset' in products and services offers new challenges and opportunities, it also throws up new barriers. One such barrier, the lack of access to knowledge, is analysed as consisting of several processes with different key factors that obstruct or stimulate those processes. Furthermore, different levels of a...

Television is once again being ‘expanded’ with new devices and services: after colour screens, the remote control, the VCR, and digital transmitted signals and receivers (set-top boxes), the next wave of improvements go by the name of enhanced TV, interactive TV and personal TV.

These devices lie at the heart of convergence of the triad: commu...

In 'De tentoonstellingsmaker van de 21ste Eeuw' (2017-2019) is onderzoek gedaan naar de manier waarop tentoonstellingsmakers bezoekers proberen te raken, inspireren en hen iets te leren. Tentoonstellingsmakers hebben namelijk aangegeven meer gevalideerde kennis nodig te hebben om goede afwegingen te kunnen maken in het creëren van de bezoekersbeleving en om de feitelijke bezoekersbeleving te kunnen evalueren. Samen met diverse musea én bureaus is onderzoek gedaan om 1) meer kennis te vergaren over hoe men kan sturen op de bezoekersbeleving en 2) een methodiek te ontwikkelen die gebruikt kan worden door andere onderzoekers en erfgoedinstellingen zelf.
