Place Brand identity. Place Branding: A New Pragmatic Identity

Place branding is a global phenomenon that has embraced the most diverse countries and cities of the world. Territorial branding, the current form of which was formed in the late 1990s, has become a real mainstream in the field of territorial development and management, as well as the market for knowledge-based services, which allows us to speak of it not only as a temporary fashion, but also as a long-term and developing communication system. The ongoing changes in the field of mass communications and culture are forcing us to seriously rethink the meaning of territory branding and to conduct a detailed analysis of the trends and design approaches that exist in it.
