It also offers insights for understanding the phenomenological uniqueness of various places and the role of place users and other stakeholders in the creation of place marketing and branding value.Originality valueThe paper elaborates upon the potential usefulness of spatial taste formation for place management and marketing research practice and draws out implications for future research.
