City branding is a contemporary issue which is getting more important continuously as the competition between cities is growing. It helps to make a place desirable as a business location, tourist destination or a place to live. As Kavaratzis states, “The beginning lies in the realization that all encounters with the city take place through perceptions and images”. According to Charles Wrench, “anything for which you can construct a mental inventory is a brand”. People connect brands of cities with certain historical aspects. Over time, cities have developed their unique reputation and converted more and more into own brands, due to globalization. City branding is comparable with product branding, where products and services with a strong brand can be sold easier, attracting people and investment compared to the poor branded. While some cities have prospered over the years, others have suffered. Furthermore every city has to compete against other city for its share of the world’s consumers, tourists, businesses, investment, talents, respect and attention on the international level. The objectives of this assignment is to examine how to brand a city properly and to understand the essential steps for implementing a significant brand strategy. For a better understanding of the approach, an anonymous online primary research was done in December 2013, to reflect and explain individual methods. The questions from this result can be founded in the appendix. Additionally one successful branded and one less successful branded city will be discussed.

Since the 1990s, city branding has become a key factor in urban development policies. Cities all over the world take specific actions to manipulate the imagery and the perceptions of places, both in the eyes of the inhabitants and in those of potential tourists, investors, users and consumers. City Branding: The Ghostly Politics of Representation in Globalising Cities explores different sides of place branding policies. The construction and the manipulation of urban images triggers a complex politics of representation, modifying the visibility and the invisibility of spaces, subjects, problems and discourses. In this sense, urban branding is not an innocent tool; this book aims to investigate and reflect on the ideas of urban life, the political unconscious, the affective geographies and the imaginaries of power constructed and reproduced through urban branding. This book situates city branding within different geographical contexts and ‘ordinary’ cities, demonstrated through a number of international case studies. In order to map and contextualise the variety of urban imaginaries involved, author Alberto Vanolo incorporates conceptual tools from cultural studies and the embrace of an explicitly post-colonial perspective. This critical analysis of current place branding strategy is an essential reference for the study of city marketing.

Globalization affects urban communities in many ways. One of its manifestations is increased intercity competition, which compels cities to increase their attractiveness in terms of capital, entrepreneurship, information, expertise and consumption. This competition takes place in an asymmetric field, with cities trying to find the best possible ways of using their natural and created assets, the latter including a naturally evolving reputation or consciously developed competitive identity or brand. The Political Economy of City Branding discusses this phenomenon from the perspective of numerous post-industrial cities in North America, Europe, East Asia and Australasia. Special attention is given to local economic development policy and industrial profiling, and global city rankings are used to provide empirical evidence for cities’ characteristics and positions in the global urban hierarchy. On top of this, social and urban challenges such as creative class struggle are also discussed. The core message of the book is that cities should apply the tools of city branding in their industrial promotion and specialization, but at the same time take into account the special nature of their urban communities and be open and inclusive in their brand policies in order to ensure optimal results. This book will be of interest to scholars and practitioners working in the areas of local economic development, urban planning, public management, and branding.
