to define the concept of leisure time has become the starting point for analyses
of this phenomenon in the context of the contemporary consumer market
management and accompanying social and cultural conditions. Spare time studies include,
among others indicating new areas of activities, work and leisure relations,
analysis of places to spend free time, or innovative products design.
We aim to
provide an opportunity for an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas between
psychologists, sociologists, economists, practitioners and market researchers. As part of the three panels of the conference,
we would like to analyse the experience of free time and leisure time from
We offer to participants the following topic areas:
1. Leisure time:
a modern laboratory of consumer experiences. We will ask questions relating to the
concepts of ‘free time experience’ and ‘experiences in leisure time’. We will
look at an active role of ‘influencers’ in creating patterns of consumer ehavior.
We will also discuss ways to measure experiences related to leisure time and
the applicability of such research for various markets. Is it still justified
to divide the market into time-saving and time-consuming goods and services?
worlds: a cyber-consumer of free time. Immersion in a virtual dimension of leisure
time: gaming, VoD, music and events
streaming, virtual museums; active participants and the audience. What to
measure and how to use commercially the leisure experience of consumers in the
virtual world. Is the traditional model of communication (including marketing) becoming
a matter of the past? Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR) versus
experiences in leisure time.
time: the realms of recreational and tourist experiences. We will ask questions
about the contemporary face of tourism with its innovative and creative elements.
We will consider if there exists a phenomenon of the ‘imperative to relax’
today. We will address the problem of controversial behavior of tourists and
their role in shaping the modern market offer.
