Power D. A response to Scott, Regional Studies. This paper deals with two main issues. First, it addresses the issue of how we tackle the status of the creative city discourse and how we should understand and react to policy in third-wave cities. Second, it discusses the issue of where we see the lines of stratification and division between people and workers in third-wave cities. This paper responds to some of the suggestions contained in the article by Allen J. Scott in this issue.

Abstract [en]

This paper treats the concept of ‘field-configuring events’ (FCE) and relates it to economic geographical research. The FCE approach attempts to draw attention to the role of events in fields of economic and social action and suggests that events can be important to introducing, structuring, maintaining and configuring new products, industrial standards, cultural artefacts and knowledge categories. The FCE approach has primarily been used to study the actors and networks associated with events such as trade shows, professional gatherings, technology contests, cultural tournaments, industrial exhibitions and business ceremonies: events where actors assemble to reveal novel prod- ucts, develop industry designs, initiate cultural trends, create social networks, and allocate meaning to previously unfamiliar circumstances. In this introductory paper, we identify the main research tra- jectories in FCE and link these to economic geography by identifying some common lines of thinking apparent in economic geography, management and organisational studies. The paper moves on to investigate the nature of the “field”, “configuration” and “events” from a geographic perspective, and to emphasize the role that space and power play as a structuring mechanisms in all three. We conclude that the FCE approach can function as a useful tool for geographical analysis of the increasing fluid and episodic contours of the contemporary space economy.

Abstract [en]

Traditionally, both the business and research worlds have posited direct links between products and place: Hollywood films, Paris fashion, and Swiss watches. It has been thought that regional and industrial success can at least partly be explained by mutually reinforcing effects: a locally embedded industry adds to the brand and vice versa. In this chapter, we argue that this view does not fully explain the 'origins' of products nor does it explain fully how origins embed a place. We explore the notion that the 'origins' of products can be considered to be 'collective brands' with considerable power. As such, they are built up in a dialectical relationship between product industries and their places. Understandings of the connections between products and places could benefit from thinking about the role and geographies of 'brand channels' (Jansson and Power 2010) in which brands are constantly worked on. These brand channels are the spaces and conduits for the messages and various iterations that brands rest upon. However, just because the brand is about one place does not mean that the channels are constructed and transmitted locally. Rather, we argue that it is important to think of brand channels as being rooted in a relational space where brands are constantly reworked and renewed in global circuits (Sassen 2002).

Abstract [en]

his paper addresses the role of quality, difference and differentiation in the value both producers and consumers attach to products and firms. It is argued that analysis of urban andregional competitiveness needs to be complemented by a renewed focus on the vital role thatquality plays in competitiveness as well as an understanding of geographies of product differenceand differentiation. Debates on economic development and resilience need to focus on innovation but also on how through making and providing quality goods and services - that may be based on the latest technologies or equally on age-old craft traditions - firms secure and develop competitive strengths. But since quality is always a value co-constructed in a negotiation between the consumer and producer, processes of identification and differentiation are formative. A case study of two developments in winter sport equipment is used to exemplify an industry in whichquality is both an entry condition as well as a major factor in differentiation and valuation. The case illustrates the roles of producer-led innovation and user-led innovation in equipment innovation; and that the appreciation of products' quality, value and differentiation rests in interactions between producers, intermediaries and led-users in localized and regional settings. Focusing on the geographies of quality and differentiation is suggested to be important not only for firms but also for urban and regional policy. Regional advantage may partly rest upon how actors come together to co-construct notions of quality and difference: notions that can have lasting effects on regional competitiveness.

Abstract [en]

• In 2009, creative and cultural industries fi rms employed a total of 6.4 million persons in 30 European countries.

• Regions with high concentrations of creative and cultural industries have Europe’s highest prosperity levels.

• Large urban areas and capital city regions dominate the creative and cultural industries, but some city regionsdo better than others. The super clusters London and Paris stand out, followed by Milan, Madrid, Barcelonaand Rome.

• The creative and cultural industries are signifi cant generators of intellectual property, in particular copyrights.Regions strong in these industries also tend to have higher levels of patenting.

• Among the regions of Europe which rank among the top 25 either by population or CCI employment thefollowing cities host an over-representation of the creative and cultural sector: Amsterdam (Noord-Holland),Berlin, Frankfurt (Darmstadt), Brighton (Surrey, E and W Sussex), Budapest (Kozep-Magyarorszag), The Hague(Zuid-Holland), Lisbon, Inner London, Oxford (Berks, Bucks and Oxon), and Stockholm.

• As a share of the regional labour market, creative and cultural industries account for the largest shares inStockholm, Prague, London and Rome.

• Most of the regions in the top 25 highest cultural and creative growth regions are small and medium sizedregions.

• The highest annual employment growth rates in the period 2003/4-2008/9 are found in Cyprus 25.79%,Slovakia 25.60%, Estonia 11.48%, Latvia 9.78%

• Creative and cultural industries manufacturing and production activities are the most regionally concentrated,and consumer oriented activities such as retail the least regionally concentrated.

• Further statistical work is needed to measure the true size of the creative and cultural industries. The dataused in this report covers employees but not sole traders (i.e. fi rms with no employees but one active owner)or freelancers.
