Case Study See below.
Assessment instructions You, an Experience Economy specialist, have been contracted by L’Occitane en Provence, the famous French skincare product company, to design an ongoing experience to promote their new product -Cap Cedrat-, a Mediterranean ocean-inspired range, by creating an ongoing immersive hospitality experience over the summer months, in the tourist destination of Nice, France to help promote their products.
You are to create an Experience Proposal to L’Occitance’s marketing department, by completing the 4 case study questions below.
1. Complete a critical analysis on the Experience Economy related to a similar product launch/promotion that has been promoted including a promotional experience that customers attended within the last two years ie. 2021-2023 (can be anywhere in the world). Include subject theory models of Servicescape dimensions, the 4 realms of the Experience Economy, 5 Senses, & Sense of Place. 2. Analysis of the customer experience: the potential target market. Create a customer demographic profile for each of the below:
a) the potential type customer of the product to be promoted
b) the potential type customer of a hospitality experience
c) the potential type of customer/visitor at/to the destination
3. Assess 2 similar brand launches or unique leisure / hospitality / retail experiences that have been delivered in the Nice destination.
4. Design in detail, an experience to promote L’Occitane en Provence -Cap Cedrat- products at a hospitality venue or event space of your choosing in Nice, France:
• Justify your choice of venue.
• Explain your experience design concept.
• Justify your experience design by applying it to the models of Servicescape dimensions, the 4 realms of the Experience Economy, 5 senses, & Sense of Place.
• Justify how your service experience over a summer will:
a) optimise branding & monetising via sales / exposure for the destination/venue
b) optimise / monetise branding / sales for the company who have contracted you
c) satisfy the experience expectations of the target customer demographic/s
This hospitality experience service cannot be for just one day – it is to be continuous ie. the designed experience will be offered on a daily/weekly basis throughout a whole summer, so that this service & branding can be monetised mid-long term, for the 3 primary stakeholders: L’Occitane en Provence, the partnering hospitality venue (which you will choose), & the destination.
(There is an event / experience brief template in the Assessment Section which may be used to help formulate the detail of this case study question 4)
The content in the below resource links provide context to inform you of the history and general overview of the product, and the Sense of Place related
to this brand. From this, and your own independent research, compile a case study and show evidence of your own unique design experience.
*Being a case study and design proposal – the format is not to be essay style answers. Use subheadings, tables, diagrams etc., to focus your content, in a professional format, as if you were presenting this to the marketing department who have hired you. Pretend that this is a real-life experience product that you are planning to design.
