Abstract

City branding is a very interesting topic for scholars also policymakers. As cities seek to attract tourism, as well as investment and other purposes to be able to compete globally, brand strategy concepts are widely adopted from commercial domains by cities for regional development and quality of life improvement. This paper aims to provide a very different perspective on city branding theory. It is intended to connect the basic concept of place branding (country/city/destination), the purpose and benefits of city branding with the application of its application in various cities in the world including the process, obstacles and challenges as well as policy recommendations from the results of empirical studies presented in the form of cases. Large databases were selected to search for published articles related to urban tourism. Thereafter, the retrieved articles were categorized and analyzed. This paper highlights several main topics in the literature of city branding. Majority research published on city branding comes from marketing and urban studies fields. Instead of interdisciplinary fields, these two disciplines tend to parallel each other. The linkage of this conceptual framework will be a theoretical basis for understanding the implementation of city branding as well as providing recommendations for the development of cities through marketing tourism in the future.
