University of Las Vegas and Scent Marketing Institute Announce Collaboration
In his opening address at SCENTworld 2009, Harald H. Vogt, Founder of the Scent Marketing Institute in New York, announced that his organization has reached a close cooperation agreement with UNLV.
Vogt will join the task force investigating the establishment of UNLV's Experience Management Institute headed by Dr. Kathryn LaTour, Associate Professor of Hospitality Marketing. Dr. LaTour, the opening keynote speaker at SCENTworld, will identify the research priorities based on suggestions from the Board.
UNLV will take a prominent role in the development and delivery of the Scent Marketing Institute's upcoming certification program, a way for professionals from the marketing and branding community to obtain critical knowledge in the field of multisensory marketing.
"We are excited about the opportunities for our organization and the Scent Marketing Industry as a whole. This collaboration will lend us additional credibility and lets us further solidify our global leadership role," says Vogt.
According to Dean Stuart Mann, UNLV is about to break ground for an on-campus hotel and entertainment complex that will serve as a testing facility for all aspects of a multisensory approach including architecture, the fine arts and entertainment. In addition, all of UNLV's current and new initiatives will be mirrored on the International Campus in Singapore which opened in the Fall of 2006.
