Session

P13 Emerging economic spaces, industries and trends

Organizers:

These sessions will focus on new and emerging economic spaces, industries, and trends. The space economy is constantly changing with the result that new industrial sectors/industries are emerging, new economic trends are appearing, and places which were previously relatively unimportant to the space economy are emerging and playing an increasingly important role. The purpose of these sessions is to identify some of the more interesting and potentially impactful changes that are occurring with respect to new industries, economic trends, and emerging space economies. These changes can and do occur at a variety of geographic scales from neighborhood to international and the geography of their impacts can be equally wide-ranging. A special session can be dedicated to the changes in postsocialist economies and economic spaces.
