The event will take place on June 14th, 9-11 am. RIT Croatia is hosting this event at the Dubrovnik campus, and Zagreb campus will be connected from the meeting room.
In this session, Professors Chartrand, Fitzsimons and Platt will present three perspectives on the emerging field of connecting with others in consumption settings. Professor Chartrand will talk about the role brand compatibility (when your brand preferences either do or do not match your romantic partner’s) plays in our lives. Professor Fitzsimons will discuss how we at times use brand choice as a way to express frustration at our romantic partner’s, even without their knowledge. Finally, Professor Platt will discuss the neuroscience underlying social connection and its implications in business settings.
