Volkov, Michael and Johnson Morgan, Melissa and Summers, Jane (2007) Consumer construction of sport consumption experiences through role play: a literature review. In: 4th Annual Sport Marketing Association Conference: Sport Marketing Across the Spectrum: Research from Emerging, Developing and Established Sholars (SMA 2006), 4-6 Nov 2006, Denver, Colorado.

Abstract

Evidence exists in the literature that many traditional consumer behaviours have fundamentally different meanings when considered in an experiential context. This paper posits that voicing during the experiential consumption of sport may in fact be a factor of experiential consumption rather than an expression of dissatisfaction as in the traditional complaint behaviour model. This is significant in the interpretation of experiential sport consumption where vocalising appears to serve purposes other than complaining. This paper revises the traditional complaint behaviour literature for explanations about vocalising and then offers some alternate conceptual propositions using experiential consumption literature.
