Expansión a nuevos mercados de parques temáticos el … DE1-225
In 2005, Ferrari signed an agreement to build the first Ferrari-inspired theme park in the world. The park was built on Das Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Hence, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the first theme park entirely devoted to the legendary carmaker Ferrari, came to existence. The success of the park attracted new players who requested licenses from Ferrari to open new parks. In response to this demand, Luca Fuso, the head of Ferrari Brand, must make decisions:
- Should Ferrari sell any licenses or simply only allow Ferrari World Abu Dhabi to exist?
- If new Ferrari parks do open, should they be located in developing or developed countries/regions?
- How do the answers to the above questions affect Ferrari’s long-standing view that the demand for Ferrari products should never be fully satisfied?
