Abstract [en]

This paper deals with how a company in the experience industry is using a new way to communicate with their customers and how that communication can affect the image of the company's brand. Furthermore, the paper addresses how storytelling and community is created and can be used to improve the communication with customers and with the new communication medium. The selected firm for the paper is ferry company Viking Line. Year 2008 was the collaboration with Channel 5 that they could make a TV series depicting life on board the Viking Line's cruise ship M / S Cinderella.
