In 1999, Pine, a global leader in the Experience Economy, and his partner James H. Gilmore wrote the bestseller The Experience Economy: Work is a Theatre & Every Business a Stage, which claims goods and services are no longer enough; today, companies must offer experience—memorable events that engage each customer in an inherently personal way. In 2019, an updated version of The Experience Economy was published, subtitled Competing for Customer Time, Attention, and Money.
