Simply Desirable, Preferably Complex: Feature-Richness in Experiential Purchases

This research investigates the impact of features on consumers’ attitudes towards experiences at both pre-consumption and post-consumption stages. We find that although consumers prefer feature-poor to feature-rich experiences prior-to-consumption, they prefer feature-rich experiences post-consumption (the opposite of “feature fatigue”). Additionally, the authors suggest several moderators of this phenomenon.
