The West University of Timisoara and EMAC invite electronic submission of papers for the 8th EMAC Regional Conference scheduled on September 20-22, 2017 in Timisoara, Romania.
The theme of the EMAC 8th Regional Conference is Bridging the Marketing/Theory Gap and the Competitiveness of New Europe
As marketing environment is changing due to the new technologies, more demanding, connected and empowered customers, new unconventional competitors, and new emerging markets, the companies from the CEE countries need to be well prepared to face these challenges and to survive. It becomes necessary to deepen our understanding of the market success and failure of the companies from the CEE countries, in order to improve communication between academics and practitioners related to the relevant research theme for marketing practice, and to effectively manage the individual and organizational learning process in marketing.
The theme of the 8th EMAC Regional Conference is focused upon the ways of bridging marketing theory/practice gap in CEE countries to enhance competitiveness of the firms. We invite marketing scholars from Europe and abroad to submit papers on marketing theory, strategic marketing, marketing research, consumer behaviour, product and brand management, channel and sales management, marketing communications, marketing organization, business-to-business marketing, services marketing, digital marketing, international and cross-cultural marketing, social marketing and corporate social responsibility.
All submissions are due in PDF format and should be done online via the Conference Website no later than April 24, 2017 15:00 CET Time
Please make sure to read carefully the submission guidelines before submitting your paper. A full set of guidelines can be found on the conference website under the Paper submission section.
