Thank you for a great conference!
We’ll see you in Nashville, TN for the 2023 AMA Winter Academic Conference, February 9-12!
2023 AMA Winter Academic Conference: Marketing During Times of Change
We live in times of extraordinary change, warranting firms, consumers and communities to not only adapt but also participate as change-makers. On a social front, there is an increase in activism to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in multiple sectors. On a technological front, advances in automation and artificial intelligence are transforming how firms innovate and engage consumers. On a public welfare front, the pandemic has exacerbated inequalities in income, education and health yet has also led to many innovative business solutions. On a political front, polarization has increased the salience of consumers’ political identities and put firms’ political stances at the forefront. This conference invites work that sheds light on how firms, consumers, policymakers and other stakeholders interact, adapt, and even thrive during these times of tremendous change.
Paper submissions are due August 22, 2022.
Reconnecting and Reconceiving the Marketplace
How will consumer behavior change in a post-pandemic world? Will entertainment, information and experiences be consumed in the same spaces and places? Are online and offline channels being fundamentally reshaped? What lasting, institutional changes in the marketplace will remain and which will fade?
The 2022 AMA Winter Academic Conference seeks to explore these and the full range of new ideas and insights across 14 distinct conference tracks.
