The China Marketing Management Research Center of South China University of Technology, China and the Unit for Chinese Management Development of City University of Hong Kong invite papers for their first conference on the captioned theme. The Asian Pacific region has entered into an era of transformation from original equipment manufacturing (OEM) to original strategic manufacturing (OSM). Most government officials, researchers and business practitioners believe that this rising trend will continue in the coming years. To successfully accelerate the transformation, the elevation of marketing innovation and modern strategic management seems essential. It is believed that management phenomena and marketing practices evolved from diversified countries can provide existing and proven insights to develop management and marketing theories on one hand and to deepen economic development and enhance international competitiveness on the other.
As such, this conference is therefore devoted to provide a platform for government officials, scholars, and business practitioners to share their experiences and research interests related to the new emerging theme. China is the right place to reflect on this issue as it has recently made rapid changes in business regulations and economic policies. Specifically, issue related to the broad theme of the conference include, but are not restricted to the following:
- Are there any unique theories in transforming from OEM to OSM in terms of marketing innovation and strategic management?
- How does Internet development affect global marketing and international manufacturing environment?
- What are the roles of service marketing in assisting the transformation from OEM to OSM?
- Research findings on the effect of marketing innovation on manufacturing transformation in Pearl Delta, Yangtze River Delta, Hong Kong and Taiwan?
- What are the theories that can be borrowed from developed countries in transforming from OEM to OBM and OSM?
- How can manufacturing industries adapt to the transformation in their development? What are the strategies?
- How do manufacturing industries develop and adopt marketing innovations in various stages of their transformation, if any?
The conference will consist of keynote speeches from government officials, well-known professors from U.S. and U.K., panel discussions, symposium and competitive paper sessions. Special sessions in Putonghua will also be conducted.
