ABOUT THE CONFERENCE SERIES

This is our 12th annual conference which provides a venue for scholarly interactions among academics, researchers, students, and representatives from industry and government. The annual theme is the economic, social, political, cultural and technological environments in which today’s businesses operate.

Annually, our conference is attended by 60 to 120 participants who represent up to 20 universities in up to 12 countries and territories.  Our conference has been successful in that more than 50% of participants are repeat participants, i.e., they participated in at least one of our past conferences.  Participants’ post-conference feedback in our last three (3) conferences show more than 90% rating our conference as “excellent” or “very good”.
