The 29th annual meeting of CIMAR will offer a fantastic experience. You will be exposed to the unique economic and business landscape of this Nordic region, and learn about the progress Norway has made towards a sustainable economy over the recent years. Participants will enjoy breathtaking scenery of a Northern destination, and possibly take advantage of enjoying a remarkable cruise along the coastline of Northern Norway at the tail end of the conference. 

CIMaR has served as an informal and effective networking community for international marketing scholars, and new participants are always welcome. Participants originate from over 20 countries and include doctoral students. For nearly three decades, CIMaR has provided an excellent platform for both established and junior scholars to exchange ideas and form lasting research collaborations. Sessions are organized for both completed research and new project proposals that are under development.
