MICA's third annual ICMC conference ignited scholars' thoughts on the theme of 'Marketing Reborn: Traditions, Trends and Techniques'. This conference offered a broad range of topics on traditions, trends and techniques of marketing through 15 inter-disciplinary sub-tracks. Marketing, in the last few decades has seen a strong growth in technological advancements such as mobile telephony, internet resources, the rise of social media and multi-media messages, and competition that is leading to empowered consumers and significant branding. Hence, this conference, provided a platform to look at Marketing as a discipline and to analyse the age old philosophies, future trends and the techniques relevant today.
The keynote address was delivered by Prof. A. Parasuraman who is a Professor and Holder of the James W. McLamore Chair in Marketing (endowed by the Burger King Corporation) and Director of PhD Programs at the School of Business, University of Miami.
