The Global Brand Conference (GBC) of the Academy of Marketing’s ‘Brand Identity and Corporate Reputation’ Special Interest Group, has developed a reputation for being one of the world’s leading academic conferences on branding in the last fifteen years. The world’s top branding experts come together at this event to debate and develop the state-of-play in branding theory and application.

Branding in the Digital Age: Innovation and Responsibility 

The 13th Global Brand Conference will focus on the dual challenge for brands in the digital age:

  • In what innovative ways can brands (and their identities) be managedin a digital world, where the conversation surrounding them is mainly not created, or indeed controlled, by the brand-owner?
  • What particular responsibilities does a successful brand face in the digital world, and how important are these for maintaining a good reputation?

Papers focusing on a broad range of other topics in Branding, Corporate Identity, and Corporate Reputation are also welcome. The Deadline for submissions is 3 November 2017. Submission details to follow soon.

Conference Chair: Dr Vignesh Yoganathan, Northumbria University

Co-Chair: Professor Fraser McLeay, University of Sheffield
