EMAC Regional Conference
The history of the EMAC Regional Conference begins in 2007 at the University of Maribor (Slovenia) where researchers from this region, dealing with market development issues, decided to launch a conference entitled Marketing Theory Challenges in Transition Societies (MTC). The MTC conferences were hosted in two consecutive years by the University of Zagreb, Croatia (2008) and again by the University of Maribor, Slovenia (2009).
In 2010 the MTC conference was embraced by the European Academy of Marketing and since then has continued with support of EMAC under a new title – EMAC Regional Conference. Marketing Theory Challenges in Emerging Markets.
The first EMAC Regional Conference was hosted by Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary (2010). Subsequent conferences were organized by Alexandru Ioan Cuza University in Iasi, Romania (2011), the University of Belgrade, Serbia (2012), the Graduate School of Management, St. Petersburg University, Russia (2013), the University of Economics in Katowice, Poland (2014), the Vienna University of Economics and Business, Austria (2015),the University of Sarajevo (2016) and the West University of Timisoara, Roumania in 2017.
