ABOUT IBC

Everything you need to know

The International Business Conference (IBC) has three main goals, namely:

 

  1. To provide an international platform for the presentation, discussion, and debate of different academic and professional approaches and research on recent developments in an ever-turbulent business and political arena.
  2. To provide the opportunity for academics, practitioners, and post-graduate students to have their work validated and benchmarked within the benevolent academic and professional community.
  3. To create a pleasant and enjoyable environment to serve the first two goals where delegates can also relax, get to know their fellow academia informally, and truly build their networks.

CONFERENCE ACCREDITATION

 

All the previous IBC conferences, including the 2021 conference held virtually, have met the criteria for subsidy set by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). At present, the 2022 conference held at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West is undergoing a rigorous process to qualify for a subsidy. (We positively await the outcome; however, take note that this usually is a two-year process at DHET.)
