25. ICRM - International Colloquium on Relationship Marketing
September 12-15, 2017 | Munich, Germany
Please note that we offer an experience day on September 15.
The 25th International Colloquium on Relationship Marketing will be hosted by the Institute for Marketing (Univ.-Prof. Anton Meyer) and the Munich School of Management at LMU Munich.
The Colloquium was originally conceived as an on-going forum for creating new knowledge and circulating viewpoints which challenge established marketing management theory and practices. David Ballantyne, the first convenor, had the vision of a Colloquium which went beyond the bounds of a small and friendly conference to one which would expand and sustain a community of researchers, allow sufficient time for dialogue among those researchers, and provide access to academic journals for publishing the Colloquia papers. Networks and dialogue remain essential elements of the Colloquium. In line with its history as an ongoing forum for creating new knowledge and a venue for challenging existing marketing theory and practices, the 25th ICRM in Munich in September 2017 seeks to move relationship marketing forward and stimulate debate between academics and marketing professionals.
