The International Consumer Brand Relationship™ Conference is the world's leading networking & educational event in the field of marketing. Since the first conference in 2010, it brings together researchers and practitioners with an interest in the relationships consumers have with brands.
This international conference brings together researchers and practitioners with an interest in the relationship consumers have with brands. We invite full papers, work in progress or case studies which have as a focal point the consumer and the relationship to products, companies, stores, celebrities, or countries brands among others.
