Staff are invited to attend the Inaugural Marketing Sustainability Conference on Tuesday 20 December 2016 at the University of Huddersfield Business School.

The event is sponsored by the University of Huddersfield Researcher Development Fund and the Academy of Marketing Business-to-Business Special Interest Group.

Our esteemed Speakers are Professor Ken Peattie, Joe Jones from SustainIT, Professor Merlin Stone, Dr Morven McEachern and Dr Kaouther Kooli (Chair of the AM B2B SIG).

Sustainability is becoming a key issue for many areas of business as regulatory and consumer demands are forcing companies to rethink their approach to business. Developing more sustainable marketing strategies are presenting novel challenges to marketers and involves targeted activities, such as the researching of customer needs, preferences and expectations and the analysis of an organisation’s ability to meet those expectations compared to its rivals. It can also require new types of information on stakeholder attitudes to sustainability issues relevant to the sourcing, production, use or disposal of products.

This event is free and open to all including external and internal PhD students and staff. The event aims to harness the exchange of knowledge, discussions and sharing of ideas and generally, promoting the important study of marketing sustainability with experts from the academia and practitioner worlds.
