The International Business Conference (IBC) has three main goals, namely:
International platform for business scholars and practitioners

To provide an international platform for the presentation, discussion and debate of multidisciplinary academic and professional approaches and research on contemporary developments in an ever-turbulent business environment.

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.

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.
