2022 IBC

The 2022 IBC conference will be hosted at the beautiful Lord Charles Hotel from 25 to 28 September 2022. The hotel is located just 25 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and is one of the most established properties in the Cape Winelands.

AIM OF THE CONFERENCE

The 15th IBC 2022 conference has three main goals. The first goal is 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 environment. The second goal is 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. The final goal is 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 2019 conference held at Arabella in Hermanus, have met the criteria for subsidy set by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). At present, the 2021 online conference is undergoing the rigorous process to qualify for a subsidy. (We positively await the outcome, however, take note that this is normally a two-year process at DHET.)

Agricultural Management Human Resource Management
