"There is no doubt that one of the worst kept secrets of the global world of business is the increasing economic power of Islam" Professor David Weir


The International Islamic Marketing Association in cooperation with UNIVERSITE MOHAMMED V SOUISSI | Diplôme des Etudes Supérieures de l’Université «DUS»| Pratiques Professionnelles et Juridiques de la Finance Islamique; Moroccan Society for Islamic Economics; Faculty of Economics at Erciyes University - Turkey; and Qatar University, is pleased to invite you and your esteemed institution to attend the 8th Global Islamic Marketing Conference in Turkey in May 2017. This conference, running for the 8th time, is the largest dedicated gathering to the study of Muslim consumption and business practice. It attracts researchers from around the world and boasts publication opportunities in several important and varied journals.

This time, a special focus will be on defining and developing Islamic Marketing as a field and as a concept.  Delving into what it should contain and what it should pursue.  There has been significant interest in the field since the first conference was launched in 2011 and this momentum is rising year on year.  Just in the last few years there have been articles in many of the very top marketing journals on Islamic Marketing such as JBR, J of Macromarketing, J of Bus Ethics, EJM, Marketing Theory, Tourism Management, Journal of Business Research, amongst others.  This is a field with enormous potential, in terms of the economic value of the market, but more importantly in terms of what it can offer as a foil to current market imperfections and irregularities. 

As always a very wide range of papers relating to Muslim consumers, Muslim markets, Halal interests and also comparative issues are welcome.
