"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 (IIMA) in cooperation with Université de Tunis EL Manar  and, following the last eight successful conferences organized by IIMA in Dubai 2011, Abu Dhabi 2012, Cairo 2012, and Istanbul 2013, Kuala Lumpur 2014, Istanbul 2015, Casablanca 2016, and Alanya 2017, we are pleased to announce that the 9th Global Islamic Marketing Conference (GIMAC9) will be held on April 25-26, 2018 in Tunis, where it will gather academics, researchers, businesses, governments, and NGOs from all continents.  

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.
