AMS Review Theory Forum
Pre-Conference Event Hosted by: Academy of Marketing Science
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 (1 p.m. - 5:30 p.m)
JW Marriott Hotel, Indianapolis, IN
Cost: Free with registration for the AMS conference
The AMS Review Theory Forum brings together leading marketing scholars, such as Shelby Hunt, Ajay Kohli, Robert Lusch, and William Wilkie, to share their perspectives on theory development in marketing. Although the marketing discipline remains vibrant and progress continues to be made on multiple fronts, there has been growing concern in recent years about the lack of emphasis on conceptual/theoretical contributions. This is detrimental to long-term knowledge development in our field and significantly diminishes its impact and influence.
