Host the ANZMAC Conference

The Australian and New Zealand Marketing Academy (ANZMAC) is an association for educators, researchers and practitioners interested in marketing theory and research. The primary purpose of the association is the advancement of Marketing knowledge as a rounded discipline and profession.

With respect to the Annual Conference the guiding Principles and Philosophy of ANZMAC are to:

  1. Provide an Australia/New Zealand network in the field of research in marketing;
  2. Provide a forum for research presentations and evaluations;
  3. Provide publication outlets for high quality research;
  4. Support young researchers in the marketing field;
  5. Foster a broad variety of methodological approaches and research issues in marketing, and encourage cross-fertilisation between approaches;
  6. Develop an agenda of research topics;
  7. Recognise contributions to the marketing discipline; and
  8. To carry out any activity which the Academy considers to promote any or all the purposes as set out above.

    The Annual Conference and Doctoral Colloquium is the major event held under the brand of the Academy. As such it is integral to the services offered to our membership and it is vital that the event is managed in a professional way by the Conference Host.
