Professor Christian Homburg will present a critical assessment of marketing research, discussing perspectives on the rigor versus relevance debate and addressing the necessity to produce managerial relevant work. His examination of causes for the current state of managerial relevance calls attention to issues on marketing education and a worsening imbalance between consumer behaviour, quantitative modelling and marketing strategy and management.

How can high street shops compete with online retailers?

Professor Anders Gustafsson will share ground-breaking research in this area. Despite the fact that 90% of all purchases still occur in physical outlets, the world of retail is changing with digital outlets appearing to have the upper hand on bricks-and-mortar when it comes to competition. Customers are highly influenced by scent, sound, touch, taste and visual aspects(as well as actions by other humans) so could sensory marketing be the answer to improving high street sales in a digital world?
