ICCMI returns to the beautiful island of Crete. The Conference will be held between the 10-12 July 2024. We invite academics, practitioners, and students from around the world to participate. In its 12th year ICCMI continues its long tradition of bringing together a diverse group of people that includes academics, practitioners, and students from around the world who discuss, argue, and engage in knowledge transfer in the fields of Marketing, Tourism, and other related fields.

The island of Crete really needs no introduction. It is the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and birthplace of one of the first civilizations ever to exist on European soil, the Minoan civilization with its wonderous palatial complexes and magnificent art. Many different peoples have set foot in Crete throughout the ages including the Romans, Venetians, Turks and many more, something that reflects in the diversity of the art, architecture, cuisine, and culture that exists on the island. The island is also renowned for its beautiful seaside. Conference participants will be able to experience all these and more as ICCMI has various social and cultural events planned.

The Conference this year will be co-organized by the Department of Business Administration and Tourism of the Hellenic Mediterranean University, Greece and the School of Organisations, Economy and Society, University of Westminster, UK.

Professor Alexandros Apostolakis and Associate Professor Markos Kourgiantakis from the Hellenic Mediterranean University as well as Dr Luca Cacciolatti, Reader in the University of Westminster will serve as Conference Co-Chairs alongside Professor Emeritus Christos Sarmaniotis, the founder of ICCMI.

We are very pleased to announce that Professor Savvas Papagiannidis will serve as the Keynote Speaker in the 12th ICCMI.
