IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are forced to cancel the 9th Annual Winter GBC Conference 2021. We hope to meet again in Tignes in 2022.


Dear participants!

It is my great pleasure, on behalf of Program and Organizing Committee and in my own name, to invite you to the 9th Annual Winter Global Business Conference 2021 which will be held in one of the world’s largest ski resort, listed as “snow-sure resort” – Tignes in France (January 25th-29th, 2021).

This conference is intended for academics and practitioners to meet and exchange ideas on doing business in “new normal” environment caused by COVID-19 pandemic. We welcome a diverse set of contributions: from those which are in an idea stage to those that are fully developed manuscripts. We also welcome different formats for publication in the proceedings: from abstracts, which indicate the direction, to full papers. Proceedings (with ISSN) will be published by Innovation Institute.

Based on our previous conferences, I am sure that this conference will be a great success providing a wide array of contributions with diverse interests. 2021 Winter Global Business Conference is situated in one of the world’s top skiing resort which will provide fresh air for the intellectual endeavors and ample free-time activities.

We will do our best to make your stay at the conference as pleasant as possible so you can focus on your work and experience the mesmerizing Espace Killy ski area in Tignes.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for the 9th Annual Winter Global Business Conference 2021.
