BAM2023 Conference - Registration now open

We are pleased to confirm that registration is now open for the BAM203 Conference at the University of Sussex. Join us either in-person or virtually to hear from high level speakers in panel discussions, participate in PDWs, network with colleagues, present your research and much more!

Our confirmed plenary speakers include Prof David Teece, Prof Anita McGahan, Profesor Richard Whittington and Prof Tima Bansal . A full list of speakers can be found here.

We appreciate that many in our community are facing increased financial pressures as a result of inflation. Unfortunately, BAM is not immune to these pressures and many of our costs – including venue hire, catering, equipment, supplies, staffing, IT support, programme production, maintaining our programming, registration, and virtual event platform – have increased substantially. As we need to ensure a sustainable future for BAM, our Conference needs to cover its costs, so it has been necessary to increase fees for 2023. 

Recent years have let us innovate in how colleagues participate in the BAM Conference, with 2020 and 2021’s wholly virtual events - which kept our community engaged – being followed by last year’s very successful hybrid Conference in Manchester. We are keen to maintain the option for delegates unable to attend Conference in person to join us virtually. This reflects the importance we place on inclusivity.

Sadly, delivering hybrid solutions, together with inflationary pressures, has meant that the overall cost of staging the Conference has risen by over a third since before the start of the pandemic alone. As our Conference registration fees have remained largely unchanged for over a decade, it has been necessary to review the situation. As a result, this year we are reluctantly increasing the registration fees.

We have taken care to keep the increases as low as possible and to target them so that most delegates, who register in good time, will only pay a very small amount more. The slightly larger increase for virtual delegates reflects the true cost of streaming, the other technology and support associated with virtual attendance.  

Take advantage of the early bird fee and register here.
