International Conference on Management in Emerging Markets


Dear Colleagues,


On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to the 2022 the 7th International Conference on Management in Emerging Markets on August 10-12, 2022, i.e. ICMEM 2022. ICMEM 2022 is a continuation of six previous annual conferences organized successfully by the School of Business and Management, Institut Teknologi Bandung, since 2016.

Building on the success of previous meetings, the theme for 2022 is “Diving into MetaVerse: The Future of Business & Management in Emerging Markets”. Metaverse is a new virtual world based on 3-dimensional digital. In the metaverse, people can carry out various activities such as playing, doing business, shopping, and other activities without going out of the house. The phenomenon of the virtual metaverse world is not only attractive to investors but also to business people. Along with the development of the metaverse, of course, many business people see the presence of the metaverse as a new business opportunity. As ICMEM 2022 will provide a co-creation platform where all stakeholders from, government, and society interact through business academic research presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and keynote talks from leading global business and management think tanks.

ICMEM 2022 will host discussions on research work on highly relevant business and management topics ranging from industry 4.0, the latest industry metaverse, blockchain games, and data analytics to sustainability issues. In addition, two companion events will also be held in conjunction with ICMEM 2022, namely  the Swiss Innovation Challenge Indonesia (SICA) and the International Graduate Colloquium (IGC). IGC is a forum for students postgraduates to present and discuss their developing research work, such as cutting-edge research and development of conceptual models, empirical findings, etc.


In closing, we hope to warmly welcome you to ICMEM 2022 and that you have an enjoyable, memorable and productive time at ICMEM this year.



Warm regards.

Bandung is the capital of West Java in Indonesia. Bandung is 180 kilometers southeast from Jakarta. Although it has a population of over two million the pace of city life is slower than Jakarta's. Today Bandung has a population of 2 million people, Bandung area an estimated 4 million. Bandung is situated on a plateau 768 meters above sea level with a cool climate throughout the year. Bandung is the most European city of Java. The raining season starts in Bandung a little bit earlier, then the rest of Indonesia. Normally the raining season in Indonesia is from October till May, the peak of the raining season is in January. The dry season is from June until August, temperature is then 25-30 degrees Celsius during the day. In the morning, the sun is almost shining every day, but in the afternoon many times it gets cloudy, for sunbathing we have to wake up early from 6.30 the sun is already there. In the evening when the sun is down the temperature has drops. The average temperature in Bandung is 22 degrees Celsius; the weather is pleasant all year round.

There are short drives up to the mountain resorts of Lembang and the Bosscha Observatory, and higher to the volcanic crater of Tangkuban Perahu, the only crater in Java accessible all the way by car as far as its rim. It is an awe-inspiring sight of emanating sulfur fumes. Descent into all the volcano's 12 craters is only possible with the aid of an experienced guide, because of the presence of suffocating gases at certain spots. Just a 15 minutes drive from Tangkuban Perahu is a hot springs resort. Here we can swim in warm mineral water pools, good for healing skin problems. The resort provides visitors with a bar, restaurants, tennis courts and cottage style hotels overlooking a beautiful mountain-scope.

In Bandung, try to see the "Wayang Golek" wooden puppet show and hear the "Angklung" bamboo orchestra, as well as the classical Sundanese gamelan and dances. Several institutes of higher education are located here, including the country's prestigious Bandung Institute of Technology.
