Youssef Abdo Royal Roads University, Canada


Sheridan Anang Ategha Girne American University, North Cyprus

Attending the conference was a huge added value for me - lots of knowledge, experience!

Prof. Agnieszka Rzepkaison Lublin University of Technology, Poland

This conference had a very different approach to traditional marketing conferences, as it included a much broader research stream than just marketing. It was refreshing to also hear speakers talk about systemic economic change and environmental communication challenges, which all intersect in sustainable marketing. The research presented at the conference was timely and relevant, and even though it was online, the format allowed for a surprising amount of interaction and participation of the attendees.

Dr. Barbara Behre Ghent University, Belgium

Attending RISM 2023 was an enjoyable experience. The conference was expertlyorganized and provided unparalleled access to leading experts in the field of sustainable marketing. The in-depth insights shared by the speakers were enlightening, and I left the conference feeling inspired and empowered to make a positive impact. I look forward to participating in RISM next year and highly recommend it to anyone interested in the intersection of marketing and sustainability.

Okaï Ozbal, Ph.D. ISG Business School, France

It was my first participation in the conference and it was a very good experience for me. I can say that it is a really high quality conference on an international scale. I would like to thank dear Volkan Altıntaş for making us aware of the conference. I have already informed many of my friends about the conference and I would love to attend again next year.

Dr. Sema Ekincek Anadolu University, Turkey

For me it was an incredible experience, I am 32 years old and have been a research professor for 2 years, without a doubt someone young that allows me to learn from experts in marketing and especially from other countries, since many theories in Latin America and Mexico must be adapted or have different contexts in research, however it was incredible the opportunity and support they gave me to be able to reschedule my presentation. Dana was very kind and the whole RISM team.

Norma Arely Zuñiga Espinosa Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Hidalgo, Mexico

RISM2023 symposium very well represented by great researchers, with very relevant topics and good guidelines for research and production of scientific papers, as mentioned " it is important to know how to tell a story well"! Very well organized, speakers very clear and affable in their speech! Congratulations.

Assoc. Prof. Meghna Verman Ramaiah Institute of Management, India

From 14 to 16 of March 2023 wasn't a usual event, it was a rise of the new academic sun *RISM*, a newborn of a genuine global beacon of culture. Thanks to Dr. Ahmad Aljarah, Dr. Dana Alden, the speakers and moderators, and all those who worked to achieve this global phenomenon
