Dear AIB2023 participants,

We are excited to inform you about upcoming events that provide opportunities for you to learn more about and participate in the activities of the Emerging Markets Shared Interest Group (EM-SIG) at the AIB Conference. Mark your calendars and don’t miss out on these opportunities to engage with the EM-SIG community at the AIB Conference!

2. Emerging Markets SIG Meet-and-Greet / Info Session (Session# 231905) – July 8, 12:00-13:00
Any and all AIB members interested in learning more about or participating in the activities of the EM-SIG are invited to attend this session. Grab your lunch and head over to this meet-and-greet to network with like-minded individuals and to provide input on how the SIG can best serve your interests.

3. Emerging Market Shared Interest Group: Amplifying the Impact of a Large Community (Session# 230925) – July 8, 14:30-15:45
Chair: Helena Barnard, University of Petoria
Many AIB members come from emerging market countries, still live there, or are professionally interested in business into and from emerging markets. The emerging markets track is always one of the biggest tracks at the AIB World conference. Yet there has never been a single organization that brought together and sought to leverage the interest and energy of this community. In 2022, AIB’s Emerging Markets Shared Interest Group was founded. This SIG aims to become a convening group that amplifies the emerging market-related efforts and energies of chapters and other SIGs. This panel serves to share what initiatives we have identified as core, and to hear from our constituents how the EM-SIG can best serve AIB.

Before we gather in Poland, we strongly encourage you to:
