Overview: AIB-SE announces its 2022 annual conference with the theme: Responsiveness in Business Environments: New Ways to Thrive. The past two years have been extraordinary in the field of international business and for the AIB-SE chapter. The pandemic has driven sweeping changes in the virtual provision of services as well as in supply chain management. Consumers have grown accustomed to virtual, or home, delivery of goods and services. They have more ways than ever to pay bills, make appointments, and visit with service providers. Employees are demanding the option to work from home and are increasingly leaving organizations that are not flexible. Organizations that incorporate responsiveness as a part of their strategies can better react to the new environments, have a stronger chance of thriving by changing their internal environments to address the emerging new external business environments. But what makes a global company responsive to the changing environments? What are the characteristics of a responsive global company? This is the focus of our 2022 conference.
This year’s conference takes place in Panama City Beach, FL, in cooperation with Florida State University. Panama City Beach has a long tradition in retail, health care, and tourism. It has the world’s most beautiful, sugar sand beaches, which makes it one of the most famous tourist attractions in Florida, an unparalleled vacation destination.
