About this conference
The Batten Institute at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business hosted the inaugural annual conference in 2010. As the conference grew in popularity, Darden partnered with the Academy of Management in hosting the 2012 event, which enabled the program to be streamed live to every continent. After that successful event, the Cambridge Judge Business School joined in 2013 as a co-sponsor alongside Darden. Since then, the event has shifted location between the United Kingdom and the United States. In 2018, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE) joined Darden and Cambridge Judge to co-host this event for the first time in Asia. The history and previous conference programs can be found at the permanent conference website:
