Amsterdam — July 6 -8, 2023
European Association of Consumer Research 2023
Welcome to EACR 2023 Amsterdam !
We are excited to announce that European ACR (EACR) will be held -in person- in Amsterdam from July 6-8, 2023! The conference is envisioned to provide opportunities for intersections among consumer researchers and promises to be the centre point connecting science and our diverse backgrounds.
As a thriving international city Amsterdam has been a trading nucleus for centuries. It is also a remarkable location for global culture attracting some of the world’s finest painters, writers, and creative minds, and is well-known for its rich theatre life and dynamic music scene. In Amsterdam, you will find old trading houses situated along hundred kilometres of canals, ninety islands, and fifteen hundred bridges. The city’s broad and limitless appeal has inspired us to nestle EACR within its environs while bringing together consumer researchers across the world, embracing diversity of all kinds to enable new perspectives and collaborations.
The EACR 2023 conference, among other sessions, will feature a keynote speech by Daniel Effron from London Business School (https://www.danieleffron.com), a special session on Open Science led by Leif Nelson (UC Berkeley), panel sessions led by Simona Botti (London Business School) and Kristin Diehl (University of Southern California) and a Meet the Editors session represented by the editors of our field’s top journals. In addition, we will organize social events (e.g., Amsterdam canal tour, cycling trip, dance party) to experience the beauty of Amsterdam and its vibrant atmosphere with excellent music, food, and drinks.
The conference will be held at the contemporary Hotel Casa, Amsterdam (https://hotelcasa.nl/). Rooms have been reserved at special rates at the hotel whose location also has several other hotels in proximity.
We are looking forward seeing you in Amsterdam for a great and inspiring conference!
