Global Advances in Business Culture and Communication (GABC) Conference

The GABC conference scheduled for June 11 – 13, 2020 in Ypsilanti, MI was cancelled. This was a painful decision to make, but due to a personal family emergency, we felt we could not provide you with the best conference experience at this time.

Thank you for your continued support of GABC. We plan to partner with the Association of Business Communication at the conference in Seoul, Korea in July 2023.  We expect to open submissions in November, 2022 and hope you will submit at that time.   


The Trans-Continental Conference on Global Advances in Business Culture and Communication (GABC) will bring together academics and practitioners to consider ongoing scholarly activities and business practices which shape and are shaped by the intersection of cultural factors and global business. 

This page is under development.  Check back in late November for additional details.
