Vibrant Publishers at the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management

Read about Vibrant’s first year at the pre-eminent annual conference.

The 83rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management was convened in Boston, Massachusetts, USA from August 4-8, 2023. More than 10,000 attendees from 80+ countries came together to delve into the theme of “Putting the Worker Front and Center” and engaged in 2,300+ scholarly sessions. The conference hosts academics in the fields of management and organization, which include students and practitioners who come together to discuss the most vital issues pertaining to both spheres. It provides a platform for the attendees to present their research, receive and provide feedback, and network with members of the community. Vibrant Publishers was a proud member of the conference where we showcased our Self-Learning Management books, and networked with fellow publishers and practitioners.

The conference was attended by our founders Avani Udeshi and Deep Udeshi. Our booth (number 513) featured our complete array of Self-Learning Management books on topics such as digital marketing, business law, entrepreneurship, economics, operations and supply chain, and human resource management to name a few (check out our complete collection here). Alongside our books were the galley copies of our upcoming titles, namely Macroeconomics Essentials, Social Media Marketing Essentials, Service Marketing Essentials, and Personal Finance Essentials (interested readers who would like to provide feedback on the book before it goes on sale can request a galley copy here). We encouraged management experts to publish with us and management professors to adopt our books in their courses’ curricula.

Avani and Deep got the chance to interact with professors, practitioners, and students from countries all around the world: India, Canada, Israel, Korea, Lebanon, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, and the USA. “We got to interact with them and tell them about our books relevant to their fields of expertise. Most of the visitors were keen on knowing more about our Self-Learning Management series, and we were more than happy to walk them through it. My mentor, Dr. Jagdish Sheth, was the one who recommended that we attend the conference this year. I’m glad we followed through on his advice,” said Deep.

To entertain our visitors, we hosted a fun activity Spin The Wheel, which offered them the opportunity to win goodies such as pop sockets, t-shirts, and other surprise gifts. The visitors were also handed merchandise like bottles, phone stands, t-shirts, and handbags. We also met fellow publishers, conducted fruitful conversations, and exchanged ideas.

After a triumphant maiden run, Vibrant Publishers is all set to attend the next iteration of the conference that will be held in Chicago, Illinois, where we hope to bring our personal brand of ideas to champion the theme “Innovating for the Future: Policy, Purpose, and Organization.” Hope to see you at Booth No. 504 next year!
