The conference is designed to bring together current research from the fields of international business, multinational corporations (MNCs), foreign direct investment (FDI), and small and medium sized multinationals with a particular focus on international political risk management. The objective is to analyse patterns and forces, which influence political risk management in today’s world with respect to FDI and MNCs. Therefore, the conference offers an excellent opportunity to meet those people who have interest and expertise in these areas. With this regard, academics and practicing business people should attend the conference to exchange information and ideas on a variety of international business topics.
The conference will be held from September 1 to September 2, 2022 at the Campus of RMUTP - Rajamangala University of Technology Phra Nakhon, located in the heart of Bangkok’s old city centre.

As is known, an extended abstract and a full paper are quite similar in some respects except the length. In other words, the primary difference is that an extended abstract is significantly shorter than a full paper. For the WIBF’s case, we require those authors aiming to submit an extended abstract rather than a full paper, to submit at least a 3-page extended abstract. If they want it could be much longer up to 6 pages.
As is stated in the WIBF’s Typing Style Guidelines Template (Style Guide for Submission to Würzburg International Business Forum International Business Conference Proceedings), one page prepared with the required 10-point type is approximately equivalent to 3 pages of double-spaced copy printed with 12-point type. Therefore, a 3-page extended abstract will be 9 pages when it is 12-point type and double spaced (including the references).
The format of an extended abstract will be exactly the same like a full paper as is indicated in the WIBF’s Typing Style Guidelines Template.

What should I wear during the conference? What is the weather like this time of year in Istanbul, Turkey?
September is usually a rainy in Bangkok and the weather is pleasant. Hence it is a good time to visit the city. The average minimum temperature (usually the minimum temperature is noted during the night) in Bangkok in September is 25.0°C (77°F). Therefore, for clothing, lightweight natural fabrics work best, and pack long pants and long-sleeved shirts. Pack a lightweight raincoat and travel umbrella.
