Global Conference 2019

Global Conference 2019 - Istanbul

Book your tickets

We are pleased to announce that the beautiful city of Istanbul, Turkey will be the setting for our Global Conference 2019 taking place from 13 - 15 May.

As ever, we will be delivering the same high quality standards of content, speakers, hotel and dinner venues as we did in Venice in 2016, Dubai in 2017 and Stockholm in 2018.

Our speakers will include some of the world’s leading Deans and CEOs, plus insights and examples of some of the most powerful emerging technologies set to revolutionise management education. These will include artificial intelligence-enhanced programmes such as the ‘Robot Tutor’ and the latest update on the ‘3D Hologram Professor’, which generated so much interest in Stockholm earlier this year.
We have chosen iconic venues for both Conference dinners – the Pera Palace, the legendary hotel built in 1892 to accommodate passengers arriving on the Orient Express train; and the Çirağan Palace Kempinski, spectacularly located on the banks of the Bosphorus Sea.  
The conference will take place at the magnificent Istanbul Intercontinental Hotel, right in the heart of the city, commanding stunning views of the Bosphorus Sea, the Istanbul skyline and the Blue Mosque. Our conference delegate price has remained unchanged for over 13 years now and the special Intercontinental hotel rate for delegates is just €110 per night (excluding 8% VAT).
All delegates are also welcome to join our free AMBA networking city tour of Istanbul, on the afternoon of Sunday 12 May, a guided-tour opportunity to experience the magnificent Byzantine churches, Venetian towers, Ottoman palaces and Bosphorus Sea, which make this city – at the crossroads of Europe and Asia – one of the most culturally fascinating in the world.
