It is a great privilege and honor to be invited as a speaker to this year's IBAICM conference. I have to applaud the organizing committee to the format that allows close interaction between practitioners and scholars in the field of marketing. Unfortunately we lack this kind of conferences in Europe. Considering this unique opportunity, I plan to give a talk on "Market Driving", which is a further step in the development of market orientation of companies and hopefully stimulating for managers as well as fellow academics.
