The 16th IBIMA conference on Innoviation and Knowledge Management: A Global Competitive Advantage will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 29-30 June 2011.

Kuala Lumpur is the capital and the largest city of Malaysia.  Kuala Lumpur was founded in 1857 as a tin-mining camp.  Today, Kuala Lumpur combines the old with the present in a charming way.  This is observed in how the Sultan Abdul Samad building blends with very well with the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.  Still, there is more in Kuala Lumpur to see and enjoy: The old railway station, Masjid Jamek, the headquarters of Telekom Malaysia, and China Town.  

Come and see for yourself why 

Malaysia is truly Asia

The Month of June is one of the best months to travel to Kuala Lumpur due to the excellent weather conditions.   

This major international conference will address a range of important themes with respect to Information Management, General Business, Marketing, Human Resources, Economics, and Finance in organizations. 

The conference will include numerous papers and workshop presentations by academics and researchers from around the globe.
