Amsterdam: Locations ICORIA 2014

Season’s Greetings

As time goes by, a trend toward global research collaboration has changed the nature of the EAA. Our membership is no longer limited to a single region—namely, Europe. In the last ICORIA, in Amsterdam, we received more than 150 participants from nearly all regions, including North America, Asia, Australasia, and Africa. Given this trend, the EAA has decided to take a step towards ensuring our future growth. We will start a trial joint membership with the American Academy of Advertising (AAA) in January 2015. In this strategic alliance, members will enjoy all membership benefits of both organizations. We hope this EAA-AAA joint membership will serve as a catalyst to further our internationalization.

Facing the challenge of this new global alliance, the EAA needs to improve our membership relations, as does our Web site. We are planning to update the EAA Web site so that our members can access past conference proceedings, along with other resources, through our membership only page. We hope to launch our new site by mid-January 2015.

Celebrating the 10th anniversary since its founding, the EAA has created a new award named after the late Flemming Hansen (Copenhagen Business School). In 2002, Professor Hansen held the Forum for Advertising Research Conference, which became the first ICORIA. Four years later, he founded the EAA at the 4th ICORIA Saarbrucken, and served as the first President for two years. This award recognizes a scholar who has produced publication(s) with significant impact in our knowledge of advertising research. We hope that this award keeps Professor Hansen’s scholarly spirit alive in our hearts.

We’re looking forward to 2015, which will see the ICORIA London with a newly designed doctoral colloquium, Advances in Advertising Research VI, the EAA-AAA joint membership, and much more!

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Shintaro Okazaki
EAA President

EAA-AAA Joint Membership
