IMMAA (International Media Management Academic Association) is a global association of academics researching critical issues of media management with the goal of improving practice and understanding of media markets and institutions for the ultimate bene?t of media managers and the students who will be the media managers of the future. Its diverse international membership fosters and promotes an appreciation for the di?erences among countries and cultures that contribute to characteristics that di?erentiate national media markets and shape relationships among them. Past conferences were held in Chicago, San Francisco, Saarbrücken, New York, Lisbon, Pamplona, Moscow and Seoul.

While the range of topics addressed at the IMMAA’s 2017 Annual Conference in São Paulo may be as broad as the issues that must be addressed by managers and policy makers in media markets, the 2017 conference will focus especially on the implications of disruption in media markets for management strategy and educational practice.
