Entering our fifth decade, ISBE’s annual conference has established itself as one of the most important events in the small business and entrepreneurship calendar, attracting delegates from academic research and teaching, and an ever-growing number from business practice, policy and support.

We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham this November, building on the great successes of our 40th anniversary conference in Belfast last year, and our 2016 Paris conference. We anticipate over 400 attendees from more than 40 countries, and a further 250 presentations of the highest quality new entrepreneurial research on a diverse range of topics along with high profile keynote speakers, stimulating panel debates and a number of specialist workshops.

This year’s theme is Research, policy and practice: Collaboration in a disparate world. Please find the full call for papers here


Details for the main conference venue, the Crowne Plaza Hotel, are given below.

Please note that the ISBE 2018 Doctoral Day will take place at Coventry University and this year’s Gala Dinner takes place at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel, right in the City Centre.

The pre-conference event, Transforming Enterprise, has been cancelled and postponed until early 2019. For any queries, please contact
