The McMaster World Congress is an annual business conference that draws hundreds of corporate executives, recognized academics, and student leaders together to discuss and advance leading issues in the fields of Corporate Governance, Electronic Business, and Intellectual Capital and Innovation. The conference runs from January 14th to the 16th, 2004 at the Hamilton Convention Centre, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Last year, the conference hosted over 825 delegates from 35 different countries.
Not only does the McMaster World Congress have such a wide scope of delegates geographically, but it also draws attendees from a variety of professional backgrounds. Since the fields of governance, e-business, and intellectual capital and innovation are extremely influential in all areas of business development; success in these fields requires both practitioners and academics to continually update their skills and knowledge in the two areas. The conference helps to expand knowledge in these three key areas by discussing current and future trends, methodologies and research.
