Winter Global Business Conference 2013 in Tignes primarily aims at understanding the key issues for growth in shrinking markets. We are interested in different perspectives: different fieldsâ€™ perspectives, different levels of analysis (macro to micro), different industries, etc. Shrinking markets can be observed from, at least, three perspectives: (1) macro perspective: market shrinkage as a result of crisis â€“ therefore all industries and markets to a certain extent face the shrinking market today; (2) industry perspective: market shrinkage as a result of industry maturity â€“ in mature environments it becomes increasingly challenging to achieve growth; (3) firm perspective: market shrinkage as a result of firmâ€™s bad choices.
Shrinking markets can be taken as given, thus seeing the market players (competitors, consumers, governments, etc) and needing to adjust to the new rules of the game. However, the question that arises is what can be done to achieve growth in spite of shrinking markets? What are some key issues that can help grow out of market problems?
This conference provides an opportunity for an interdisciplinary take on these issues. We are looking forward to diverse contributions aiming at excelling our knowledge on the key ideas about growing in shrinking markets.

Tignes is located in the RhÃ´ne-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It consists of five smaller villages: Tignes Les BrÃ©viÃ¨res (1550m), Tignes Les Boisses (1850m), Tignes Le Lavachet (2100m), Tignes Val Claret (2100) and Tignes Le Lac (2100m) which is generally classified as the main village of Tignes. Whether you are a big fan of skiing, you prefer holidays with your family, you are fond of authenticity, or you are a party animal, Tignes shows you all it's got to help you choose the area of the resort where you belong!
Tignes is the best known as a ski resort and, together with the nearby Val d'IsÃ¨re, it forms one of the Worldâ€™s largest ski areas â€“ the Espace Killy, encompassing more than 300 kilometers of ski runs and some of Europeâ€™s most spectacular scenery. Tignes itself has 150 kilometers of ski runs, a boarding park at Val Claret giving riders the chance to try their hand at some freestyle jumping, rails and â€˜big airâ€™, and for the more adventurous, Tignes has access to some of the Worldâ€™s best off-piste terrains.
Tignes was the freestyle skiing venue for the 1992 Winter Olympics and co-host city for the 1992 Winter Paralympics. At 4.2 km, Tignes boasts the 4th longest funicular in the world. It has many bars and restaurants, and two night clubs with regular appearances of some of the top DJâ€™s.
