The Thirteenth Biennial Conference of the Asian Consumer and Family Economics Association (ACFEA) is going to be held at Sasin School of Management, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.  The theme of the conference in 2020 is “Consumer and Business Sustainability in a Disruptive Era.”  
The ACFEA is proud to work with Sasin, the first internationally accredited business school in Thailand, which is dedicated to grooming future leaders in the area of sustainability management, a rapidly emerging area of interest around the world.  Combining the principles of sustainable development, corporate social responsibility, and His Late Majesty King Bhumibol’s Sufficiency Economy Philosophy, sustainability management addresses the importance of all stakeholders to the long-term success of a business.
The overall objective of the conference is to improve the well-being of consumers, families and businesses in an era where disruptions constantly occur in all aspects of our lives.  This conference will mobilize resources in Thailand and abroad to support research in the fields of sufficiency economy, sustainable development, consumer and family economics and responsible business practices in Thailand and globally.  In addition, the conference seeks to enhance knowledge development on global consumers and international businesses.  The conference will feature a wide range of tracks for competitive sessions and panels, keynote speakers from academia and business, as well as opportunities for networking.  This conference is an excellent opportunity to present scholarly work and obtain critical feedback in a professional setting.  We encourage the participation of both faculty and graduate students.  Submissions can range from work-in-progress to completed articles aiming for journal publication.  We accept conceptual, theoretical, and empirical research in all related fields.
