The theme of the 2013 conference is “Pricing and Retailing.” This conference, which builds on the rich tradition of the pricing conferences first held at Fordham University in 1998, invites research papers related to various aspects of pricing and retailing from both academic and managerial perspectives. The conference will serve as a forum for practitioners and academics to come together and share ideas. The conference co-chairs will arrange a number of both academic and practitioner sessions. This conference precedes the Summer AMA which will be held in downtown Boston from August 9-11, 2013. The conference will be hosted at Babson’s Center for Executive Education (hotel and registration information will be provided on the Babson Retail Supply Chain Institute website).

Boston’s Logan Airport is located approximately 30 minutes away.
For transportation from the airport, please contact the Wellesley Carriage (800-836-0006) and reference the Pricing Conference. Based upon your arrival time, Wellesley Carriage will consolidate travel. The price of the trip one way is $99.50 (inclusive of all fees, tolls and gratuity) for 1 person. The price goes down if there is more than 1 traveling. If you are traveling at a time when others will not be arriving, it makes more sense to take a taxi cab, which costs approximately $70 + gratuity (Veterans Taxi – 617-527-0300). You will need to make a reservation ahead of time. There are also cabs at the airport, but the rates are likely to be higher.
