In 2018, the IBII conferences were held in The Woodlands (Houston, TX) on April 6-7. Jointly organized by Sam Houston State University (SHSU)–The Woodlands Center and sponsored by Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU)–Houston Campus, the 2018 IBII Conferences provided a wonderful forum for researchers and scholars to refresh their knowledge base and explore the innovations in varieties of topics in management, business, education, business intelligence.

The main conference tracks are:
      International Conference in Management, Leadership and Business Intelligence (ICMLBI)
      International Conference in Education and Social Science (ICESD)
      International Conference in Intelligent Computing and Big Data (ICICBD)

The Conferences strive to offer networking opportunities, providing attendees with the opportunity to meet and interact with other scholars and researchers, friends and colleagues, as well as sponsors and exhibitors. With the ability to offer virtual presentations, participants who are not able to attend the conferences in-person, are still able to engage with on-site scholars and academics.      

IBII International Conferences welcomed more than 130 participants from 17 countries: United Kingdom, South Africa, Kuwait, Bulgaria, Taiwan, Oman, Nigeria, Canada, South Korea, Pakistan, Denmark, Malaysia, Ghana, Turkey, Germany, Russia and USA.
