Why attend- I'm not Muslim?
If you are in the business world and are interested in expanding your markets, or creating a new market, come. Learn about marketing opportunities in the Muslim world. You may not be Muslim, but 1.5 billion are, and they constitute a huge market. Meet people from the Muslim world and attend sessions which can give you insights into what you can and cannot do (Intro to Muslim customs, business practices, etc.,) and sell to Muslims. "Think outside the box" and explore new markets. Stop being so ethnocentric, get out of your comfort zone, explore new cultures, expose yourself to new ideas.
If you are part of the academic world, the same reasons apply to you, plus, get ideas for research areas in marketing topics that are not already being milked in journal publications. Find new research colleagues. Participate in sessions as a discussant or chair,
