The exit from the economic crisis of 2008 provides firms with new opportunities for business growth. Therefore, international firms operating in different markets need to refresh their export strategies and overseas distributor relations.

This special issue welcomes all types of studies – quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods as well as meta-analysis/critical review/conceptual papers, empirical studies and case studies. Other areas related to international marketing management strategies of firms are also encouraged.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 4th International Conference on Contemporary Marketing Issues (ICCMI 2016), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
