The Mountain Plains Business Association (MPBA) holds an annual gathering of scholars and others interested in sharing research and discussing relevant and contemporary issues in all areas of business. The Mountain Plains Business Conference (MPBC) has a long tradition, dating back to 1959. The gathering is relaxed and informal, and presentations include everything from manuscripts ready for journal submission to discussion-oriented abstracts as well as workshops and panel discussions. A high degree of collegiality exists, and many long-term friendships result from the interactions of conference participants. The conference is hosted on a university campus by a different institution each year. The 2023 MPBC Conference will be held November 3-4, at Utah Tech University, St. George, Utah.
