This research proposes and empirically tests the impact of brand personality dimensions on brand desirability in a cross-cultural context. Further, the concept of brand-self-congruity is tested on its mediating role between brand personality dimensions and brand desirability. The results reveal that certain brand personality dimensions can have a direct and/ or indirect impact on brand desirability. Yet, this effect mechanism has not only been found to be brand-dependent but also culture-dependent. In this context, the mediating role of brand-self-congruity was confirmed across all cultures and brands investigated. Important implications are derived for research and brand management. In different countries, different brand personality dimensions lead to brand desirability. Therefore, brand managers should know their markets, understand cultural differences and adjust their brand strategy accordingly in order to attain brand desirability.

Research on the influence of culture on consumer decision-making and consumption behavior has witnessed tremendous growth in the last decade. With increasing globalization, managers are becoming increasingly aware that operating in multiple markets is crucial for firms' survival and growth. As the world's growth engine shifts from Europe and North America to Asia and Latin America, it has become apparent that an inward-looking and domestic focus strategy will not be sustainable in the long run. And success in foreign markets requires marketers to understand not just what consumers in these markets need but also how they think, behave, consume, and purchase. Numerous studies have documented cultural differences in values and beliefs, motivational orientations, emotions, self-regulation, and information-processing styles, and the effects of these cultural variations on consumer behavior such as brand evaluation, materialism, and impulsive consumption. In this volume, experts from a variety of disciplines and perspectives trace the historical development of culture research in consumer psychology and examine the theoretical underpinnings that account for these findings and the current state of the field. Collectively, the chapters provide a forum for researchers to engage in thoughtful debates and stimulating conversations and offer directions for future research.

Welcome to the International Conference on Inter Disciplinary Research in Engineering and Technology (ICIDRET) 2015 in DSIIDC, Government of NCT, New Delhi, India, Asia on 29 – 30 April, 2015. If this is your first time to New Delhi, you need to look on more objects which you could never forget in your lifetime. There is much to see and experience at The National Capital of Republic of India. The concept of Inter Disciplinary research was a topic of focus by various departments across the Engineering and Technology area. Flushing with major areas, this ICIDRET ’15 has addressed the E&T areas like Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Bio-Technology, Bio-Engineering, Bio-Medical, Computer Science, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Management and Textile Engineering. This focus has brought a new insight on the learning methodologies and the terminology of accepting the cross definition of engineering and the research into it. We invite you to join us in this inspiring conversation. I am pretty sure that this conference would indulge the information from the various parts of the world and could coin as a global research gathering. With more and more researchers coming into ICIDRET, this event would be as an annual event. This conference is sure that, this edition and the future edition will serve as a wise platform for the people to come with better research methodologies integrating each and every social component globally. If there would have been a thought of not integrating the RJ45 and few pieces of metal / plastic along with a PCB, today we could haven’t used the telephones and mobile phones. With an ear-mark inspiration and constant support from the Global President Dr. S. Prithiv Rajan, ASDF International President Dr. P. Anbuoli, this publication stands in front of your eyes, without them this would haven’t been possible in a very shortest span. Finally, I thank my family, friends, students and colleagues for their constant encouragement and support for making this type of conference. -- Kokula Krishna Hari K Editor-in-Chief www.kokulakrishnaharik.in
