With January well underway and the Jingle Bells of the holiday period a distant memory, the market research industry’s conference season is upon us. We curated a list of the upcoming MRX conferences in 2017. Seeing them all in one place helps us get a handle on the big picture and assess where we’re going to spend our time and money. We’re sharing the list with you in hopes it helps you do the same. While we’re at it, let’s first look at a few reasons why they are important to attend.
So why attend a conference in the market research industry?
- Networking. We follow these people and companies on social media. We ‘thumbs up’ their updates, ‘heart’ their tweets and double tap their IGs. But nothing can beat a face to face meet encounter. When attending a conference be sure to line up some meetings in advance and mingle with people your new connections. We’ve found that some of our best client partnerships have been built on the foundation of an in-person meeting, or even a chance encounter during a networking session at a conference.
- Latest Trends. Whether it’s the latest VR technology that helps with your research or CRM software that makes things faster and safer, you will be guaranteed an in-depth demonstration from those in the know and also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
- Sharpen Your Saw. Whether it is a mix of being away from the desk and meeting industry peers, we always leave a conference being motivated and refreshed ready to take an inspired new approach to our job and the industry. This leads to happy employees and happy employers.
So which conference should you attend? Here is a helpful list of upcoming MRX conferences with clickable links if you want to find out more.
We will be attending different conferences throughout the year so be sure to keep an eye on our social media to see if we can arrange a face to face meeting. But you don’t have to wait until we meet at a conference to get the ball rolling, simply SayHi.
