Tell us your research conference plans for 2012!

Most researchers would agree that attending trade shows and conferences is an important part of the profession – to get educated, to keep a finger on the pulse of the industry, to meet your peers and to build the foundation for future business relationships. As an editor, I also go hoping to scare up a story idea or 10!

Quirk’s keeps track of most industry goings-on in our online event calendar ( but with myriad events from Shanghai to Miami, each with its own specialty, it can be hard to decide where our travel dollars will be best spent!

At Quirk’s we have our go-to shows that we can usually be counted on to attend but we want to know: What are your favorite industry shows and conferences to attend? Which shows stood out in 2011? What did you like about them? Which shows could use some improvement? What topics are overdone and what would you like to see more of? Which shows will you be sure not to miss in 2012? And don’t forget to tell us why!

    ESOMAR full range of events are a must attend for the research industry. For instance, are you attracted by emerging markets, expanding business, what’s going on there? CEE Forum (March- Krakow) APAC Conference (April –Shanghai) or LATAM Conference (May- Mexico) are the right platforms for you. If the thematic/content spectrum is your priority or speciality then: 3D Digital Dimensions Conference (Online + SM + Mobile) in Amsterdam is the place to be, followed by the Qualitative Conference in November. However if you are planning to attend only to one event during 2012, don’t doubt to register to the ESOMAR Annual Congress in Atlanta (September) this macro event is truly the global gathering of the industry besides, ESOMAR celebrates its 65th Anniversary in USA, it couldn’t be better!!
