The conference program aims to give senior market research professionals access to new ideas, solutions and innovations to help take their departments and companies forward. The agenda is pitched at a high level and we endeavour to present new case studies and new thinkers on the program each year.

This makes our conference program refreshingly different to what you're used to seeing at regular tradeshows and conferences. Why?
  • Built Around Your Needs: We create the conference program based on research and feedback from our clients, senior market research professionals, who like you are dealing with critical issues on a daily basis
  • First class speakers: Conference sessions are led by peers or industry experts, who give a high-level view of the industry, offering predictions and insights to help their peers form their future strategies.
  • Intimate sessions: Sessions are for small groups of under 25 delegates. This environment encourages attendees to be able to share best practices, successful case studies, and receive opinions and suggestions from their colleagues.

  • The Business Value of Open Data

    Joel Gurin, Senior Advisor at The GovLab

    Open data - freely available data that anyone can use and republish for any purpose - is rapidly being recognized as a major business resource. It's been used to launch new companies in healthcare, finance, energy, technology, and many other sectors, and has helped hundreds of companies optimize their business through improved processes and market intelligence. City, state, and national governments provide much of today's open data, with social media, corporate data sharing, and scientific research serving as other important sources.

    This presentation will describe the key business uses of open data with a number of use cases that attendees will apply to their own companies, with a particular focus on business intelligence and understanding markets. Key learning objectives include the following:

    • How open data and big data are related, and different business value of each.
    • How to use major sources of government open data, such as the American Community Survey, to help inform marketing strategy.
    • How to find the most usable sources of government data and manage issues of data quality and availability.
    • How to apply best practices in using open data from social media and sentiment analysis.
    • How and when to consider making your company's own data open - and what the benefit can be.
    • How open data is now being applied in international markets.
