Next Generation Research Conference 2014

We produced the Next Generation Research conference which ran in London last week.

Next Generation Research panel session

It was a really interesting look at the impact of technology on market research and what this means for insights teams at brands an in agency. I would say it was “really interesting” since I organised the speaker line-up, but also the feedback we’ve received so far has been great.

We covered the following topics at the conference:

> What the digitisation of insight means to market research professionals
> Big Data
> Fusing data from different sources to create insight
> Using online communities
> Neuromarketing
> Mobile market research
> Storytelling

We also had two new session formats to explore the next generation of market research…

> Start-up Ignite: six technology start-ups told us how they planed to revolutionise market research

> Meet the Rising Stars of Market Research: five young research professionals introduced their ideas for how the market research industry needed to evolve.
