Like every year, we have listed the most important consumer insight and market research conferences taking place in 2022. After a complete shift to virtual, the first organisers are starting to offer live or hybrid events in the second half of 2021. Check out the MRMW and Qual360 conferences in APAC and Europe for example.
The year 2020-2021 changed the world, and market research, as we know it. Now more than ever businesses need to adjust to a new reality and embrace change. New technologies, bold strategies and forward thinking will help pave the way out of the crisis. Important industry events like those organised by Merlien Institute help sharing the knowledge and spreading the news about innovative new approaches.
While the chance for large, trade show style events are very slim with participants not keen to expose themselves to big crowds, small and highly focused conferences are in the best position to switch back to face-to-face events quicker. The number of online events continues to grow with an increased acceptance of video based solutions around the world. On the other hand, the influx of free, marketing focused online conferences has led to a drop of quality and conference fatigue by market researchers. The number of low quality, free marketing events has not helped the industry. Many of these events are likely to disappear again when participants move beyond a trial and error phase. In the long run professionally organised, specialised events will prevail. Organising a high quality conference takes more than a Zoom or Webex subscription and some smart marketing.
At the same time, the forced switch to online may also lead to some innovative new formats, initially in the form of hybrid events. Combining the best of both worlds may just be the future for market research and consumer insight conferences beyond 2022. Already producers and presenters are fully embracing the new creative options that video productions offer for online events.
