The Top 5 UK Market Research Events and Conferences




While coronavirus is putting a damper on pretty much everyone’s day-to-day life, market research is a constant force. We press on. Even though events have been canceled due to COVID-19, we can still get excited about our research. We can also look forward to all the yearly events we look forward to because eventually they’ll be rescheduled.

We can’t forget about the good times we have when getting together in the UK research/insights industry, even when we are currently social distancing. That’s why we’re going to talk about some of the greatest UK research events that will happen later in 2020 once the coronavirus panic calms down.

1. MRS Annual Conference

The MRS Annual Conference generally takes place in the springtime. It discusses the effects that changing buying habits and an ever-moving economy have on the business of insight. At this conference, experts will discuss how these issues can be tackled head-on by businesses so that they can capitalize and prove that market research and evidence is important even in these uncertain times.

There are eBooks that you may want to download before this summit so that you can become more knowledgeable before next year’s convention!

2. The Quirks Event – London

This event takes place each winter in London. It is an interactive marketing research conference with a lot of educational sessions to discuss the current goings-on in the market. Those who attend will also be given a lot of networking opportunities and the chances to attend exhibitions on research methods that other experts are using to gather insights into current consumer and business trends.

3. Market Research Summit

Though the Market Research Summit has been postponed until May of 2021, it’s still something to look forward to. In fact, this postponement can be a good thing if you want to have more time to prepare an exhibit for the conference! This event hosts many new and emerging leaders in the market insights industry and allows them to discuss the new approaches and methods they’re using to derive insights and implement these insights into business practises.

4. Executing Shopper Insights

This awesome event takes place each winter in London and brings together the leading FMCG brands in the industry. Here, they’ll take part in a series of interactive case studies and round-table discussions. These conversations will be about the integration of insight strategies that different brands can use to enhance marketing investment impact and promote customer engagement.

5. ASC Building Bridges: Connecting Survey Data to the Wider World

If you’re looking for a conference that’s still scheduled for 2020, you might want to check out this one! On 12 November 2020 in London, this conference will be split into two parts. The first will show how leaders in the industry are using surveys and data to connect with the world as a whole, and the second will look into how market research professionals can use non-survey data to put their survey data into context.
