Research 2011: The Annual Conference
Research 2011 was a hotbed of inspiration, debate and actionable ideas. It was the most content-rich insight gathering for agencies, clients and anyone with a vested interest in understanding consumers and society.
What attendees said:
I’ve become enough of a conference circuit regular now to say confidently that this is my favourite event of the year.
It was a great event and great venue… it just seems to be getting better and better each year.
Vanella Jackson, Hall and Partners
