Last year NewMR created a new approach to market research conferences by launching the Festival of NewMR. This year the Festival has been expanded in several ways, including for example an Innovation Challenge with a cash prize of $20,000. But perhaps the most needed addition was the Training Day, which will be on 31 October 2011.
The Training Day is targeted at newer researchers and researchers looking to expand their skills into new areas. The Training Day is also targeted at Asia, a region that has fewer resources for face-to-face training. In a virtual conference targeting means the time of day, and the Training day is going to run from 6:00am GMT to 9:40am GMT (in terms of other time zones the Training day starts at: Sydney 5pm, Singapore 2pm, New Delhi 11:30am, and Moscow 10:00am).
In order to maximise the number of people who can attend the event, the Training Day does not have a fixed charge. If you are a student, if you can’t persuade you employer to pay, or if you live in a country where PayPal does not work, just register and attend. If you can afford to pay we like to invite you to make a donation towards the costs of the event.
Speakers on the day include sessions on Mobile Research, Ethnography, Online Communities, Conjoint Analysis, Segmentation, Online Questionnaire Design, and the use of Storytelling in market research presentation.
