Market Intelligence, Candid Solutions, Peer Camaraderie 

Engage in this unique forum for marketing research and data analytics leaders…and grow your business. It’s not about buzzwords, it’s all about your business—how you manage it day-to-day and how you grow it long term.

Join us for this rare opportunity to discuss critical industry and business management issues with the research community's top business and thought leaders.

ILC attracts research company leaders to have candid, quality conversations with their peers, to hear from expert, objective speakers, explore new paths to growth – in the surroundings and with the impeccable service provided by a premier venue. 

We’ll spotlight what it takes to succeed now and identify what research firms must do to excel in the future. What skills must your employees master? Does your corporate culture need an attitude adjustment? How do you reconcile required scientific rigor with the need to test new methods and technologies? How do you meet the shifting expectations of clients? How can insurgent thinking and behavior enable your team to adopt very different – and necessary – business models?

As A Senior Leader, You Need To Justify Your Time Out Of The Office. At This Conference, That’s Easy To Do.

Be in the company of your fellow business leaders and participate in high-level, objective presentations and discussions on the topics that matter most to you. Surrounding you are business intelligence leaders from around the globe. To encourage interaction, we have carved out ample time for networking. 

At this event, you will enjoy first-class breakfasts, lunches, dinner, catered breaks and cocktail receptions that are included with your registration and make this an unsurpassed value in the industry.

Ideal for: CEOs, Presidents, COOs, SVPs and other senior or promising executives of marketing research and analytics companies and affiliated businesses.

Business development opportunities abound for providers of goods and services to full-service research firms.

We trust that this event provides inspiration and knowledge to energize you and your business. We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
