At the heart of The Research Club is our desire to connect people within the Market Research Industry. We host a series of business networking events which provide the opportunity to make new contacts, develop national and international business opportunities and keep up to date with the latest industry developments. Whether you are a provider from the supply side based in Asia, a full service agency based in New York or an end client user of research, there’s nothing we like better than bringing people together for their mutual benefit. We’ve been connecting people since 2007 and believe that this style of networking is key to building strong relations. Accordingly, we widen our geographical reach to new markets and collaborate with the many of the industry’s leading conference organisations. We now host up to 30 events a year, covering the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific, with a growing membership of 15,000 members worldwide.

    Elfriede Meyer-Roennau Founder & Managing Directorat random International -

    “We have been sponsors of the Research Club since it started, expanding from London all over Europe and the rest of the World in 2010. This is the place to be, if you want to connect with inspiring people from the market research industry, to meet old friends and new clients. For us, this is the most effective way of networking there is. And most of all: it's fun!”

  • Cindy Cunningham

    Cindy Cunningham Vice-PresidentC&C Market Research Inc -

    “C&C has been attending and sponsoring The Research Club events for about 5 years now and we cannot think of a better way to network with fellow colleagues and clients. The Research Club events are usually more beneficial for networking purposes than the conferences. We have met many new clients as well as forged lifelong friendships with The Research Club.”

Their support was above and beyond what we had expected. We will definitely be sponsoring future Research Club events.”
