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 20 events a year, covering the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific, with a growing membership of 10,000 members worldwide.

The Research Club is a not for profit organisation.
