Research Rendezvous Providence

From 5:30 – 7:30 pm, Join market research colleagues at our local Providence NEIA Research Rendezvous Happy Hour!

What does ‘selling the research’ mean when you are the client? We’ll discuss that and more in The Selling of Research: A Client Perspective. Our mini-panel of client-based Insights professionals will share their experiences on what vendor selling looks like from the client side, as well as their internal influencing of business partners – from initiating the research to leveraging the results. Elias Soussou, Director of Analytics and Marketing Research at FGX International, and Scott Reina, Nielsen Client Manager embedded with the CVS Customer Insights team, will kick things off. Come be a part of the discussion!

Please join us for this casual gathering to share ideas, enjoy some great food and drink, and network in the relaxed atmosphere of the Black Sheep Pub in downtown Providence. These events are free, but each venue has a capacity limit. Please register below to reserve your seat (and ensure we order enough food)!

On September 12th, more than one hundred researchers from the New England, Greater New York and Philadelphia Chapters converged on the Big Apple for our 1st ever Three-Chapter Event! Great presenters – including our own Kathryn Korostoff from Research Rockstar – got us thinking, sharing and debating the research world of 2018, and how the industry will adapt for the future. Ken Berry of Jibunu serenaded us with his guitar at the post-event happy hour.
