A Global Network

With various global and regional events
and an active online presence, ESOMAR ensures
you stay connected to fellow market researchers
and the latest developments within the industry.


We run 52 global and local research events a year, bringing researchers together to share the latest industry trends, methods & developments, to encourage debate, and to network with researchers from around the world. From Asia Pacific, to Latin America and everything in-between, our events span the world – bringing you the latest innovations from the research community. (TIP: Young ESOMAR Society Pro’s have preferential rates for the events – save up to EUR 1400 on your Congress registration or other events by becoming a YES member!)

Our main event of the year, ESOMAR Congress, is one of the biggest in the industry – with 1,200+ data, insights and research professionals attending from all over the world – and in 2019, is being held in Edinburgh, continuing the festival of research, tech and innovation that it is renowned for, with its new content formats, parties, unplugged stages and YES activities! (TIP: all Young ESOMAR Society members have on-demand access to all our event videos!).

And, our local events bring the best of our global content to the local research community, for free (TIP: if you’re a YES member, find out how to help out at a local event). We’re a non-profit organisation, so any revenue we make from our events goes straight back into the research industry, allowing us to continue our work.

We celebrate those within the industry that have shown excellence through a number of awards each year (ESOMAR Research Effectiveness Award, for example) . At each one of our events, we also give out a ‘Best Presentation Award’ and nominate the ‘ESOMAR Excellence Award for the Best Paper’ which gets entered to win Best Paper of the year.

And, if you’re 35 or younger and a YES member (or willing to become one 😉 ) , then we have one award especially for you!
