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 – next year in Berlin, continuing the festival of research, tech and innovation 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.

Check out our main events coming up this year:
