National Conference Sponsorship

About the 2020 Conference

Our annual face to face Conference has been moved to an online virtual format this year due to COVID-19. We had just completed the full conference program when the COVID-19 restrictions were announced, so we are grateful to our fabulous Conference Chairs, Committee and Speakers for pivoting so quickly and agreeing to move the whole conference online.

To help people with work commitments and screen time, the virtual conference event will be run between 12 noon-3.30pm each day for 4 consecutive days (Monday 3rd August – 6th Thursday 2020) and will include local industry speakers as well as global keynote speakers. 12 hours of industry relevant content delivered to your computer.

As a thank you to all of our amazing Members and Company and Client Partners – this conference will be FREE to everyone who has renewed their membership or partnership with us for 2020-21.

The Research Society's National Conference has proven year after year that it is the must attend event for the Australian research, insights and analytics professions.

The Research Society’s National Conference is the single largest networking and professional development event in the market and social research industry calendar in the Southern Hemisphere.

As Covid-19 has altered our platform for live Conferences, we have taken the same content and pivoted onto a virtual platform. We have offered this experience to our Members for free, so we are expecting bumper attendance and engagement levels.

We have also discounted our usual Sponsorship Packages due to the quick pivot.
