A Lot Can Change in Three Days of Transformative Thinking

QRCA’s 8th Biennial Worldwide Conference on Qualitative Research

The 8th biennial Worldwide Conference on Qualitative Research, presented by the Qualitative Research Consultants Association (QRCA), is the world’s largest international conference focused solely on qualitative research. If you’re serious about qualitative research — no matter how qual touches you — join us for this thought-provoking game changer. The conference will be held April 13-15, 2016, at the Vienna Marriott Hotel. Early registration rates are in effect until March 7, 2016.

The program has been expertly curated to offer the brainiest, most informative sessions — none of which have been seen before. The fast-paced immersive sessions mean you will be transformed by a symphony of thinking and discovery, and come away with a fresh slant on our world and qualitative work.

The team of 45 elite speakers from 15 countries and 5 continents includes a keynote presentation by Tamira Snell, noted futurist and senior consultant at the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies, “Mega Trends and what they Mean to You.” Qualitative research experts from across the globe will share innovative ideas. Attendees will have a great opportunity to make new connections with international colleagues and connect with old friends to expand qualitative skills.

QRCA’s enveloping warm spirit creates a welcoming environment like no other. The conference is open to anyone who is interested in “qual”: research buyers, marketing and strategy executives at advertising agencies, brand consultants, user experience and design firms — anyone focused on best practices for insight discovery.

Vienna’s rich history of nurturing intellectual, scientific, and artistic talent is the perfect setting to open your mind to the newest thinking in qualitative research. The conference hotel is conveniently located on central Vienna’s famed Ringstrasse, home to national cultural landmarks.
