Being able to be part of the Future Talent Meets the Industry programme is truly a unique experience. Having the chance to attend LATAM and Congress this year was a privilege. Not only did it open my eyes to understand the market research industry in a way that I hadn’t before, but I was also able to learn and grow both professionally and personally.

The conferences gave me the opportunity to understand more in depth some of the new trends of the market and what’s going on in the industry. I was also able to meet some wonderful people, who took their time to talk with me and share their experiences, give me advice and answer my many questions (and believe me, I am a very curious person who asks a lot!)

In summary, at the ESOMAR Congress 2016 I learned, had fun, met many amazing people and now I come back to Colombia inspired, with plenty of ideas, with a head full of dreams and a heart full of passion for the fantastic world of market research.

If you asked me to sum up everything in just a few words, I would say “#WOW, Now that’s a Market Research Congress”.

Thank you so much for allowing students and young people to be part of these magnificent events. You’ll never imagine the impact it has on our lives.

This three day event was totally beyond my expectation. I felt supported and cared for by ESOMAR team. All of you are so nice and gave me great help! I also learned by seeing how your team works and understand how difficult it is to hold this kind of event. Even just a really simple idea or activity can be hard to communicate with participants if we didn't find a good way and timing. I tried to network, to learn from the experts, to know more about the industry. You brought the world to the conference, and I was so lucky to be there. I met the best people and know better what is happening now in the market research industry. Everything is so incredible.

Yu-Ying Yang, Student, National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan - Asia Pacific 2016, Tokyo

It was one of the best experiences that I have ever had, especially here in Japan.

Now I can proudly say that my future career will definitely be in the marketing research field. Such an interesting and important area.

I still want to thank you very much for giving me the opportunity of being one of the team of such a great event.
Thanks to this event I made a great network, which will help me a lot in my future career, especially starting from next September, when I will be in my second year of my MBA and therefore start job hunting.
Moreover, thanks to this great event, I made a lot of friends from all over the world, and especially from Netherlands.

With ESOMAR APAC I really got the true experience of event management skills, with help of the ESOMAR colleagues. They were really friendly, helpful and taught us a lot. The 3 day experience with your team and now knowing more about ESOMAR, I am really motivated to join ESOMAR become a part of the ESOMAR team.

Dilip Singh, International University Of Japan (IUJ), International University of Japan, Japan - Asia Pacific 2016, Tokyo

An amazingly chaotic, incredibly insightful event. As a volunteer I got exposure to the top companies in the market research field, not only to see what they are doing but to talk personally to those leading the way. I would recommend the programme to anyone. From the networking opportunities to the presentations I got to attend I learnt so much!

Jill Watkins, Bachelor of Business Studies, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland - Congress 2015, Dublin

I can recommend the FTMI programme to anyone who is interested in marketing in general and marketing research in particular. I was able to attend an incredible range of fascinating talks that are relevant for my research and made a number of very valuable contacts to boot. The team always treated us like another part of ESOMAR staff, which really made working with you all a great experience. The whole congress was just amazingly well organised – thanks again for the opportunity!

Ana-Isabel Noelke, PhD in Management, University of Edinburgh, UK - Congress 2015, Dublin

The conference gave us new insights into the industry and the future challenges and opportunities the industry will face. It was especially nice to talk to industry professionals and network with like-minded people. The conference definitely sparked my interest in marketing research and I aspire to attend the conference as a future delegate.

ESOMAR was that kind of experience that you want to come alive again every single time. More than conferences, the environment that the company and its people provide made the event a unique experience for everybody. It was a pleasure to share that amazing time with many talented people that became our inspiration to build a path, which journey will take us to different places where curiosity will drive the encouragement of making research.
Thanks for the opportunity ESOMAR

Maria Jose Torres Parrales, Universidad de Especialidades Espíritu Santo, Guayaquil, Ecuador - Latin America 2015, São Paulo

Participating in ESOMAR's event was more than participating in a conference. It was a full experience of new ideas, new people and even new places to see. The high quality conference opened my eyes in different ways, which is something I am very thankful of. I am happy for being part of such a great intellectual deployment. But, above this, I am happy for having met wonderful people, from ESOMAR's members to the other students - who, I am happy to say this, are now my friends. Thanks ESOMAR for giving us this opportunity, I hope that other students as me will have the chance.
