#WOW: Call for Speakers!
Deadline for submissions: 29 January 2016

In 2014 we asked what inspired you. In 2015 we invited you to define, discover and delight at the latest revelations from around the world. For our 69th international annual Congress in 2016 we continue the story with transformation and impact at its heart, by inviting you to #WOW us in New Orleans!

#WOW us...with your stories of conducting research from around the world, share learnings that will shape the research agenda of the future.
#WOW us...with new ways of gathering, analysing, using data and communicating insights.
#WOW us...with your experience outside of research for a fresh injection of ideas so that united, we can drive innovative decision-making and insights.

Let’s get together to create a viral impact for a groundbreaking future! Become a global #WOW!

You can #WOW us! Yes, you...

No matter your position in your organisation, if you are creating impact and WOW through your work with consumers and data – we want to hear from you! Be it as a researcher, analyst, data scientist, consultant, sales and marketing specialist, decision-maker or academic.

Perhaps you are a start-up or a developer wishing to share your vision, perhaps you are a rising star undecided if a career in research and analytics is for you. If you can #WOW us, we want to hear from you!

Please note if you feel your contribution doesn’t warrant a full research paper or you would prefer to present in a language other than English – ESOMAR is very happy to discuss options.
#WOW us by 29 January!

#WOW, New Orleans!

What better city to unite over 1000 participants from 80 countries on a theme that is an expression of excitement and admiration. A response to actions that demand courage, reinvention and determination resulting in surprising outcomes and impact that makes a difference. The host city, known not only for being a melting pot of influences and cultures that have fused to create a unique identity has also been a hotspot for reinvention, regeneration, transformation and growth across the last decade.
