Best of - India 2012


Mumbai / 2-3 July



The increase of sophisticated technologies and online advances has had a huge impact on business, society, and more specifically, on the research industry. INdianNOVATION will explore these developments and will discuss our industry’s role in actively and successfully applying these tools for business.

This event is perfect for managers and younger members of the MR industry. Take advantage of this unique training opportunity with international and local speakers to connect and gain further skills and exposure to international concepts – all without travelling outside India.

This event offers the local market research industry opportunity to hear award winning speakers such as John Kearon, talking about digital communities, Betty Adamou on the new trend on Gamification, and Malte Friedrich-Freska on the mobile revolution. Caroline Winnett will present on "Secrets for selling to the subconscious" and Sven Arn will share his experience on Qualitative Research. The day also features local talent such as Girish Venkatachalia from IBM and Kalyan Karmakar from TNS and Govindraj Ethiraj, Founder Editor-In-Chief at the television channel Bloomberg UTV.

We are also proud to announce an addition to our programme this year – a one-day Qualitative Research workshop by Sven Arn, Managing Director and Partner at H,T,P, Concept (Germany) on 2 July.
