Event update: Asia Pacific 2020 becomes APAC Insights Festival

Ever since our last communication with you, we have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in ​India, which was due to host our Asia Pacific conference this year. Sadly, it seems as if the region is suffering same as many others...and the strict preventive lockdown by the local government is making travel and gatherings of more than just family members, almost impossible.

We have now consulted with the Market Research Society of India (MRSI) and the venue we were planning to use. And, on the basis of their advice, we have – very regretfully – decided to delay the physical event, in order to best safeguard the health and well-being of our members and delegates. While we wait for better news in relation to vaccines, travel and conference budgets, we will be continue to hold our dates towards our interactions, albeit in a digital mode. Hence, we would be running a digital Asia Pacific Insights Festival on the announced dates 1 – 3 November 2020, to ensure the community can continue to share thoughts, ideas and best practices! The entry to this digital event would be completely free for all ESOMAR and MRSI members. For non-members, there'd be a nominal charge.

At this time, it does remain our intention to host an event in New Delhi but clearly, we are dependent on receiving more definitive local advice and guidance on the most appropriate time which at the moment is difficult to predict. Nonetheless, we will continue to stay in regular contact with all of our members in the region, friends and advisors, and keep you updated of news/progress regarding any face-to-face event.
