NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In presentations at the premiere consumer insights event of the year,
GfK will look closely at consumers’ evolving uses of media and the
changing expectations and applications of market research itself. The
Market Research Event (TMRE) will be held November 2 through 4 in
Orlando, Florida.

GfK will take a variety of opportunities to share and socialize results
from its new “The Future of Insights” study, developed in collaboration
with the Institute for International Research (IIR). Through interviews
with over 700 consumer insights clients and suppliers, the report shows
where market research is today and will be heading in the next two years.

GfK’s David Krajicek (CEO, Consumer Experiences North America) will
present topline results
from the study in a keynote session that
kicks off the conference, at 8:45AM on November 2. And at 4:30PM the
next day (November 3), GfK will host roundtable discussions focused on
key questions and themes from the “Future of Insights,” such as

  • “Are clients and suppliers aligned on top goals for 2016?”
  • “Which is more important: Innovation or speed?”
  • “Does risk plus innovation equal reward?”
