Nominations for the Insight250 awards have officially opened for the 2023 edition. The Insight250 features leaders, innovators, visionaries, and pioneers from around the world who are elevating and enhancing market research, consumer intelligence, and data-driven marketing.

The 2022 Insight250 Winners were announced at ESOMAR’s 75th Annual Congress in Toronto, Canada. In 2023 the awards will be announced on International Market Research Week at the beginning of May.

In 2023, an international jury of judges will again be led by WiRE Founder and current ESOMAR President Kristin Luck alongside Insight250 Chairman and mTab CEO Mark Langsfeld. ESOMAR’s global network of representatives will again assist in the shortlisting of nominees, and whilst no formal quotas will be applied, judges will look to represent the diverse and global nature of the profession (broadly in line with ESOMAR’s flagship Global Market Research publication). The full 2023 jury will shortly be announced.

Ideal Insight250 nominees have extensive accomplishments across a combination of professional experience, leadership, innovation, awards, research, writing, and industry involvement. Many previous winners are from within the academic, enterprise, agency, technology, consulting, association, and media sectors.

Nominations can be submitted in multiple languages at, which also provides a current list of 2022 and 2021 winners. You can also track the latest Insight250 news and updates on LinkedIn and Twitter. Simply search for ‘Insight250.’

Nikki Lavoie, President-elect of ESOMAR, “Celebrating innovation and expertise in market research from around the world has become essential, and the Insight250 is the marquee honor for this. I am thrilled that ESOMAR is such an instrumental part of the nomination and selection process.”

As Mark Langsfeld, Chairman of Insight250 and CEO of mTab, explained, “Since we started the Insight250 in late 2020, the two primary goals have been to unify the global market research and insights community and celebrate its accomplishments. This is why the nomination process is so essential; to help us identify and spotlight these advancements and the experts driving them.”

Crispin Beale, CEO of Insight250, added, “In a world where facts and the “truth” are increasingly under threat, the role of insights in championing evidence couldn’t be more important. The Insight250 celebrates those individuals leading, innovating, and keeping our profession at the frontline of the battle. These winners are true superstars, and it is right that we recognise their hard work and commitment.”

Dr. Parves Khan, ESOMAR Director General and CEO, added, “The Insight250 is the perfect way to celebrate the achievements of so many research and insights leaders around the globe."
