Amsterdam - 01 August 2023 - ESOMAR, the global community for data, research and insights, has finalised the programme for its flagship annual event, ESOMAR Congress, being held in Amsterdam 10-13 September 2023.

In addition, the conference will feature: a fascinating keynote address by the European Space Agency and a dive into how people make choices everyday by behaviourial science expert and author Richard Sutton - plus presentations by professor and author Jenni Romaniuk, International Director of the world-famous Ehrenberg-Bass Institute; and Amelia Kallman, leading futurist, speaker, and author who was recently named one of the 'Top 25 Women in the Metaverse'.

We can’t wait to see everyone here in our hometown.” 

Speakers will share stories from around the world that illustrate the power of insights, as well as the importance of building human understanding, empathy and sustainability alongside the thoughtful implementation of new technology, such as AI. Also included are sessions covering how to apply data to build better strategies for branding and communications; the newest sustainability initiatives; learnings from the Metaverse; special pre-conference in-depth workshops led by experts from Kantar, Human8 and Numerious; and more. Attendees will learn practical skills and transformative approaches to take back to the workplace and supercharge market research initiatives with new energy.

ESOMAR Congress 2023 will also offer a huge array of opportunities for networking in its colorful hometown, including a visit to Heineken and a soirée at the Fabrique des Lumières, a creative space that brings together art, culture, and technology, offering an immersive and interactive experience to all attendees. The exhibit hall will be filled with industry leaders and business appointments can be set via the conference app to meet with attending companies during the four-day event.
