Help Bring MR To SXSW!


Editor’s Note: Now this is just too cool! Qualvu, BrainJuicer, KL Communications, Mesh Planning, and media agency GSD&M are teaming up to try to get a research panel added to the lineup for SXSW. This is a great idea, because you can bet many industry competitors (present & future) within the BI industry will be there presenting as well. MR needs a makeover, and these companies combined with this event is a darn near perfect combination to start making that happen. I’m going to do everything I can to help support this: I hope you’ll join me by doing the same!

By the way, while you’re voting be sure to look at other panels as well; there are a ton of interesting topics being proposed. Perhaps we should plan for a special MR meet-up at SXSW this year? See you there…

In conjunction with other forward-thinking research companies (BrainJuicer, Mesh Planning, and KL Communications) and an advertising agency (GSD&M), we have submitted a panel idea for SXSWi 2012. SXSW has received 3,600 submissions and only 500 panels can make it to the event. So this post is to request your individual vote to make sure that this Market Research Panel makes it to this high-profile event. (For more about the event, visit:
