A multi-channel, multi-platform event for global market research

This year’s ESOMAR Congress in Toronto is postponed to 2021. In its place, a new digital event will fill the physical void from 14 – 17 September 2020: the Insights Festival. The digital festival is presented by the data, research and insights community and powered by ESOMAR.

ESOMAR announces the Insights Festival as “(…) an extravaganza of curated and community generated content, conversations, social gatherings, debates and campaigns celebrating the data, research and knowledge community and its contribution to our businesses and our daily lives”.

It will be the community’s first global and digital festival on ESOMAR-powered platforms and parts of the Fringe Festival will be streamed live across all major social media channels and beyond.

In addition to the Main Stage, a variety of roundtables, social gatherings, workshops, discussions and debates are planned, powered by ESOMAR and provided by partners to bring this online festival to life. Festival-goers can attend any of the Fringe events for free.

Until 14.08.2020 you can still register your own idea for social gatherings, workshops, presentations, or discussion groups.


Director General Finn Raben provides an update to the ESOMAR community on ESOMAR’s COVID-19 support activities and the path forward together into recovery.

We are looking forward to be there virtually this year and next year personally in Toronto!
