Not unlike Hollywood, a young Marketing professional and a Market Researcher meet, fall in love and get married. And when they kiss and lightning strikes, their souls exchange bodies.

Congress Day 0: The Future of Market Research
Although not technically the first day of Congress, Sunday offered the opportunity for ESOMAR Congress delegates to attend workshops on a variety of topics that served as an excellent introduction to Congress, starting the week off strong with intriguing, thought-provoking, and challenging topics that face the market research industry today.
