AMSRS events for the end of 2018: We are going out with a bang!

In the lead up to the end of 2018 AMSRS has a suite of events around Australia, including professional development courses, state conferences and end of year events. Don’t miss your opportunity to be involved and attend one of these great networking opportunities in your state.

The courses cover key aspects of our profession – spanning both qualitative and quantitative research, and with a focus on subjects and content that are directly applicable. The face to face courses throughout the year will deliver valuable new knowledge and skills so that delegates can keep pace with a rapidly changing marketplace.

The AMSRS has again teamed up with South Australian Universities and TAFE SA to organise the Student Awards 2018. Students following market research courses were invited to take part in a contest to select upcoming talents in South Australia. Come and hear the top students in market research present their ideas, and get the opportunity to meet them face to face. The best students will be presented with an award on the night.

AMSRS will present its inaugural annual conference for buyers, users and suppliers of research and evaluation on 1 November 2018, at University House on campus at ANU. The conference will focus on the use and impact of research in the government context, but also within the ACT community. Sessions will explore the unique and common issues of conducting research to inform government policy and practice – as well as showcasing some of the most influential, innovative and enjoyable research that has been conducted out of Canberra.

A joint event conducted by the Australasian Evaluation Society, the Australian Market and Social Research Society and Griffith University to grow the capacity of market and social research and evaluation by collaborating across networks.

There are many factors influencing the decisions that people make. Behavioural Insights (BI), (also known as ‘behavioural economics’ or ‘nudge theory’) recognises this. Unlike the traditional economic and market theory seeing people as rational actors, BI recognises that how decisions are presented affects our choices, that our decision-making is influenced by what others are doing, and that despite our best intentions our decision are often neither deliberate nor rational.

The AMSRS WA State Conference is the “can’t miss” event in 2018 for the Western Australian Division. As an industry we come together to increase the standard, ethics and understanding of market & social research with peers, clients and our partner industries such as advertising and marketing, along with our academic friends.

  • Time: 12:30pm registration for a 1pm start – 5:00pm
  • networking drinks running after the conference from 5:00pm – 6:00pm
  • Venue: Four Points by Sheraton Perth, 707 Wellington Street, Perth

The state AGM & Seminar is free for members, however it is essential that you register.

This event will also be live-streamed. We look forward to seeing you there.
