Toluna Assembles Global Thought Leaders to Discuss Future of Market Research

Company to Host 'The Future is Now' Summit in Paris, 6 October 2010

PARIS, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Global online panel leader Toluna, has announced it is to host a roundtable summit on the future of market research.

Titled 'The Future is Now,' the event, conceived by Toluna to mark its 10-year anniversary, will take place at The Eiffel Tower, Paris, on 6 October 2010. Toluna will bring together high-profile speakers and senior level executives to focus on the implications of current and future change agents and how they can be harnessed to evolve the market research industry. Forty C-level executives from top market research agencies and client companies worldwide will be in attendance.

    The event boasts a number of featured speakers including:

    David Rowan - Editor, Wired Magazine
    Andrei Broder - Chief Scientist, Search and Advertising, Yahoo!
    OrliYakuel - Blogger and Co-Founder of Go2web

"The research industry, like many others, has evolved dramatically over the past ten years - but it is just the beginning. As the world continues to pick up speed, a myriad of new forces are already making themselves felt; the explosion of smartphone usage, social media, and the principles of co-creation to name but a few," says David Rowan, Editor, Wired Magazine, and Roundtable chair. "Toluna is bringing together thought leaders from within, and outside the research industry, to identify exactly where the market is today, where it will be tomorrow, and most importantly, where the opportunities lie."

"We know that our landscape is changing; what's important is to identify how we can turn these changes into opportunities to drive client performance, whether that means bringing companies closer to their consumers or improving customer experience," added Frederic-Charles Petit, Founder and CEO of Toluna. "To uncover the answers, we're looking beyond the confines of our own industry and sharing information. We hope this event will evolve both the industry and its practices."

Whilst the event is invitation-only, Toluna will be providing its clients, partners and the wider industry with content produced from the event. Also available will be a video montage compiled of interviews with key influencers on their predictions for the industry, conducted by Toluna during the course of this year.
