You Are Destined to Be Transformed!

3 Days of Transformative Thinking

As researchers, our job is to study the present — to objectively observe what’s happening in front of us, in real time, and to make recommendations about the future of our clients’ businesses. We do our damnedest, dutifully.

But. Have you ever felt the weight of a big honkin' business decision—the kind that could make, or break, your client’s business? Have you ever wished you had a crystal ball in that instant, to whip out just before you hit “send” to be sure the future aligns with what you’re seeing today?

If so, you’re among friends. QRCA friends, to be exact. And we’ve got your back (or, more accurately, your front) on this.

We heart you, you see, and it just so happens we heart the future as well. To prove it to you, we’ve invited Tamira Snell (Top Dog Futurist from the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies in Denmark to be the Keynote Speaker at our Worldwide Conference on Qualitative Research, in Vienna, Austria, April 13-15. She said yes! She said yes! Our prediction? Amazing.

Travel to Europe from the U.S. is less expensive than it’s been in more than a decade. QRCA hasn’t raised its rates for the conference in several years. Our conference registration fee is the same as it was for the Budapest conference!

mercer report

According to the most recent Mercer Report (23 February 2016), Vienna ranks top in the world for overall quality of living — including internal stability, crime figures, and safety costs. No particular vaccines are needed to visit Vienna. The First District, where our conference hotel is located, is commonly known as the City Center. It is very walkable and it’s where many Viennese go to shop and take in the cultural attractions. QRCA’s conference website offers links to help you plan your trip.
