The QRCA conference is the premier conference for everyone involved in the qualitative research industry, with unparalleled opportunities to connect and network with peers, expand and strengthen skill sets via hands-on collaborative practice, learn from the best of the best in the industry, and refresh your perspective and reinvigorate your practice with new methodologies, tools, and partners.

The theme of the 2017 QRCA conference is “The Power of Perspective.” As Qualitative Research Consultants (QRCs), our role is to better understand and channel the perspectives of our respondents for our clients. Los Angeles is the second-largest US city, teeming with people from all walks of life, and it is the film-making center of the world, where the entertainment industry creates new worlds for us, enabling us to see the world with new eyes. Using the city of LA as our backdrop, we look forward to empowering attendees to consider new perspectives in our work and how we see people everyday. Our speaker line-up includes a who’s who roster of QRCs as well as representatives from other fields (education and entertainment, to name just two), who will remind us of The Power of Perspective. We look forward to sharing this dynamic conference with you.
