2. Savannah, Georgia

No sterile conference hotel backdrops here, this city has personality and soul. The lush, evergreen and ever-growing city of Savannah, Georgia, is known as the first planned city in America and our conference hotel is on the bank of the Savannah River. We can’t think of a better atmosphere to explore our own paths into new qualitative methods, navigate new technology and discover better or different directions to set our sails.

The QRCA Annual Conference is a mix of top veterans and bright newcomers, coming together to talk about joys, challenges, and solutions in qualitative research. You’ll learn from our excellent speakers, as well as from your fellow attendees.

4. Stronger Together

First-timers are often stunned by the amount of sharing that happens at this conference. We may be peer rivals, but we are all interested in enhancing the contribution and status of qualitative research in our industry.

The Marketplace offers a wide range of exhibitors, showcasing the latest tools and top-rated facilities. Meet up to 40 of them face-to-face. BONUS: Spotlights — scheduled presentations by a select group of new product/service providers, to make sure you know about the latest and greatest.

BONUS — Surprises!

There are so many reasons, we couldn’t just pick 5.
