BC STUDENT NETWORKING AND SPEAKER EVENT: CALL FOR SPEAKERS AND SPONSORS

OCTOBER 19, 2017, METROPOLITAN HOTEL VANCOUVER

Join us this fall in Vancouver for a jam-packed Student Networking and Speaker Event! Employers can meet students and bring along teammates to learn new skills at the concurrent speaker session, and students will be able to meet representatives of industry-leading companies, and network and exchange information with them.

There are two ways you can take part: either by sponsoring a table or speaking at the event!

1. Sponsor a Table

Being a sponsor at a table means you have a seat with six potential up-and-comers in the market research industry! In the rotating table format, you’ll have a chance to speak one-on-one with students, provide mentorship and career tips, and potentially find new talent.

Table sponsors are $200 each, and table sponsors are allowed to bring up to three people from their company—two for the Speaker Event, and one for the Student Networking Event—and all can attend the networking reception afterward. 

If you are interested in taking part, click here.

Any questions? Contact Dan Jackson at djackson@mria-arim.ca

2. Speak at the Event

The BC Chapter is looking for thought-provoking speakers who are willing to share their knowledge and experience in research. This event is a wonderful opportunity to expose the wider research industry to how your organization is driving insights and delivering value in the ever-changing world of marketing research.
