May and June are always a flurry of industry events. And Voxco attends as many of them as possible – the level of insight that can be gained and connections that can be made via networking at these events is unmatched. Roll the highlights reel!
In May, Vincent and Jeb attended AAPOR in Austin. There is literally no better event for hearing North American pollster thought leaders share what’s trending in the world of public opinion and survey research. It’s awesome to have detailed conversation about survey strategy with people who love the topic as much as we do – shout out to a few clients we spent time with there: NORC, Precision Opinion, Siena College, Recon MR and Roanoke College.
At the end of May, Voxco had a different kind of event experience. C2 Montréal is one of the largest and most influential business conferences in North America, and it happens right here in our home town. We reached out to C2 this year and offered our platform and our professional scripting services to help them get a better attendee feedback system than they had been getting from the lower-end DIY platform they used in years past. For the first time, they combined post-event online surveys with in-the-moment mobile interviews, which gave them a much more robust level of feedback. Keep an eye out for a more detailed client success story, coming soon.
Speaking of Voxco having the home field advantage, MRIA was also held in Montreal this year. Two and a half jam-packed days of Canadian-focused #MRX insight from some of the premier industry thought leaders. Our booth was a center of attention both for our own clients and new friends we met for the first time. The Canadian crowds always put a smile on our faces, and it was awesome to welcome them to our own city!
New this year was our first appearance at ICES-V just last week. The once-every-four-years International Conference on Establishment Surveys brought us into contact with a number of leading statisticians from across Europe and the world. Our CEO, Raymond, is especially numbers-savvy, so he was gleefully absorbed with talking shop with many of the world’s leading national statisticians. The advanced professional capability of our platform really drew in the crowds to the Voxco booth and software demonstration, and we can’t wait to tailor a the right platform for many of them.
So now the summer is here. And with it comes a short lull in industry events. As we put our nose to the grindstone and plan our run up to Fall and our first few conferences (ESOMAR and others) it’s nice to have a short moment of focus on what matters: making killer multichannel survey tools. But gosh do we love the chance to share our survey nerdery with like-minded industry colleagues! 😉
