Conference 2021: Call for Papers

(Getting) Back On Track

It’s been a tumultuous 18 months for us all. Where we work, what work we do, seeing our loved ones, every part of our lives have been impacted in some way it seems.

At the MRG however we are excited now about what is to come, what have we learnt from this experience, what can we do better, what new techniques we adopted to make it easier for our clients or our respondents, or indeed what have we lost during the epidemic that we need to revive once again?

Now this year, we’d normally be aiming for pastures abroad for our conference, perhaps somewhere sunny, and that was the plan, but for obvious reasons, we’re having to be a bit more cautious. So this year we’re staying a little closer to home, but we can assure you no less exciting or action packed.  We’re delighted to inform you that the MRG conference this year will be in Edinburgh at the stunning Waldorf Astoria Caledonian Hotel, overlooking Edinburgh castle in all its glory. The hotel, formerly forming part of the grand rail station is an apt setting for our conference as we look as an industry to how we get back on track in what we do so well.

It promises to be an amazing conference, and we’re looking for the brightest and best papers from across the industry. We want to hear from you.

What projects you’re running now or have run in the last 12 months that celebrate the best of what we have to offer and how we as an industry are getting back on track in delivering world beating research to our clients.

The deadline for full submission is 31st August but we are looking for initial expressions of interest by 31st July, so do get in touch.

Final submissions can be any format but should keep to one side of A4 and be submitted by a fully paid-up member of the MRG. Please include details of your proposed presentation length and the names of all the presenters together with any other relevant information.  Please note that this will be an ‘in person’ conference, and we are not in a position to offer free conference tickets to presenters, so presenters should be expected to pay for a conference ticket to attend.

Expression of interest should be sent to and by 31st July with full submissions sent to Joe and Lou by 31st August.

Full details of the conference, and of course the awards, including how to book to be revealed shortly.
