The Festival provides a chance for those people who can’t attend conferences around the globe to catch up with what the opinion leaders and shapers are saying, showing, and sharing.

Listen Live, or Listen Later
If you can listen live, that is the best way to be part of the event, joining in the Q&A and enjoying the feedback via Twitter. But, you can also enjoy the event via listening later, register for the events you are interested in to be sent an update when the slides and recordings are available.
In Sydney with IIeX
Following the announcement by GreenBook and NewMR of increased co-operation and joint-working, the IIeX event in Sydney, 4-5 December is a full part of the Festival. The chair of IIeX will be Ray Poynter, and many faces familiar from NewMR will be taking part, for example Sue York and Navin Williams will be running a master class on mobile messaging and market research. After broadcasting from Toronto on the Monday for NewMR, Annie Pettit is hot footing it down to Sydney to be taking part in the live, face-to-face celebration of innovation in market research.
