Passionate, Genuine Discussions That Spark Ideas, Solutions & Friendships

The Canadian Advisory Council of the Insights Association is thrilled to invite you to attend our first-ever CEO Summit Canada.

Long a flagship forum attracting chief executives from marketing research companies, we’re excited to host this unique event in Toronto, Canada’s world-class business nexus.

Tangible solutions to the toughest insights business problems draw leading executives to CEO Summits year after year, but the process of arriving at answers – through thoughtful conversations and collaborative peer discussions – is what makes this event unlike any other.

A keen focus on the future – revealing trends and innovations presented by partnered clients – makes the event essential to decision-makers leading insights and data analytics businesses or departments.

What makes this program as entertaining as it is valuable is its intimacy, candor, lively banter and unpredictable twists and turns. That’s all part of the design; spontaneous, genuine, high-level dialogue that leads in all directions yielding attendee satisfaction higher than any other Insights Association conference.

The Summit is designed for C-level executives of marketing research and data analytics firms as well as corporate insights and data analytics function leaders who must stay ahead of global industry issues and who seek business partnerships to improve their capabilities, deliverables and value.

Be challenged and enjoy open, honest and energetic conversations with the brightest minds the insights and data analytics industry has to offer.

Join us! This event is expected to sell out as attendance is strictly limited to ensure attendee success. We look forward to welcoming you at the Omni King Edward in Toronto!
