Today is the first day of the two-day ESOMAR APAC Conference in Melbourne, although for me it started a day earlier with the Advanced Quant workshop that Jon Pinnell and I ran. The reception last night was a welcome mix of familiar faces and new faces.
As well as the formal sessions there are two social events that I will be involved in and if you are in Melbourne I hope to see you at one or both.
Monday 5:30pm, 'Meet the author', as part of the networking drinks ESOMAR have organised a meet the author event for people to buy copies of my book, The Handbook of Online and Social Media Research, and to have a chat with me about the book.
Tuesday 6:00pm, Colmar Brunton Trivia night, this event is a social event being hosted at the Melbourne offices, quite close to the Conference location and will provide a great chance for delegates new to Melbourne with a chance to unwind, with drinks and a light-heated trivia quiz (with the chance to win prizes). If you'd like to attend Download Trivia night for more information.
Quick declaration of interest, Colmar Brunton are a client of mine, indeed if you are still in Melbourne on Friday you see me presenting with Colmar Brunton at the AMI/AMSRS "Social Media Killed the Media Star" event.
