About

The Audience Analytics & Insight events were launched by Belinda Barker and Clare Dewhirst, bringing together their knowledge of the media research, digital media, and events sector to meet a perceived industry need.

Working with advertisers, media agencies, and media owners across our other projects, we are frequently hearing about the disjoint between data analytics and traditional research, the need to develop the right skills to ensure that data provides real insight value, and the need to understand which of the plethora of new technology solutions will actually provide the answers.  Developed in partnership with Advisory Board members working at the sharp end - in client, agency and media owner data, insight, and strategy teams –  the  Audience Analytics & Insight events are designed to provide a forum to find the answers to these challenges. 

In 2019, we are delighted to have come together with Jillian Ney, the UK’s leading social media intelligence expert, to add her expertise and develop a new add-on event with a focus on the ethical and effective use of social media audience data.  Our first joint Audience Analytics, Insight & Intelligence event, with a Social Intelligence Lab added to make a two day programme, will take place in New York in December.
