The programme is packed with TV, radio, OOH, cinema, print, social media and digital. We also have papers about the use of insight within the strategy and planning process.

The Evening Classes are designed for new joiners to the media industry (up to three years' experience). They provide a good introduction to media research and the industry currencies. It will also benefit those researchers who have had little or no exposure to the different media currencies.

On the first evening (25th February), the MRG committee will host some networking drinks. We will provide drinks and snacks from 7.30pm until 9pm.

Also on the last evening, delegates are invited to join members of the MRG committee and speakers for drinks and canapes (from 5.30pm until 8pm).
