World’s Top Brands to gather in Singapore for Qualitative Research Event
There is a reason why Singapore is a growing consumer insight hub in Asia. As Western markets continue to face economic challenges, many top brands are heading to Asia for growth. Most western brands still struggle to understand the tastes and cultural differences of the large growing Asian market. With Singapore’s status as the regional financial hub and favourable government policies towards businesses, many chose Singapore as their headquarters and as a stepping stone to regional markets.
At the 5th Qualitative 360 conference, global brands and agencies will convene in Singapore on November 19-21 to discuss the challenges and opportunities for using qualitative marketing research for driving retail, marketing and new product development strategies. The forum intends to inform businesses of new qualitative techniques and how these new tools can help companies better understand their own brands and customers.
