Intellicast S6E12: Was the IA Annual the Best Conference Ever?


Welcome back to Intellicast! In today’s episode, Brian Lamar and Producer Brian cover the latest market research news and give a recap/teaser of some conferences!

The episode kicks off with a chat about the upcoming IIeX conference at the end of May. Producer Brian will be speaking as he was named to the Greenbook Futures List. We’re all familiar with Producer Brian and his awesome work behind the scenes so we’re excited to see him on the main stage for a change! Brian Lamar shares some insight from his experience at IIeX and Producer Brian gives a little taste of his upcoming session.

In the second segment, Brian and Brian discuss the latest market research news including the announcement that Big Village has sold its Insights and Agency Business to Blue Mountain Media for $20M and the latest Bellwether report by the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising which found that UK market research spending fell by a net 3.2% in Q1 of 2023. The Brians discuss what that might mean for us here in the US.

The episode closes with an overview of what Brian Lamar says is now his favorite conference he’s ever been to, the Insights Association Annual Conference, in Hilton Head. Find out more about Brian’s session with Chuck Miller of DM2, the IA NCC being named Chapter of the Year, what made this conference the best ever, why he had to rent a bike, and more! It’s really the best recap of a conference you can get.
