The Marketing Research and Insight Excellence Awards Gala is the celebration of the marketing research and insights industry. Individual seats and tables of 10 are available. The gala is designed to boost the visibility and value of marketing research by celebrating some of the people and organizations that are raising the bar for the whole profession. All award winners will be announced live. 

The Awards Gala will take place at the The Edison Ballroom, located in the heart of Manhattan, only steps away from Times Square. Originally opened in the 1930s as the Grand Ballroom of the adjacent Edison Hotel, this historic venue reopened in 2008 after a multimillion-dollar renovation that preserved its original flair and art deco style.
