Creating and maintaining a competitive advantage rests on the ability to understand and adapt to continually-evolving audience needs. Next week, over 700 research professionals will convene in Orlando for the Insights Association’s annual Corporate Researchers Conference.

Held at the Rosen Shingle Creek conference center in Orlando, CRC will offer six unique content tracks packed with fresh perspectives on the state of analytics and consumer insights. Among those tracks, DISQO’s very own Carl Van Ostrand will take the stage with Megan Copas of 84.51 to discuss how one leading retailer is elevating their insights by layering both behavioral and attitudinal data.

The session, titled “Solving for Online Grocery: Leveraging Passive Behavioral and In-the-Moment Attitudinal Data” will take place on Wednesday, October 23rd, at 1:45pm and explore:

  • Unique insights into online grocery shopping
  • How consumers search and build their baskets
  • How to transform behavioral data into key metrics
  • How to drive change and solve problems

Anyone interested in how brick & mortar businesses can leverage advanced insights to compete both in-store and online are encouraged to attend! For those who can’t make the talk, the DISQO team will also be available at booth 407 to chat about what’s next in consumer insights.

Of course, with over 100 speakers across 6 content tracks, there are a multitude of thought provoking sessions to choose from. Here are a few of the sessions we’re looking forward to:
