  • 100% will recommend the GIA Conference to others
  • 55% rated the conference as “Very good”, 45% said it was “Good”

According to the delegates, the GIA Conference has proven itself to be an Industry event that raises the professional bar for all market intelligence practitioners.

“The GIA conference in Helsinki was by far the most productive and beneficial intelligence conference I’ve attended in the past few years. Unlike other events, the GIA conference had relevant content for beginners, intermediate and advanced practitioners in the intelligence field,” said Troy Pfeffer, Market Intelligence Director at Cintas Corporation.

“GIA’s Market Intelligence conference represented for Demag Cranes, an excellent opportunity to benchmark its market intelligence activities as well as exchanging best practices within the global market intelligence community. Speakers and workshop themes were well chosen and widened the professional horizon,” added Michael Jackson, Head of Corporate Market Research at Demag Cranes AG.

"I found the GIA conference in Helsinki to be informative, inspiring and a good opportunity to meet other market intelligence professionals from a wide variety of industries," said Roy Vågeskar, a Market Analyst at Jotun Coatings.

In addition to the high quality program content, one much valued characteristic of the GIA Conference was the friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere among the participants that helped set the spirit of the workshops, conference presentations and evening programs. The large gathering of intelligence professionals and executives agreed that benchmarking one’s in-house efforts against world-class organizations in different industries and geographies is the best way to perfect one’s intelligence programs. The warm atmosphere in the conference went a long way in facilitating this benchmarking and connecting intelligence professionals around the globe. Feedback will be taken into account when preparing the program contents for upcoming GIA Conferences.

The next GIA Conference will be held in New York, United States and following that, in Amsterdam:

  • GIA Conference New York: November 8-10, 2010
  • GIA Conference Amsterdam: May 23-25, 2011
