14 reasons to visit Toronto in addition to sharing your expertise at ESOMAR congress in September


From September 13 to 16, 2020, Toronto is going to be incredible! That’s because we’re expecting a few thousand of our best friends from around the world to join us for ESOMAR congress!

Submissions to speak at ESOMAR are due by January 31, 2020 so make sure to get yours in quickly. If sharing your unique insights with a thousand friends isn’t incentive enough, check out just a few of the fantastic things you can do while you’re in Toronto:


  1. From September 10 to 20, take in the Toronto Film Festival – We call it TIFF, one word. It sells out quickly so if you know you want to partake, you MUST plan ahead. Tickets for regular folks go on sale June 17 and September 7. You need to be at your computer with your credit ready.
