Seminars & Events

Annual conferences are held in a three-year cycle: with AAPOR in North America (2016), in connection with either ESOMAR or ESRA in Europe (2017), and in the third year in a new location (2018). This arrangement permits WAPOR members to meet with academic, commercial, and government researchers from the main centers of survey research around the globe. Our most recent annual conference was held Lisbon, Portugal during the dates of July 15-17, 2017. Please feel free to download the final program for full conference details. More information can be found online at http://wapor.org/69th-annual-conference/.

The 71st Annual Conference has been scheduled for the dates of June 28-30, 2018 in Marrakech, Morocco. The call for abstracts and more information will be available soon.

Meetings to discuss professional and methodological issues are held at various locations around the world with the aim of bringing WAPOR programs closer to its members, wherever they may be. The most recent regional conferences were held in various locations. We recently held the VII Latin American Congress on Public Opinion in Monterrey, Mexico from October 12-14, 2016. More information about this always exceptional event can be found here. Our final conference of the year was held November 24-25, 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The theme was Political Trust in Contemporary Representative Democracies and you can find more information about the conference here. Regional meetings in recent years were held in Chile, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Poland, Italy, Slovenia, and Hong Kong.
