WAPOR organizes meetings to discuss professional and methodological issues by holding conferences and regional seminars at various locations around the world, with the aim of bringing WAPOR programs closer to its members, wherever they may be.
Annual conferences are held in a three-year cycle: with AAPOR in North America, in connection with either ESOMAR or ESRA in Europe, and in the third year in a new location. This arrangement permits WAPOR members to meet with academic, commercial, and government researchers from the main centers of survey research around the globe.
We also hold regional conferences in various locations, most recently in Moscow (Russia), Monterrey (Mexico) and Barcelona (Spain). Once again our aim is to promote not only the importance of conducting scientifically sound public-opinion research, but also how this information can be useful to society and its various publics around the globe. The most recent regional conference was WAPOR Asia Kuala Lumpur 2020. Click here to find out more! WAPOR Asia 2020
