BIG News & Events
The BIG Forum is part of the Business Intelligence Group (BIG) and exists to provide business-to-business researchers with an opportunity to meet and exchange views with their colleagues in an informal setting. Events include presentations by a variety of speakers, and represent a chance to 'network' with your friends and colleagues while catching up on the latest thinking in business-to-business research.
BIG Forums are each worth 1 CPD hour on the MRS's CPD scheme.
For events other than Forum (which does not require a booking), please book your place with Fiona Roberts-Miller
