Thought Leader Series

Private, invitation only learning sessions hosted at ARF headquarters, the Thought Leader Series program provides the opportunity to exchange education, insights and new industry knowledge to a targeted audience. Based on the titles and verticals you are targeting, we’ll search through our database and invite 30 – 40 prospects to your session.


Weekly forums showcase industry best practices and introduce members to the latest thinking about advertising and marketing research. Forums focus on a range of topics, from Research Quality to Social Media, and take place either at the ARF or at a member-hosted location. Each forum is followed by a networking cocktail reception sponsored by a selected company.


The ARF Webcast Program is the most cost effective and efficient way to promote your research solutions and services to a highly engaged community of advertising research professionals. This series of virtual lunchtime presentations address hot issues in advertising and marketing research.
