The 2017 MRS Awards: A glitzy and glamorous evening but IFF come away empty handed

The Market Research Society pulled out all the stops for this year’s industry awards at the fabulous, starlight Supernova venue in Embankment Gardens. Over 900 excited research professionals (including IFF’s team of 10!) were greeted to a champagne reception for the largest turnout in the awards history.

The evening was hosted by comedian Susan Calman of Strictly fame and after a 5-star meal we began to rattle through the 25 award categories across numerous research disciplines. There were plenty of worthy winners and enthusiastic celebrations and we couldn’t help but get our hopes up when it came to the Research Live category and our nomination for the Best Place to Work Award.

We won’t lie, we were very disappointed not to win (losing out to Opinium Research) but in true IFF spirit we took the opportunity to celebrate what was a proud achievement for our company and our team. We will continue to embrace the people first approach to business that so defines who we are (you can read more about why we were nominated for this award here).

We are honoured to have been nominated once again and would like to congratulate Opinium Research and all the other winners this year.
