At Conference Research with Nephrologists
This was a particularly challenging project to recruit for as the interviews needed to take place during the day whilst the conference sessions were in progress
Challenge Our client was looking to undertake 75 minute IDIs with attendees at the ERA/EDTA conference in Vienna. Our client commissioned us to recruit and interview the respondents, arrange an off-site venue close to the conference centre and arrange transport for the respondents. The respondents needed to be from a mix of EU5 markets. There was no delegate list available to recruit from.
This was a particularly challenging project to recruit for as the interviews needed to take place during the day whilst the conference sessions were in progress and we were therefore requiring the respondents to miss a session in order to undertake an interview.
Process We decided the best approach was to pre-recruit respondents from our respondent databases. We approached senior Nephrologists individually to see if they were attending and if they would be willing to participate. We also had a host on site to meet the respondents and make sure they attended the pre-booked interviews.
Outcome We delivered n=18 x 75 min interviews. There were 3 respondents from each of Germany, France and Spain, 4 from Italy and 5 from the UK. The logistics worked well and there were minimal interruptions to the planned schedules.
Feedback From our clients perspective the process ran very smoothly and their client was extremely pleased with both the number and quality of respondents delivered.
