Everything you ever wanted to know…

Why a global event?

In 2020 we began hosting our events virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time we learned that 77% of end-client researchers use virtual events as a way to stay up to date with industry education. Quirk’s audience is global and many researchers do not live close enough to an in-person event to attend. In fact, 97% of Quirk’s audience has not been able to enjoy a Quirk’s in-person event in 2022. Quirk’s Global Event is the event for them!

I just want to see one session. Do I still have to register for the event?


Do I have to attend the entire event?

Virtual events bring the experience of an in-person conference to your personal computer, so just like an in-person conference, you have the freedom to pick the sessions you attend. But attending the event in its entirety – the sessions, the breakouts, the virtual trade show – will help you to get the most out of the experience. But you are not required to attend the entire day. Come and go as you please over the three days. 

What time does the conference start?

Day 1 (October 11) – 9:00 a.m. ET 

Day 2 (October 12) – 9:00 a.m. ET
