About the A.C. Nielsen Summit

The A.C. Nielsen Center for Marketing Research hosts a Summit for alumni and industry friends every other year. The Summit is an invitation-only educational conference focused on an industry theme of the alumni’s choosing. The voice of the alumni is coordinated with the help of the A.C. Nielsen Center alumni representatives, Gail Casey and Giustina Parisi. They created a committee of alumni and industry partners to put together the Summit along with the A.C. Nielsen Center team. The Summit is all day Friday, October 19, 2018 and is held at the Fluno Center on campus. The A.C. Nielsen Center’s External Advisory Board meeting is held at Grainger on Thursday, October 18, 2018 and is open to alumni.
