International Our international presence

Brain value disseminates its studies in more than 30 countries.

Brain Value is the specialist of International research which represents 70% of its activity. We work in more than 30 countries by relying on a solid network of local partners.

In this development context, we have established 2 subsidiaries in our clients’ most strategic markets: China and the United States.

International research with Brain Value

Our mission is to help our clients position the consumer at the heart of their strategies, within all the markets they operate. To this end, we have developed a specific approach for international studies

Teams trained
to inter-culturalism:

Consumers evolve in a culture which influences their way of thinking, living, consuming and their relationship to brands.

It conditions the way we communicate with consumers, depending on the country in which they live, and impacts the insights we gather: a number are directly rooted into their cultural context.

For better efficiency with interlocutors of different cultures, and a good understanding of the cultural contexts in which

These skills enable us to enrich our analyses of cultural data.

This also leads us to differentiating our discussion guides to adapt them to local cultural contexts (e.g. we don’t question a Chinese individual as we wouldan American).

CHINA Brain Value China

China keeps all its promises thanks to sustained growth. Chinese people’s commitment to the world of consumption, their purchasing power et their taste for brands, has often made China a key market for our clients.

No-one better understands the Chinese consumer than the Chinese themselves: for that reason, Brain Value has implemented a 100% Chinese team, creating a bridge between our clients, often occidental, and the Chinese consumer.
Trained with our approaches, our team offers all types of research

(explorations, concept testing, advertising testing, brand overview, segmentation…).

Our team moderates strategic workshops by reuniting local marketing branches and international teams.

Brain Value China develops between 30 and 40 research studies per year in China, in numerous categories — relating either to a Chinese phase within international studies, or local research alongside international or Chinese clients.

Our objective is to be as close as possible to the Chinese consumer and his or her culture, in order to identify the best insights on the market for our clients.

The idea is also to understand Chinese trends and cultural shifts, and the marketing implications, which is why we create trend books.

Example trend books include:

Our offices

Located in the business centre of Shanghai, near Jingan Temple, Brain Value’s offices are equipped with a focus group and workshop room.
