The Asian Network for Public Opinion Research (ANPOR) has been an important venue for scholars, practitioners, journalists and students from various countries around the world to participate and contribute to the betterment of Asian societies through the lens of public opinion research since 2012. Among many activities of ANPOR, the Annual Conference is perhaps the largest event. The previous conferences in Seoul, Niigata, Bangkok, Battambang/Siem Reap, and Shanghai have all been a great success drawing over 500 participants from more than twenty countries.
