BDI Research Madrid

Welcome to El Foro (The Forum)

BDI Research, formerly Block de Ideas, has recently joined the Schlesinger family. BDI Research helps you access Spain’s capital’s metropolitan area population of an 6.5 million people, the third largest in European Union. We also cover Spain in its entirety, including its beautiful islands.

Our multi-lingual team understands international researcher needs and is supported by a pool of experienced interviewers who are native speakers of numerous European languages. We embrace low-incidence and challenging studies and we are uncompromisingly committed to your success.

Should you require full-service qualitative support, our bi-lingual Spanish-English moderators and analysts can be briefed directly by you.
