On Tuesday evening, Harris Interactive®, the fastest growing market research company in the world, received six Advertising Research Foundation (ARF) David Ogilvy Research Awards at the 2007 ARF Ogilvy Awards Gala. Harris Interactive was recognized for its work with DHL, International Dairy Foods Association, AdoptUsKids/The Advertising Council, Chili’s and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA).

The ARF Ogilvy Awards annually celebrate advertising legend David Ogilvy’s spirited advocacy of using research for making good advertising better. The winning campaigns recognized have achieved significant business results based on the research insights they incorporated.
