IFMA's Consumer Planning Program (CPP) was formed to delve deeper into the consumer mindset. The program works to understand consumer and operator behavior and what manufacturers can do to influence decision-making. 



Each year, the CPP Committee collaborates to select over 20 research topics that are then executed by IFMA's research partner, Datassential. Findings from the research are discussed in numerous Committee meetings. In addition, each member company gets a full research deck, a cross-tabbing tool, and discounts to other IFMA events.
