Focus: The consumer of the future
Reading signs for the coming decade
Over the next ten years consumer attitudes and behaviors are likely to change in unprecedented ways, and business will have to consider a number of questions to remain viable to them: What will consumers in different geographic and demographic segments value? What will they need and want? Given what they have faced in recent years, how will their attitudes and behaviors continue to change in the coming decade?
These and other questions so critical to the consumer industries are on the agenda at this year's Consumer Goods Forum Summit in Barcelona, 15-17 June. The Summit brings together retailers, manufacturers, service providers, and other stakeholders from around the world and provides a unique global platform for knowledge exchange.
Deloitte's presentation, "Consumer 2020: Reading the signs," will be part of a special session on Wednesday, 15 June and delivered by Lawrence Hutter, Global Industry Lead, Consumer Business, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited; and Dr. Ira Kalish, Global Economist and Consumer Business Director, Deloitte Research.
