Are fears of a weaker economy affecting the global consumer’s income prospects and spending habits? And is the consumer—who has been the savior of the world's economies—starting to adopt some of the business community's pessimism as we begin 2020?
Hear from both researchers and executives at The Conference Board as they reveal top findings from The Conference Board® Global Consumer Confidence Index, a survey of over 30,000 customers in markets throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and North America.
Join this webcast to discover:
- What the current snapshot of the confidence of the global consumer is and how it will influence spending in each region;
- Which specific levers (such as fears of trade wars) will impact global consumer confidence; and
- If the business community is growing more pessimistic about the future—and whether those fears are beginning to affect global consumer spending habits.
Who Should Attend: Business executives who want to find out the latest on how confident the global consumer is as we enter a new decade.
