As business leaders get more nervous about the future of the 2019 economy, a critical question that arises is what do consumers expect? Ultimately, job availability, rise in incomes, and a better understanding of the purchasing power of their hard-earned money will determine a consumer's willingness to keep spending.

Join our 2019 Window On kickoff webcast as our expert panel examines:

  • How has global consumer confidence been evolving recently?
  • What are the biggest challenges for consumers in the coming year?
  • How does consumer strength differ between global regions, including US, Europe and different parts of Asia?

Who Should Attend: Business executives with an interest in how the global consumer will respond to the challenges they are facing with regard to their income situation, their labor market prospects and how this will impact buying decisions across the world.
