Does the global consumer remain unconcerned by new tariff legislation? Are wages still improving fast enough to keep consumers optimistic? Or do they sense trouble down the road, and if so, where?

During this webcast, we will reveal our latest data on Global Consumer Confidence for the second quarter of 2019, based on a survey of 32,000 customers in 64 markets throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and North America.

Join our expert panel to:

  • View the latest snapshot of global consumer confidence and how it will affect spending in each region;
  • Find out what levers—fears of trade wars, slowdown in job growth, rising debt—will impact the confidence of global consumers; and
  • Learn why emerging market economies could shift from relying on growth and exports to relying on domestic consumption.

Who Should Attend: Anyone with an interest in the global economy and the importance that consumer confidence plays on the world stage
