The United States is in the midst of several important demographic trends that are likely to shift the business landscape. Some of the most discussed implications include the impact on the US labor market, and, more specifically, on the health care system. Demographic trends will also change consumer spending across categories and locations. Consumer spending, the main driver of any advanced economy, largely depends on the number of consumers, their age, and their location.

In this webcast, we will explore the relation between demographics and consumption from various perspectives, including the spending implications for different consumption categories and the impact of consumption trends on business location choices. 

Who Should Attend: Anyone at a consumer-facing business with responsibilities, including identifying long-term consumer trends and opportunities, prioritizing investments across geographic regions of the US and across product categories, and developing merchandising and marketing strategies
