Global Consumer Outlook: Finding growth in 2024 and beyond

Date: 6 March 2024

Global consumer spending will continue to grow this year, despite the general economic slowdown. But as demand weakens and consumers’ tolerance for higher prices wanes, retailers will have to rely more on volumes expansion to match last year’s sales performance.

Join us as we dissect the economic outlook, identifying lucrative pockets of growth in consumer spending markets across countries, cities, and various spending categories. 

We’ll be answering key questions, including: 

  • Which Emerging Markets are poised to become the largest and fastest growing consumer markets?
  • Will the US consumer continue its global dominance, despite a slowing economy?
  • Within the US and Europe, which regions will grow fastest in 2024?
  • Which regions will see the fastest growth in tourists’ spending this year?


Note: Can’t make it to any of the sessions? Feel free to register for any session and we will automatically share the recording with you 3 hours after the webinar has finished.
