The Future of Consumerism and Retail in 2019 and Beyond
It’s the time for wrap-ups and round-ups, as every business professional gets ready to close off the year, scrambling to hit the last of this year’s targets, at the same time as gearing up for the coming year.
In the last year alone we have seen plenty of change. Apple became the USA’s first US$1 trillion dollar company, quickly followed by Amazon. JD.com held its annual 6.18 shopping festival and made US$24.7 billion in half a month. Walmart bought Flipkart in a much-discussed saga. Alibaba rolled out its New Retail strategy with ambitious goals to transform brick-and-mortar retailing.
Amidst all that, we all want to know the answer to one question: where is the market heading next year, and what will consumers want in 2019? What are the trends, and what are the opportunities?
Global consumer trends firm TrendWatching is hosting its worldwide trend tour, and will be bringing the event to Hong Kong for the first time on Tuesday November 27. Join the team to learn the most important Asian consumer trends for 2019 and the opportunities they spell for retailers in Hong Kong.
Next year is almost here… are you ready for it?
