Joint Monthly Luncheon: Innovation Series – The Future of Consumers

September 2, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Swiss Association & Swiss Chamber of Commerce Joint Luncheon
Innovation Series: The Future of Consumers

A KPMG report has revealed that Chinese consumers are far ahead of the global average when it comes to interest in new technology.

More than half (53%) of China respondents say they are very interested in new technology and will be among the first to buy a new device when it comes out, ahead of the 29% global average. Eight in 10 Chinese consumers also say that it is important for brands they regularly purchase to have a dynamic social media presence.

The Swiss Chamber is delighted to have Anson Bailey, KPMG China’s Head of Consumer and Retail, ASPAC and Head of Technology, Hong Kong, to host a panel discussion of distinguished speakers including K-Style Labs and Retail in Asia to share their insights into dealing with those future consumers and the latest hot consumer trends.

The luncheon will cover:

  • Chinese vs Western consumers
  • Is the future Digital?
  • The customer journey
  • Strategies for dealing with those future consumers
  • What are the new Consumer Trends for 2020?
