The annual Global Summit is The Consumer Goods Forum’s flagship event exclusively reserved for CEOs and C-level executives from its member companies. It is the place where retailers, manufacturers and their services providers come to discuss future business trends, network and share knowledge and best-practices for overcoming today’s most pressing challenges.
In 2019, the 63rd edition of the event, the theme focuses on “Growth Through New Retail”.
The CPG/FMCG industry is facing a precipice and “business as usual” is no longer an option. New technologies, changing consumer demands and digital-first companies are ensuring turbulence from all sides. As such, companies can no longer talk about individual solutions in isolation.
Companies must choose the path that is right for them, but it’s one that will be easier through collaboration. One thing is for certain, accepting the status quo will lead to failure. Companies need to look for new ways to collaborate, to reach customers and to innovate.
The industry must find new models to satisfy new consumer needs and the 2019 Global Summit will help you get there, as it explores the very best examples of responsible business and digital business models, and you’ll hear from those leading the charge.
