E - Conference Overview

The corona virus pandemic will be a trigger for profound change, as history of recessions and world events have shown us. The current pandemic has intensified and prioritised this requirement as we’ve witnessed dramatic shifts in consumer behaviour, acceleration of digital trends, supply chains and new disruptive business models. Years’ worth of digital transformation has occurred in just two months. Whilst some behaviours and trends will return to what they were pre-pandemic, there are others that are here to stay. These trends and behaviours will drive new innovation and growth opportunities for retail and consumer companies. This conference aims to create a friendly and approachable academy and environment, for scientific discussion, networking and innovation, reviewing literature on issues relating to business, finance, marketing and sustainable business growth among the participants of the seminar; to understand and keep abreast with the emerging trends and future directions, which are shaping the competitive trends in the global business landscape.
