This event is hosted by Retail Week 

With UK consumers in the grip of a cost-of-living crisis, retailers find themselves once again staring into the jaws of disruption.

As the cost of living continues to rise at an unprecedented pace, many retailers and brands fear that purse strings will tighten, with consumers’ disposable income reallocated towards essential spending on food and bills. 

It has never been more vital for retailers to be in complete sync with customers’ needs. So how can they engage new shoppers at this crucial time and drive loyalty from their existing customer base? Where should retailers invest to win? How can they use marketing savvy – both in-store and online – to attract spend without breaking budgets?

Join your peers at Consumer Week 2023 to find out

We will drill down on practical ways to combat the cost-of-living crisis, looking at the driving factors behind customer spending in the current climate and new strategies for customer engagement and growth.

Hear exclusive insights from leading brands including Deliveroo, Pandora, Mister Spex, REN Clean Skincare, Rotaro and more.

Comprising a free virtual morning masterclass on September 28 and a free in-person morning summit on September 29 at The Form Rooms, Covent Garden, Consumer Week is a chance to come together with Retail Week to redefine your CX strategies and take a deep dive into the consumer psyche.
