Enriching research sources with market intelligence solutions. Case study of Passport database

Laura Kugiene, Business Development Executive, Euromonitor International

Abstract: Euromonitor International’s presentation will review key trends and developments in consumer market on global level and Bulgaria in particular. Consumers are becoming more and more demanding of products, services and brands than ever before, and are using digital tools to articulate and fulfil their needs. The future consumer is harder to characterise, not least because identity is multidimensional and in flux, with shoppers more likely to have a hand in defining themselves and their needs. What will the consumer of the future be like? What are consumers’ preferences and how will they change over the years? Which consumer trends will reign globally in the future? These are some of the questions that will be answered for participants as they navigate through increasingly complex world of changing consumer demands and preferences.
