The Global Summit 2018

12th-15th June 2018
Marina Bay Sands, Singapore



Consumer Centricity in a Data-Driven World

The 2018 edition of the Global Summit will take place at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. This year, we are focusing on “Consumer Centricity in a Data-Driven World” and Singapore will provide the perfect backdrop for such discussions as we bring together traditional players and some of the regions most innovative startups. Singapore also proved a perfect location as it is focused on becoming a “Smart City”. Sustained investment in technology is already turning Singapore into a connected, data-driven city that is perfect for trying new ideas.

Delegates will learn that consumer centricity is not just about making your consumers like you; it’s much more than that. If your company is interested in understanding the current and future needs of your consumers, you need to ensure that the right internal and consumer-facing strategies are in place. It will be 2018, and it’s time to do away with traditional business-driven strategies. At the Singapore Global Summit in 2018, see how leading FMCG companies around the world are doing just that.

See how data-driven consumer science brings these strategies to life and creates a foundation built on fact. Only by understanding the data can you have a game plan to effectively activate a consumer-centric approach to drive consumer loyalty, and only by joining us in Singapore can you hear first-hand how to make it work for you.

And, if this wasn’t enough, we will also be inventing a new, experiential exhibition area, one of several innovations to make this year’s Global Summit an even more engaging and interactive experience.
