A global survey conducted by The Conference Board and Nielsen will reveal how some 32,000 consumers in  64 markets are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. How does consumer confidence in Asia, North America and the European region differ from Q4 in 2019 and what countries are strongest in the face of this pandemic?

During this webcast, our panel of economists, researchers and other external guests will provide an in-depth look on how a previously strong global labor market, low consumer price inflation and consumer spending will most likely be impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. 

Join this program to discover: 

  • Will the previous lack of momentum in global consumer confidence now spiral into a global economic downturn?
  • How will a global contraction in Q2 manifest itself through consumer sentiment and behavior in different countries?
  • What has been the impact of the virus on consumer confidence in a country-by-country basis?

Who Should Attend: Anyone interested in how the current COVID-19 crisis has impacted the global economy, including labor markets, consumer spending, and consumer outlook
