Session title: The Analyst Perspective on Inflation and Other Economic Forces Shaping Retail
Session description: The only thing certain about today's economy is uncertainty. News articles say a global recession is looming, inflation is nearing or touching new records, and corporate layoffs are taking place in tech and other industries--yet retailers can't hire enough workers to keep their stores or warehouses running smoothly. In this session, two leading consultants will present unbiased research into the state of the economy and what it means for consumers and retailers, helping attendees cut through conflicting reports of boom and bust.
Date and time of the EMI session: 9 May 2023, 11.00-11.40 CET
