Description

‘Momentum in the global economy is shifting away from emerging markets and back to advanced economies after years in the doldrums’ (FT, September 4, 2013)’ The US and EU represent by far the largest markets for Western companies, accounting for more than half of global GDP and more FDI and trade than any other region.  These markets are now growing again, and changing fast – and so are the opportunities (and the risks) they offer.  At our Conference, we will:

  • Explore the megatrends in this market, and 4 key gamechangers: big data; energy innovation and the sustainability imperative; demography and diversity; and the prospective TTIP;
  • Identify the opportunities and risks that these megatrends and gamechangers present;
  •  Suggest strategies that will help companies to succeed in this huge, growing and rapidly evolving marketplace.

Our Annual Conference has become established as one of the highlights of our business events calendar each year.  This year’s conference will again feature high ranking leaders and opinion-formers from business and government, providing delegates with a programme of substantive and superior analysis of the relevant issues.
