Sponsored by Tetra Pak, hosted by Store Brands
In this inspiring webcast, hosted by Tetra Pak, the participants will deep dive into two of the most exciting and relevant target groups of today: the Millennial Generation and mothers.
The Millennial Generation (18 - 30 year olds) is a radically different generation compared to the generations before them. They grew up in a digital world full of media, marketing and an abundance of information. The Millennials were pampered by their parents, but sincerely worry about the world they grow up in. They are a big age cohort, both in size and in influence. Understanding this generation also means understanding the future.
Modern mothers are not just mothers anymore. Being a mother is just one of the multiple roles modern women have. They are also wives, colleagues, friends and maybe most importantly: the CFO of the family: Women account for the vast majority of all consumer purchasing decisions. Within their mother role, things are changing as well. The relationship with their (Millennial) children is undergoing a variety of interesting changes, like the lack of a generation gap.
Relevant questions that will be answered are:
- How do Millennials and moms make decisions in-store?
- How can brands & retailers target them? What are some practical tools?
- What will the future hold regarding Millennials and moms?
