Why You Should Attend

10th Edition Consumer-Focused R&D and Innovation in the Wake of Economic Downturn

This marcus evans conference serves as an international, cross-industry platform to discuss R&D and Innovation in the wake of economic downturn. This event provides a unique opportunity to address the impacts of the COVID-19 Crisis on R&D strategy, and explore ways how to build a resilient business model that can withstand future crises. Since the connection between a product and a consumer is vital, particularly in times of economic downturn, we will explore ways how to close the gap between the end-customer and R&D. We will discuss how crisis drives innovations in the business model, how to synchronise R&D with the customerís new needs and demands and how to adapt the overall R&D strategy to maximise commercial viability of products and services.

Despite the current circumstances, we know your appetite for key business insights remains so our Live+ digital platform enables you to fully participate in the event remotely. Of course it provides access to live online streams of all session, but much more than that, it ensures you are able to engage with speakers directly allowing you to participate in Q&A, relevant breakout groups as well as event polling and other insights and resources delivered during the event. We realise interacting with other delegates is key to your event experience, so our innovate online solution allows you to set up online meetings with other virtual and physical attendees throughout the event; ensuring you still walk away with those key contacts that can make a tangible difference to you and your business. The platform will continue to host all event content on-demand for you to re-visit and continue to access for up to 6 months post event.
