Absa CIB Admin


Addressing Africa’s consumer environment in a COVID-19 world is critical. Absa will unpack key focus areas in live webcasts between June 2020 and the end of the year.

The Absa Consumer Virtual Conference Series 2020 is a condensed, digital version of the same critical content that the Absa Consumer Conference has been delivering for years.

For this year’s virtual offering, 14 key sessions from the regular conference have been converted into live webcasts. The seven webcasts will launch on 30 June 2020 and will run until the end of the year.

Participants of the live webinars will be able to interact, network and ask questions. All webcast recordings will be available post the event.

Reviewing up to the minute trends and impacts

This year’s focus is COVID-19, specifically, the immediate impact of the pandemic on consumer credit and the broader economy, as well as the medium- and long-term impact of the global crisis on consumer behaviour across a number of sectors.

Key focus areas of discussion will be clothing trends, clothing supply chains, property dynamics, food, government’s role in consumer behaviour, sports, macroeconomics and online trends.

Business and financial decision makers and leaders will be able to leverage the insights addressed over these key sessions to make more informed decisions relating to consumer-focused products and markets.
