HHL Expert Talk: Consumption and Retail in Times of Corona

Consumption patterns have shifted during the current Corona crisis. Even in a country like Germany, which is not very severely affected nor suffering under very restrictive measures, consumption patterns change. Many popular opinions regarding this shift do exist: „Online grocery is the biggest winner – also in the long run “, „Online streaming will replace other media “, etc. Economy-Expert Erik Maier tests common held beliefs.

In his virtual Expert Talk Junior-Professor Erik Maier aims at testing these commonly held beliefs and also digging into consumer needs as motivations for behavioral changes. HHL cordially invites you to join the virtual Talk.
