  Anthony Williams

Anthony Williams – GfK

How can brands maximise opportunities in retail?

GfK is a leading market research company and will explain the current retail climate in the ever changing nursery sector and explain the value of high end products.

The number of touchpoints between brands and consumers is increasing at an unprecedented rate. Consumers are seeking richer retail experiences, rather than simply acquiring new products. There is also an intense competition for loyalty.

Anthony will explain how manufacturers and retailers can engage with nursery consumers and help build value into their businesses.

A New Type of Consumer: The Super Informed Parent

Parents Insights is the most comprehensive and dynamic market intelligence resource on all things new parents in the UK, from expecting mothers all the way through to parents of four-year olds. The Insights People surveys 125 parents with children aged 0-4 every single week, which is more than 6,000 every year.

Nick Richardson

The shopping habits of new parents have shifted over the last 18 months, as parents have access to ever increasing amounts of information.

Using the most up to date data available, Parents Insights will be exploring how the purchasing influences of new parents are evolving.

What sources of information to parents use to inform purchase decisions? Does this vary with household income?

Do product influences vary depending on the product categories?
