The State of Marketing in Christchurch 2023: Resilient Optimism and the Path to Prosperity?

2023 is shaping up to be a year of uncertainty and challenges. 

Global issues are causing consumer anxiety as supply chain delays and war affects daily life.
Locally, businesses and their customers are feeling the pinch as rampant inflation hits wallets hard and the nation reels from one extreme weather event to another. 
Technology and the impact of Ai are hot topics and a big year of political party electioneering is gearing up to dominate our news cycle. 

Amongst all this how well is our city doing in this year of rapid change? 
And how can marketers adapt and deal with the changes around and ahead of us?

We’re delighted to host renowned researcher and social commentator Carl Davidson to outline some of the insights from Research First’s Te Mauri O Ōtautahi project and talk about how our city is really doing. He’ll discuss some trends, explore what is going well, and lead a conversation about where we can do better. 

He’ll place special emphasis on what marketers can (and cannot) do to support the city’s challenges.
You’re invited to be part of this conversation and join us! The first drink is on us, and light food will be supplied.
