BDA co-hosts the 2023 Consumer and Retail Forum  

Building from our successful forum in Hong Kong last year, BDA Partners and Roland Berger co-hosted the 2023 Consumer Retail Forum in Singapore.  

The theme for the event was Consumer 2030: Building on New Foundations. Over 70 participants from over 50 companies attended, to discuss a number of pertinent topics including:  

  • How the Consumer markets have evolved, and will continue evolving post Covid  
  • Disruptions that are transforming the landscape  
  • Ultimately, how both incumbents and new players can take advantage of these trends to stay ahead of the competition  

Karen Cheung, Partner and Head of Consumer and Retail, Asia, BDA said, “We appreciate the candid and thought-provoking sharing by the keynote speaker and panelists. There was a lot of positive energy in this forum, which validates our view that, despite the disruptions we are seeing in the overall consumer M&A market, specific sub-sectors will remain resilient. There will be ample opportunity for dealmaking.”  

Mark Webster, Partner and Head of Services, BDA added, “It was compelling to see the mix of industry practitioners, sector experts and investors exchanging insights and personal experiences. We are all trying to figure out what consumers will demand in 2030 and beyond. Our goal is to bring the consumer community – both corporates and investors – closer together in a lively, fun way. We believe the event achieved just that.”
