Perfectly happy? Difficult Christmas for Retailers & Consumers

The war in Ukraine, the climate crisis - and rising energy prices are increasingly unsettling consumers. The word "crisis" seems to be firmly anchored in our minds since the Corona pandemic.

In the maelstrom of seemingly increasing bad news and looming existential uncertainties, the consumer's economic restraint is obvious. The geopolitical and macroeconomic situation has become a challenge for which there seems to be no relief in the foreseeable future, especially for early-cycle companies. But is this the case?
As part of the 4GAMECHANGERS studio show, we take a look at the current trading situation with the help of experts. What forecasts can be made and to what extent will the upcoming holiday business be influenced by this?

Will "rich gifts" become the same dream in the future as "white" Christmas in this country?
