Putting the consumer front and centre

Staying attuned to consumer insights is an important strand of Beam Suntory’s strategy, making the TR Consumer Forum a highly relevant event to partner on.

“At Beam Suntory we prioritise data-driven decision-making, leveraging consumer insights to understand the market dynamics that inform our business strategy,” said Valdés.

“Consumer insights drive continuous innovation, helping us to proactively identify growth opportunities and stay ahead of evolving customer needs.”

The company is pinpointing how certain consumer behaviours and preferences are already evolving this year.

“Consumers are changing their preferences towards more premium and crafted products, seeking unique, high-quality offers and an overall omnichannel shopping experience, as expectations for seamless, personalised experiences continue to rise,” revealed Valdés.

“There is also a growing trend towards sustainability influencing product preferences and brand loyalty, as consumers become even more conscious of environmental and social impact.”
