2020 Outlook perspectives: Coming soon

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated and amplified ongoing shifts in consumers’ behaviour, pulling forward digital disruption and forging industry tipping points that wouldn’t have been reached for many years. As a result, the E&M world in 2020 has become more remote, more virtual, more streamed, more personal and – for now at least – more centred on the home. Winners and losers will emerge based on their ability to leverage enabling technology to deliver truly distinctive content and experience options, while navigating regulatory and privacy hurdles.
