  • The Evolving Normal: As consumers ease back into normal activities, marketers must prepare for an evolving social renaissance.
  • Back to school: The fall semester will see a mix of in-person and remote learning, with shoppers starting early, seeking deals, and purchasing items they didn’t need last year.
