Canada On Premise Delta-Variant Impact webinar presented by CGA

October 7

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the CGA team have strived to provide our clients with the most up-to-date, and relevant insights in what has been a dramatic and fast changing 18 months for the On Premise. Although the channel is still reopening, there has quite rightly been a lot of debate surrounding the impact of the Delta variant upon On Premise visitation and spend.

We always want to try and add well-considered research to the big questions being asked by our clients and partners and with this in mind, we have carried out some exclusive, consumer research into this topic.

In this comprehensive webinar we will be delving into these insights in more detail – looking at opinions by province, by age, and other groups, as well as quantifying the impact of public opinion on this potential threat with unique analytics only available via CGA’s proprietary datasets.

Join CGA experts Matthew Crompton – Client Solutions Director, Americas; Patrick Bannon – Client Director, Americas; and Mitch Stefani – Client Solutions Manager, Americas, for this discussion. Register your place today.
