September Program: Marketing to the New Cultural Mix

Are You Considering All of Your Customers?

Susan Saurage-Altenloh has spent over two decades exploring the characteristics and values of the American population. As one of the premier marketing research resources in the U. S., her firm provides critical data for some of the largest marketing campaigns – currently underway – across the country.

Each decade, our American population becomes more diverse. For example, generational preferences change, lifestyle choices expand, and ethnic traditions are often adopted by the population at large. All of these key influences have a direct impact on consumer decisions. Faced with such a varied and fluid population, how do we identify the right customers?

Susan Saurage-Altenloh helps us explore the current market segments, talk about how they are evolving and look at the best ways to reach each one. During the luncheon, “Marketing to the New Cultural Mix,” she helps answer the below questions:

  • How is our cultural mix changing?
  • What effect does it have on today’s promotional strategies?
  • What changes can we expect for the future?

You will walk away from this presentation with detailed descriptions of America’s key cultural consumer groups and the most effective strategies for reaching them.
