B8508 - Special Topic: Cross-Cultural Marketing (Session 2 of 4)
In 2019, multicultural consumers make up 40% of the U.S. population, with a combined spending power of $3.7 trillion. 92% of population growth from 2000 – 2019 came form multicultural consumers. In 2045, the census projects that the U.S will become ‘majority minority’ – a reality that is already true of Gen Z and many individual DMAs, including Los Angeles, Dallas and Miami. Clearly, understanding the unique characteristics and drivers of these cultural segments is essential for any 21st century marketer. What are the pros and cons of these approaches?
