About The Costco Virtual Event

As Costco continues to grow, it faces threats from both evolving shoppers and competing players such as Amazon looking for a slice of the wholesale pie. On March 11th, Kantar will lay out strategies to help you defend against the threats and set yourself up for success with the world’s largest club.
