LG Addresses Impact of AI on Business and Lifestyle at AI Summit and LG ThinQ Forum

  [07-December-2018]  

Company Shares Unique Insight on the Development of AI and Its Implications for Commerce and Daily Life at Events in New York

NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics (LG) made a positive impression at the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Summit in New York (December 5-6), providing considerable insight on the current state of AI technology and what it could mean for life, both inside and outside the workplace. LG also hosted its own LG ThinQ Forum during the summit, leading a lively talk and reinforcing the strength of LG ThinQ, the company's own AI platform.

To view the Multimedia News Release, go to:
https://www.multivu.com/players/English/8461551-lg-thinq-ai-summit/

Mohammed Ansari, senior vice president and general manager of the LG Silicon Valley Lab, participated in a panel discussion entitled, The Failures of AI: What is holding AI back from taking off? Realistic approaches on how to deal with some of the common pitfalls. He was joined on stage by other global AI experts, sharing their views and knowledge on AI development and implementation.

Delivering a tech insider's take at the AI Summit, Ansari noted that progress in creating relevant technologies, or lack thereof, is largely determined by specific factors in each sector. He also cited a shortage of data and insufficient knowhow as key issues preventing many companies from advancing and deploying AI solutions. Introducing LG ThinQ, he mentioned that LG is actively finding ways to overcome such obstacles, seeking out innovative methods for turning raw data into useful information and viable technical solutions.

Ansari also took part in the LG ThinQ Forum along with a select group of authorities from the tech and lifestyle arenas. Pondering the forum's theme â€�“ The Future of AI's Impact on the Home: From interior design to quality of life, how will AI provide a better life at home? â€�“ the well-known participants included Carley Knobloch, digital lifestyle influencer and Naomi Makofsky of Global Products Partnerships at Google Assistant with Will Thompson, managing director of Forbes Insights moderating the session. The contributors explored several topics related to AI in the home, including how brands are currently incorporating AI into appliances and other household products, how AI differs from smart technology, and why some people are hesitant to integrate intelligent systems into their lives. And, of course, how AI can improve the human experience by making time for the things that really matter.

"Epitomizing the values of 'Evolve, Connect, Open', LG ThinQ products are designed to provide a more personalized experience the more they are used, offer a seamless connection for the user both throughout their homes and beyond, and are compatible with different platforms in order to meet the diverse needs and preferences of our customers, making their lives freer and easier. We hope to implement next-generation AI technologies to provide for a fully integrated digital-physical environment," said Mohammed Ansari, senior vice president and general manager of the LG Silicon Valley Lab.

"The company's unique strategy is what makes LG ThinQ stand out from the crowd. LG's innovative AI solutions for the home have the potential to transform daily life for the better. It was a pleasure to be involved in the forum and help communicate the benefits that AI can offer," added Carley Knobloch, digital lifestyle influencer.

BERLIN, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On December 6, two well-known artists from the city of Xi'an, China visited Berlin to install more than 100 terracotta warrior replicas on a boat that traveled down the Spree River in the heart of Berlin.

"I am very happy that the 'Xi'an Meets Berlin' event is taking place in Berlin," said Ms. Chu Huizi, representative from the Chinese Embassy to Germany. "This is the first time that the Terracotta Army has been presented in such an interactive form outside of China, such as an art installation or geocaching, and it's great for Berliners to experience the magic of the Terracotta Army in this way."

The kick-off event hosted around 100 people on a cruise down the river Spree, with a live painting demonstration from the Xi'an artists. Attendees had the opportunity to capture photos of the art installation against famous Berlin landmarks like the Reichstag and the Paul Löbe-Haus.

"I am very excited to be in Berlin sharing Xi'an with the city," said Mr. Wang Ben, a well-known painter from Xi'an. "Art is central to Berlin's culture and we wanted to create a unique way of presenting our city to the Berlin people.

Dairy Alternatives Market Rises at 13.8%; Thrust on Product Development Bodes Well for Growth - TMR

  [07-December-2018]  

ALBANY, New York, December 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The global dairy alternatives market is choc-a-bloc with players. Hence, the market is both fragmented and cutthroat. In order to gain a solid foothold in such an overcrowded space, nimble players are seen banking upon several strategies. Those include creating products fortified with greater amount of nutrients, experimenting with taste, and creating attractive packaging. They are also seen banking upon proactive advertising and marketing strategies.

Blue Diamond Growers, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Freedom Foods Group Limited, and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company are to name a few of the key companies operating in the global dairy alternatives market. They have come to hold a prominent position by banking upon such strategies.

Transparency Market Research has prepared an elaborate report on the global dairy alternatives market. The report informs that the market has been rising at a healthy double digit CAGR of 13.8% from 2016 to 2024. At this pace, the market which was worth US$8.22 bn is expected to attain a value of US$26.31 bn by 2024.

Depending upon applications, the global dairy alternatives market can be broadly divided into food and drinks. Between the two, the segment of beverages accounts for most of the share in the market. This is both with respect to value and volume. With respect to geography, the global dairy alternatives market is mainly being powered by the demand from Asia Pacific. This is because of the surging middle class in the growing urban pockets. The mushrooming supermarkets and hypermarkets in the developing economies in the region are also having a positive impact on the market.

Lactose Intolerance in People Creates Opportunities for Global Dairy Alternatives Market 

The report projects the global dairy alternatives market to be buoyed by the rising demand for alternatives in different food products such as cheese, sweets, and spreads. Those are also being used for beverages. One of the main reasons behind it is the lactose intolerance among many people. Since milk and milk products create digestion problem in them, they are seen opting for dairy alternatives. Those are also known to provide greater energy. Thus, there has been a perceptible rise in demand in the global dairy alternatives market.

Ethical Concerns Provide Tailwinds to Market As well 

Some of the popular products in the global dairy alternatives market are soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, oat milk, and hazelnut milk. Their demand and sales is also growing because of the rising awareness about the inhuman practices in large, mechanized dairies. Adds our lead in-house analyst, "As demand for milk and milk products grew at a breakneck speed worldwide, cattle owners adopted new methods to increase milk production in cows and other animals. They also leveraged latest technologies to increase the speed of milking. All these induce excruciating pain in the animals. Growing awareness about the same has played a key role in promoting the global dairy alternatives market."

PRN: New Energy Technology Could Save British Hospitality and Leisure Sector £310M-a-year, Report by Centrica Finds Fri, 07 Dec 2018 03:50:50 +0100 http://content.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/507667.html http://content.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/507667.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

New Energy Technology Could Save British Hospitality and Leisure Sector £310M-a-year, Report by Centrica Finds

  [07-December-2018]  

LONDON, December 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

UK businesses in the hospitality and leisure sector could save at least £310m-a-year on their energy bills by adopting new energy technologies like solar panels and batteries, according to a report published by Centrica.

The report Distributed Energy: Powering the future of hospitality and leisure, found that if just 50% of businesses in the sector adopted new energy technology it would boost UK economic growth by £3.7bn GVA (Gross Value Added) and support 50,000 jobs.

The hospitality and leisure sector is the UK's third largest employer and spends more than £1.3bn a year on energy. Businesses have been challenged to improve their energy productivity by 20% by 2030, as set out by the Government's Clean Growth Strategy.

Alan Barlow, UK and Ireland Director at Centrica Business Solutions, said: "New energy technology has the potential to drive growth, increase efficiency and help give businesses in the hospitality and leisure sector a competitive advantage.

"Investing in this area doesn't just make sense financially. Businesses are increasingly harnessing the sustainability benefits of low-carbon energy technology to attract and retain growing numbers of environmentally-savvy consumers."

The research suggests that savings could be achieved by adopting distributed energy technology such as efficient heating and lighting, solar, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and battery storage. New energy monitoring technology can also help to identify inefficient equipment and processes.

To read the report in full, click here.

Carbon emissions savings for the hospitality and leisure sector 

The report follows the publication of Centrica's 'Powering sustainability' report in October, which found that the hospitality and leisure sector could reduce its annual carbon emissions by 14% through the adoption of new energy technology.

Centrica calculated that, if just half of hospitality and leisure businesses in the UK adopted distributed energy technology, the sector could reduce emissions by the equivalent of 1.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year (1.3 MtCO2e), or the equivalent of 23 million tonnes by 2030. This is equal to the annual carbon emissions associated with the energy use of 421,000 homes, or equivalent to the entire housing stock of Norfolk.

Case study: Alton Towers Resort 

An example of a hospitality business realising the benefits of new energy technology is the 550-acre Alton Towers Resort. It is home to four hotels, a conference centre, more than a dozen restaurants and Europe's largest waterpark. The hotels alone can accommodate 2,500 guests and 400 staff.

The facilities team must ensure power is supplied to all of these different buildings as well as provide heat for the 1,000m³ of water in the waterpark. Centrica Business Solutions installed a combined heat and power unit (CHP) at the resort capable of generating up to 850kWh of electricity. CHP is a form of on-site energy generation that uses the heat by-product of electricity generation so that it can be put to use - in this case, to maintain water temperature in the park. Meeting these two needs from one source results in an annual saving on energy costs for Alton Towers of 12% a year.  

Notes to editors: 

  • The report has been published following the one-year anniversary of the Industrial Strategy, which identified the opportunities for UK industry to harness the global shift to clean growth.
  • The hospitality and leisure sector research form parts of Centrica Business Solution's Powering Britain report, which analysed key sectors including healthcare, industry and hospitality and leisure. Combined, these sectors account for more than a quarter of the UK's GVA, and almost a third of UK employment. The report found that if just half of these sectors invested in energy saving solutions, they could reduce annual energy costs by £980m.
  • The number of dwellings as of 1 April 2017 in Norfolk was 420,360, according to Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government housing statistics published in May 2018.

Soho Angels - The Night-time Volunteers Helping People Stay Safe This Festive Season

  [06-December-2018]  

LGBT Foundation and Westminster City Council launch nighttime safety initiative, supported by Smirnoff

LONDON, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Specially trained volunteers will be out on the streets of Soho this festive season, ensuring Christmas revellers 'end the night right'. Whether handing out water or helping people get medical attention, the Soho Angels will be doing everything in their power to help people end the night right. They will also be trained to spot those who are most vulnerable - for example, due to being on their own, or being intoxicated.

Westminster City Council and LGBT Foundation are partnering on this new night time safety initiative, proudly supported by Smirnoff. It's designed to make London's nightlife a safer space for everyone, and a more inclusive and understanding space for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people.

The Angels home base, the Soho Night Hub located at St Anne's, will offer a safe space for people to rest, recover, get help if they've fallen victim to crime, or simply charge their phone. The Hub and Angels are there for anyone who needs help while out at night in Soho, whether they are residents, visitors or tourists.

The pilot formally launches on December 7th, and it will run every Friday through December. With the lessons learned during this time, it's hoped the scheme will be rolled out every Friday and Saturday from February 2019.

Councillor Ian Adams, Cabinet Member for Public Protection and Licensing, said:

"From finding lost belongings, or even a lost friend, the Soho Angels are here to help everyone end the night right. The Angels home base, the Night Hub, will be a safe place to escape the bustle of Soho and sober up, get support, or just have a chat while charging a phone. The Council's committed to making the city's nightlife a safe and inclusive place, and we also hope this takes some of the winter pressures off the NHS. Soho is the heart of London's nightlife, but also the historical centre of London's LGBT community. The Angels will reflect Soho's roots and have specific LGBT support and training."

This new initiative stems from Westminster Council's Licensing Charter work, and LGBT Foundation's Village Angels programme, which has become a key fixture of Manchester's nightlife. A number of partners are helping to deliver the project, including St John Ambulance, Drinkaware, Metropolitan Police, London Ambulance Service and Safer West End.

Founded in 2011, LGBT Foundation's Village Angels in Manchester have helped nearly 100,000 people and are credited with helping to reduce crime, alleviate pressure on emergency services and ensure thousands of clubbers get home safely. In 2017, LGBT Foundation partnered with the Smirnoff "We're Open" campaign to begin expanding the Village Angels nationally.

Paul Martin OBE, Chief Executive of LGBT Foundation, explains:

"Since 2011, thousands of Village visitors have been helped by the Angels and they regularly carry out life-saving interventions. Unfortunately, we know that people can be targeted because of their sexual orientation or gender identity and that LGBT communities still face discrimination and barriers to accessing support. We recognised the need for similar programmes in other LGBT spaces across the country, and that's why we're proud to be working with Westminster City Council and Smirnoff to bring the Soho Angels to the streets of London! ."

Smirnoff Marketing Manager, Sarah Shimmons, added:

"This chapter of the Smirnoff We're Open campaign aims to make nightlife a safer space for LGBTQ+ people. We're committed to supporting Westminster City Council and LGBT Foundation in creating a much needed service for London, offering help and support to Soho and its LGBTQ+ community to ensure it remains one of the UK's most inclusive and safe nights out."

Dan Bevis, St John Ambulance London and South regional operations manager, said:

"It's important A&E is there for people who need it, especially with our health service facing increasing pressures. We hope the care and assistance our volunteers give will help people get home safely after their night out, and will reduce demand placed on the NHS, too."

Maison Perrier-Jouët Presents 'Art of the Wild' Universe at Faena Hotel, Miami

  [06-December-2018]  

MIAMI, December 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

An unconventional, unbridled, unexpected takeover   

Maison Perrier-Jouët presents EDEN by Perrier-Jouët: an ephemeral, immersive experience, taking place at Faena Hotel, in parallel with Design Miami/, the contemporary art fair that the House has collaborated with for the past seven years. On 5thDecember, the biggest names in Miami came together to discover Art of the Wild, the extravagant universe as seen by the House to re-enchant the everyday through the presence of unbridled nature. It continues to enchant Miami with a packed programme of events.   

To view the Multimedia News Release, please click:http://www.multivu.com/players/uk/8461451-maison-perrier-jouets-art-of-wild-universe/  

Maison Perrier-Jouët is taking over Miami, where it unleashed EDEN by Perrier-Jouët: an invitation to delve into the House's relationship with art and nature that spans back to its foundation. It was the ideal setting for spreading Art of the Wild, the House's vision of an unexpected and joyful world, where nature reveals itself in all its liberty and exuberance. Reflecting this vibrant spirit, Winnie Harlow hosted a party on 5th December where people from all horizons were brought together for a unique champagne experience.

The House spread Art of the Wild by setting up this space on the beach. It was fitted with graphics created by Luftwerk, a creative duo commissioned by the House last year to interpret its cultural heritage, in particular the anemone motif designed in 1902 by Emile Gallé - one of the masters of Art Nouveau - that adorns bottles from the Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque collection. The immersion continued with a virtual reality journey that began in the heart of the magnetic nature of Art of the Wild and took guests on an exploration of the House's cellars in Epernay, Champagne. Rounding things off, a photobooth in the same style was set up to capture highlights of the festivities.

Created for the House by British designer Bethan Laura Wood, HyperNature takes the form of a tree with an extravagant, intense presence. It proposes a new, whimsical champagne experience where flutes can be "plucked" directly from the branches, as a grape might be plucked from a vine. It is also on display in the Collectors Lounge of Design Miami/ throughout the fair.

EDEN by Perrier-Jouët presents two packed days and nights of Art of the Wild events, during which guests can taste a selection of Maison Perrier-Jouët's cuvées. On the 5th, the House hosted a talk with Bethan Laura Wood, organised by Dazed Arts. On the 6th, Maison Perrier-Jouët is welcoming a creative brunch with food designer Laila Gohar and sunset cocktails to accompany a private trunk show presenting the new jewellery collection by Jade Jagger. Rounding off the residency will be the launch of the CR Fashion Book Calendar with Estee Lauder. A complete schedule covering lifestyle, fashion, food and design, reflecting the House's openness to all forms of creativity.

At the EDEN by Perrier-Jouët, just as at Design Miami/, the House shares its approach to champagne that stands apart from customary codes, stemming from its creative freedom and unconventional observations of nature, supported by a community of free spirits who share its values. These "Artisans of the Wild" come from a variety of creative fields, including design, fashion and gastronomy - represented by Bethan Laura Wood, Winnie Harlow and Laila Gohar, respectively - as well as art and hospitality. Along with its Artisans of the Wild, the House is writing a new chapter in a story that has been unfolding for over 200 years.

His keynote will cover the evolving and revolutionary ways to view and commit to this critical agent of transformation for success in the marketplace. Key takeaways will include:

  • Examples of various forms of the CInO role and how to choose the right one for your company
  • Success factors that make the difference to corporations that commit
  • Insight on why the CInO is not a transition role, but a career

Pradeep Narendran, Vice President, JPMorgan Chase and Company, will also lead a session at the eventâ€�”Successful Sprints or Just Sloppy Thinking? The Rainmaker's Guide to the Proper Execution of Agile. This session will explore the benefits of becoming an Agile organization, as opposed to a traditional one. Narendran will examine whether "Agile" is just a buzzword and share his cross-industry expertise on overcoming hurdles, celebrating victories, and defining benchmarks.

He will also provide metrics to evaluate Agile maturity in the workplace, a framework to enable and enhance Agile via a higher degree of collaboration, and current Agile best practices.

SKF Consolidates Aerospace Manufacturing in Europe; Proposes to Close Site in Stonehouse

  [06-December-2018]  

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Dec 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SKF today announces a consolidation of its aerospace manufacturing footprint in Europe. Consequently, and subject to consultation with local unions, SKF proposes to close its bearing manufacturing site in Stonehouse, UK.

The Group will now enter into a period of consultation with employee representatives. Should the proposal be confirmed, manufacturing at the site in Stonehouse will cease by 31 December 2021, with production moved to SKF's aerospace bearing manufacturing sites in Italy and France.

Bernd Stephan, President, Automotive and Aerospace, says: "This consolidation is necessary in order to secure a continued competitive offering for the Aerospace industry, as it shifts away from legacy engines and aircraft to more modern ones. We will be able to make better use of more modern machines and manufacturing technologies at our sites in other parts of Europe."

Stonehouse currently employs approximately 185 people. The Group is committed to engaging with employees and their representatives and seeks to offer a wide range of support services together with a redundancy package, should the proposal be confirmed, with a focus on securing the site's continued operations until December 2021.

Dutch Brands Perceived as the Most Innovative in Europe as Technology Dominates the Ranking

  [06-December-2018]  

AMSTERDAM, December 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Disruptive 'new giants' rank alongside iconic brands in the first BrandZ™ Top 30 Most Valuable Dutch Brands report

Dutch brands are punching above their weight compared to the rest of Europe as the Netherlands upholds its long tradition as one of the world's leading trading nations. The inaugural BrandZ™ Top 30 Most Valuable Dutch Brands 2019 report, announced today by WPP and Kantar, has a total brand value of $93 billion and is stronger and more valuable than brand rankings from larger economies such as Spain, Italy, Australia and Indonesia. Furthermore, the total value of the Dutch Top 30 is proportionally larger, when compared to overall GDP, than the top 30 brands in the UK, Germany or France</ span>.

     (Logo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/780424/Kantar_Logo.jpg )

Consumers rated Dutch brands as highly innovative, beating the scores of most other European countries and equalling those of Germany for innovation. Home-grown tech brands like Thuisbezorgd.nl (No.12, $1.05 billion) and Booking.com (No.3, $11.87 billion) are now reshaping how European consumers eat and travel. Dutch innovation has allowed newer upstarts, such as file-transferring site WeTransfer and Additive Industries, a leader in the 3D printing space, to stand out in their respective categories.

Oil and gas company Royal Dutch Shell tops the first BrandZ Dutch ranking at No.1 with a brand value of $20.66 billion. Beer brand Heineken is second with a value of $11.88 billion, closely followed by travel e-commerce company, Booking.com.

The BrandZ™ Top 30 Most Valuable Brands study combines consumer interviews about thousands of brands with validated financial data to rank the Netherlands' most valuable brands. It analyses their strengths, identifies the key forces that are driving brand value growth in this market, and is the first of what will be an annual study tracking and predicting changes in the evolving trajectories of the Netherlands' most valuable brands.

The Netherlands benefits from having a unique collection of brands - some with great heritage and some from the 21st century that have, in a short time, grown into titans. The successful rise of brands such as Thuisbezorgd.nl and Booking.com ranked in the Top 30, highlights how the entrepreneurial spirit of the region sits comfortably alongside beloved beer brand Brand (No, 29, $120 million), the oldest brand in any of the BrandZ rankings around the world.

Bram van Schaik, CEO Kantar Insights Netherlands, said: "The Netherlands is fortunate to have a collection of trusted brands that have long-standing national heritage, while newer disruptor brands are able to succeed in a region that incentivises entrepreneurship. From the docks of Rotterdam to the runways of Schiphol, Dutch excellence is being exported worldwide and embraced by consumers.

"Though modest in size, the Netherlands has always performed well compared to other regions in the global economy and continues to move confidently into the future. Innovation is at the heart of everything Dutch brands do and it's important for businesses not just to reach their audience through memorable communications, but also to move them with strategies rooted in cultural insight."

The 2019 BrandZ Top 10 Most Valuable Dutch Brands   

             Rank         Brand              Category           Brand Value (US$ billion)         1      Royal Dutch Shell     Oil & Gas                        $20.66         2      Heineken              Beer                             $11.88         3      Booking.com           Travel Agencies                  $11.87         4      ING                   Banks                            $10.73         5      Philips               Technology                       $10.71         6      KPN                   Telecom Providers                 $4.12         7      Rabobank              Banks                             $4.10         8      ABN AMRO              Banks                             $3.39         9      Ziggo                 Telecom Providers                 $2.71         10     Spar                  Retail                            $1.91 

Of the twelve categories represented in the ranking, Tech & Online Services dominate, contributing over $23 billion - a quarter of the ranking's total value, while Banks contribute the second largest volume share (20%). Beer is the largest category by the number of brands represented with six brands, including Heineken (No.2, $11.88 billion) and the beer label Brand (No.29, $120 million), which has a heritage spanning more than 600 years.

Established iconic brands like Philips (No.5, $10.71 billion), Shell, and Heineken are continuing to embrace innovation, venturing into cutting-edge health technology, liquefied natural gas, and the booming Chinese market, respectively. Dutch banks ING (No.4, $10.73 billion) and ABN AMRO (No, 8, $3.39 billion) are pioneering new approaches to mobile banking and payments, finding willing partners in tech-savvy Dutch shoppers, who lead Europe in their adoption of contactless purchasing.

David Roth, WPP commented: "Many of the ranking's brands score highly on both innovation and purpose; a combination that feels distinctively Dutch. While BrandZ global data shows that brands perceived as innovative grow seven times faster than other brands, in a mature and crowded market like the Netherlands, having a strong purpose is helping brands to stand out, resonate with consumers and deliver growth."

Other trends highlighted in this year's BrandZ Top 30 Most Valuable Dutch Brands report and ranking are:

  • Active living and conscious eating - In a bid to meet the Government's proposal of increasing a vegetarian diet, retailer brands such as Albert Heijn (No.14, $916 million) are investing in more vegan take-away options, while Dutch chocolate maker Tony's Chocolonely sells '100 percent slave-free' confectionery, choosing to deal directly with local cocoa farming groups.

  • Cash-free is king - The Netherlands is one of the most cash-free countries in Europe, with cash transactions making up only 45% of retail purchases. Dutch banking brands are at the forefront of mobile payments technology in Europe; ABN AMRO has found success with its Tikkie app at home, while ING is a major investor in the Payconiq and Payvision platforms.

  • Sustainable and secure society - The Netherlands has a global reputation as a leader in progressive sustainability and public policy and gender equality. There is room for brands to tell stories about how they are supporting and empowering their own workforces as part of efforts to create a more equitable society. Commitment to serving a higher environmental purpose extends beyond what is visible to the eye. In the banking sector for example, brands like SNS (No.25, $199 million), ABN AMRO, and Rabobank (No.7, $4.10 billion) have begun to define and implement sustainable finance guidelines, while Triodos and ASN (No.30, $106 million) are world leaders in the green investing field.

  • Addressing the whole country - Unlike in many European countries, there is no single business capital in the Netherlands. Dutch brands cannot capture an "urban audience" by only targeting an archetypal Amsterdam local. Brands should ensure that their planning encompasses the scope of what it means to live in the Netherlands today, without overlooking the country's many small towns and rural areas.

The BrandZ Top 30 Most Valuable Dutch Brands report and ranking, as well as other brand insights for key regions of the world and 18 market sectors, are available online here. The reports, rankings, charts, articles and more can also be accessed through the BrandZ app, which is free to download for Apple IOS and all Android devices from www.brandz.com/mobile or by searching for BrandZ in the iTunes or Google Play app stores. 

Background and methodology 

Commissioned by WPP, the valuation behind the BrandZ™ Top 30 Most Valuable Dutch Brands was conducted by brand equity research experts Kantar. The methodology mirrors that used to calculate the annual BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands ranking, which is now in its 13th year.

The ranking combines rigorously analysed market data from Bloomberg with extensive consumer insights from over 3.6 million consumers around the world, covering more than 122,000 different brands in over 50 markets - including opinions from over 24,000 Dutch consumers on over 450 brands in 32 categories.

The ability of any brand to power business growth relies on how it is perceived by customers. As the only brand valuation ranking grounded in consumer opinion, BrandZ's analysis enables Dutch brands to identify their strength in the market and provides clear strategic guidance on how to boost value for the long-term.

The BrandZ Top 30 Most Valuable Dutch Brands is the most definitive and robust ranking of the country's brands available, and the brands ranked all meet these eligibility criteria:

  • Brand is originally created in the Netherlands
  • The brand is owned by a listed company or a private company with financials publicly available

The suite of BrandZ brand valuations and reports also includes China, India, Indonesia, Latin America, Brazil, Spain, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Italy.
