COMMERCE proposed by the organization:
Without a doubt, the years from 2020 are already part of the history books. The world has gone - and is going - through a difficult and important
moment, which directly reflects on consumption habits. The Covid-19 pandemic has arrived and completely changed the way to consume. The
concept of shopping with a preference for digital channels has become a reality, and the world has started to shop online, many for the first time.
Social isolation and the home office were accompanied by the habit of thinking and researching very well about the items that are necessary to
live with maximum quality and comfort at home. At the same time, impulse purchases increased as people looked for something to emotionally
fulfill them in a context of chaos and uncertainty.
Consumers increasingly digital
Even living in the information age, not all jobs and studies were in digital format before Covid-19. With social isolation, people started to live the
experience of studying and working at home, through various platforms that help in communication, which has been strengthening and
strengthening the relationship with the digital world. In this scenario with reduced possibilities on the one hand, consumers find alternatives on
the other. The option was to better understand the virtual shopping environment, starting to trust more in the security of their payments and
delivery times, for example. In addition, entertainment applications and platforms needed to innovate their technologies and forms of content
production to meet new expectations of a more digitally active population – as well as commerce companies in general, which needed to adapt
the physical environment to the online one.
This is a trend that will remain and create hybrid paths. In the new context, companies intend to keep working from home in an integral way, as
well as courses, medical care and other services. In addition, the comfort of shopping without leaving home must continue with great force
The news changes daily, which means that not everything is known about the “new normal” quickly. But the fact is that, with the rise of this type
of sales and changes in consumption habits, the relationship between consumers and companies has changed forever. Welcome to new
consumption habits in the digital world.
h) In addition to the prizes for the categories, special prizes may be awarded, offered by our supporters, during the registration and
i) Along the registered artwork, the artist must attach a complete registration form with legibly writing. lt is also requested reduced
