Announcing Trending 2018 – Foresight Factory’s Annual Conference


I’m delighted to announce Trending 2018, Foresight Factory’s annual global conference that will take place on Thursday 19th October 2017, in London.

It would be cheeky of us to invite you to purchase tickets now, as we’re still working on themes and speakers, but if you think you might like to attend you can pre-register your interest and save the date in your calendar.  We’ll drop you a note with a special discount on the Early Bird ticket price as soon as the agenda is unveiled in a few weeks.  Trending 2017 was heavily oversubscribed, so expect spaces to go fast once registration is opened up.

What we can tell you now is that we’re moving to King’s Place and introducing break-out sessions in the afternoon, so that we can discuss predictive consumer trends that are better tailored to you. We are making sure that the day is as valuable for you and your business as it can possibly be, so that you leave with actionable insights on the themes that will be front-of-mind for consumers in 2018.

There’ll be an economic update, keynotes on the big trends and contextual drivers impacting consumers globally, training workshops and the opportunity to experience innovations first-hand at our Future Lounge – the showcase area, where you can meet our curated selection of start-ups. Some highlights of last year’s conference were VR production company Visualise who specialise in exceptional VR filmmaking and immersive experiences for brand storytelling, emotions-based software solutions company Sensum and Smith and Sinclair makers of the world’s first cocktail pastilles.

And, of course, we’re already on the hunt for gadgets to keep Barry occupied on stage.

Interested to find out more?  Here’s a short video clip reel of Trending 2017.
