Trendwatching: London Consumer Trend Seminar 
2 June, 2015
London, UK
Our annual London Consumer Trend Seminar is an intense and focused day where we feature our most important insights into the future of consumerism and share best practices from the work we do with clients to help them realise it. Join us if you want more than another 'festival of ideas', where too often the reality is a barrage of thinly disguised sales-pitches, delivered by whoever the organisers can persuade to speak for free. Enough. Your time is worth more than that.

If you use, enjoy and trust our online content then this exclusive event will supercharge your understanding and application of trends, and give you a bucketload of insights, content and tools to use with your team or clients, all for an incredibly affordable price!
