The Future Laboratory is famed for its Trend Briefings and Futures Forums, which it has presented in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide over the past two decades.
For 2019, Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Chris Sanderson will be in Australia during February to offer companies and organisations the unique opportunity to experience The Future Laboratory's perceptive analysis of future trends, future markets and future consumers through the lens of their own business, consumers and strategic framework.
‘Private Briefings give us the opportunity to tailor our material to consider the individual challenges and opportunities a business faces,’ explains Sanderson. ‘Our knowledge of Australian businesses and the market also means that we can be both international in our perspective, and national in our outlook.’
For 2019 The Future Laboratory team of researchers, analysts, strategists and editors have crafted a selection of forward-looking presentations designed to equip a business with the insights and strategic thinking required to answer the most compelling issues of the day, including the rise of AI and automation, economic migration, climate change, the squeeze on the middle market and the growing discomfort with last-century methodologies and processes in the 21st-century environment.
With a series of presentations covering topics such as retail, the new consumer, food and drink, the growing wellness market and luxury, this is a chance to have The Future Laboratory’s inspirational insights delivered directly to your teams, getting 2019 off to a

This presentation series will help your brand to connect with the new consumer, exploring how gender is being reframed and how brands can be a force for real change. We also identify ways to cut through the digital noise to reach the young generation of disruptors.
: Food & Drink Futures
Fast-changing flavour profiles and constant new product launches make it harder than ever to discern fleeting fads from true mindset shifts. This in-house presentation will help identify the key trends that will take over the food and drink conversation in 2019 and beyond.
: Retail Futures
As convenience becomes paramount, brands will have to embrace or resist a world of Subconscious Commerce. This presentation will help businesses face the challenges of a post-shelf, post-packaging world and get closer to customers through unexpected retail opportunities.
: Luxury & Hospitality Futures
As overt materialism falls out of favour among a new generation of wealthy consumers, we explore new ways to create purpose-driven luxury for affluent consumers who are more socially aware than ever
: Health & Wellness Futures
In the era of Peak Wellness, individuals are demanding that brands provide a clear and tangible path to health results. This presentation is your guide to cultivating an integrated health and wellness infrastructure that puts consumers in control of their own data.
The above presentations can be tailored to suit your business needs, from training programmes to concept development workshops, external publicity launches and thought-leadership events.
