At The Future Laboratory, we host a range of trend events throughout the year to showcase our latest research and hear from globally renowned industry leaders and the minds behind our trends

A trend event is an opportunity, either online or in-person, to delve into the latest research from our trends intelligence platform, LS:N Global, and hear directly from our analysts and strategists through thought-provoking presentations and Q&As.

At each event, we are joined by exceptional panels of global industry speakers to discuss and debate key themes and sector trends, from the state of luxury consumer research to the future of sustainability.

Our analysts provide an exclusive look at new in-depth macrotrends that will be available on LS:N Global, as well as the drivers shaping these sectors. Our trend events are designed to look ahead at what the future holds for an industry in transition and to provide tangible solutions that produce results.

Each online event includes access to:

  • The hour-long Zoom session, featuring an overview of our new trends
  • A guest speaker panel and live Q&A session
  • An executive summary PDF of the research featured
  • The on-demand recording to watch at your own convenience

As well as our online event offering, we are also excited to be hosting our first physical Trend Briefing event since 2019, which you can find out more about below.
