Why Join?

‘Fast changing flavour profiles and constant new product launches make it harder than ever to discern fleeting fads from true mindset shifts. Our Futures Forum will help identify the key trends that will take over the food and drink conversation in 2020.’

Martin Raymond, co-founder, The Future Laboratory

The online event will take place from 3:30pm to 5:30pm AEST. Each of our trend presentations will be supported by a programme of live talks, panels and Q&A sessions, designed to keep you focused and motivated while you work from home.

The video presentations and live Q&A sessions will be available for you to watch on-demand following the live event.
