Our Food and Drink Futures Forum will examine the latest trends, ingredients and serves that represent consumers’ changing tastes and behaviour when it comes to what they eat. From how restaurants are combatting closures to the popularisation of moderation over teetotalism, our forum will explore the short-term and long-term trends that will enable your brand to plan successfully for 2019 and beyond.
Guest speakers will include industry leaders and innovators who will deliver key insights in a rapid-fire Q&A session. We will also host short bespoke clinics with our team of strategists who will aim to address your current consumer concerns

‘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 2019.’
Martin Raymond, co-founder, The Future Laboratory
As well as gaining key consumer and industry insights, attendees will have direct access to our research and strategy teams, who will be on hand to answer questions on how best to apply and tailor these insights to your specific business needs. There will also be ample opportunities to network with your peers, industry influencers and the keynote speakers.

The Future Laboratory’s home at Elder Street has its own story to tell. The Grade II-listed property is built on the site of a Roman cemetery and in the precincts of the medieval Priory and Hospital of St Mary Spital.
Located between London’s creative capital of Shoreditch and the financial heart of the city, it’s a short walk from Shoreditch High Street and Liverpool Street stations.
