At our second Futures Forum of the year, we will unveil the ideas and innovators that are set to define the future of the health and wellness sectors.
The wellness industry has grown exponentially in recent years. While we demonstrated last year how these offerings are borrowing from the healthcare sector to demonstrate their efficacy, there is a growing realisation that the sheer abundance of products on the market is only adding to our anxieties.
On the day, we will examine how the business can strip back its offering to tap into the emerging culture of deceleration, which focuses on a much more personalised and nuanced version of wellness.

‘While wellness has made significant progress towards inclusivity, as the sector evolves it will forego a one-size-fits-all approach to focus on a more streamlined and personalised offering.’
Martin Raymond, Co-Founder, The Future Laboratory
Trends to be explored will include the rise of brands catering for a specific life stage, the extreme outdoor experiences that build mental and emotional resilience, and the performance wear that actively protects and supports the body.
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 about 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.

Richie, or The Breath Guy, is a coach, author, speaker and breathwork evangelist. Breathing is the only system in the body that is automatic and also under our control. That is not an accident of nature – it is by design and is the key to becoming a healthy, happy and high-performing individual. Richie's own experiences with breathwork have completely shifted his own life and beliefs about the potential of humans. Having travelled around the world learning from many of the modern day masters of this practice, it is now his mission to share this powerful work.
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.
