Phew! We just wrapped up our Chicago Trend Event on Thursday 10 November, and it’s safe to say our debut in the Windy City was as raucous as we expected — especially considering results of a certain election only a matter of hours before…
After an action-packed day of trends, innovation and a ton of lightbulb moments, it’s natural to want to wind down. So, after the curtain falls on our Chicago Trend Event on November 10th – which sees speakers from Google to Mattel and Cotopaxi to Leo Burnett touch the stage with the insights set to shape YOUR 2017 – we’ve partnered with an extra special venue right around the way from Morgan Manufacturing: Life Creative.
As keen-eyed followers may be aware, tw:in – TrendWatching’s Insight Network – have recently been organizing casual meet-ups for our sharpest Spotters and subscribers based all round the world.
We’ve already hit Amsterdam, Lagos, Lisbon and Singpore, so it’s only right that we cover some new ground for the next edition. Enter tw:in meet-ups: the Mexico City edition!
The curtain on stage at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art has just fallen, and that can only mean one thing: two down, three to go! Our killer speakers combined with our in-house trend gurus to spill the beans on whats in store for Antipodean brands, agencies and consumers in 2017 and beyond… but we’re not done there. Next stop? Chicago on November 10, and there’s still a chance YOU can attend too!
Phew! We just wrapped up our sold out Singapore Trend Event. Here’s a run through of what went down on the day (and what we’ve got in store for Sydney on November 3 ;).

As we touched on before the event, Lagos – Nigeria’s bustling hub – was the perfect place to kick off our first African meet-up. What went down? We’ll pass the baton on to Emeka Obia, long-time tw:in Super Spotter and long-time TrendWatching collaborator, to run down the ins and out of what proved to be a fruitful session.
