In the aftermath of Trump's victory, we were making sense of the future at #TrendsLiveCHI.


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...

What went down? Here's a recap:

The Day

We rolled out ALL the game-changing trends for 2017, heard from local businesses and leading innovators across industries, shared innovative ideas, made trend babies… and had loads of fun while we were at it!

The Guest list

In Chicago, some of the world's most exciting brands, agencies and startups came together to make meaningful connections. They shared their toughest business challenges and learned how to innovate into 2017 and beyond.

we’re looking forward to the remaining 350+ trend-hungry professionals set to join us in London!

London: The Speakers

Led by TrendWatching’s global team of in-demand thought leaders - and with guest speakers from organisations including Oglivy & Mather, The Body Shop & Wayra (and that's just for starters ;) - we’ll unveil 2017’s crucial trends, and dive deep into the key challenges and powerful opportunities they present.

Here's a selection of our speaker roster for the day:
