SMWi Toronto 2016 is an independent Social Media Week event that is set to take place between June 6th and 10th. One of the highlights of this year's event includes a session with Trend Hunter's VP of Research Strategy Armida Ascano.
On June 9th, Armida will give a presentation titled 'Gen Z: The Limitless Generation,' which explores the behavior, mindset and lifestyle of the generation following Millennials. Although this group makes up more than a quarter of the population, Gen Z remains a mystery to many brands. The session will cover many different characteristics of Gen Z consumers, from the way that they use social media to how they perceive adulthood.
With Gen Z's enormous influence over the evolution of social media, the session is a must-see for those interested in understanding how these young consumers are shaping business, society and culture.
