Future Festival Day 2

Team-Based Workshops and Toronto-Wide Trend Safaris

Future Festival Day 2 featured an action-packed schedule that kicked off at the Fairmont Royal York ballroom and ended with an epic after party back at Trend Hunter headquarters. The engaging morning programming featured collaborative results-driven sessions that worked to expose overlooked patterns of opportunity for attendees and their teams.

Future Festival's series of Trend Safaris offered attendees a firsthand look at the trends that will come to define 2016.
