Trend Immersion Conferences

Trend Hunter's Future Festival Includes a Series of Trend Safaris

— September 24, 2015 — Marketing
Only one week away, Trend Hunter's Future Festival is a fast-paced consumer insights conference like no other. Designed to be everything a traditional conference is lacking, Future Festival is a multi-day experience where innovation professionals and their teams take a step back and prototype their path to future success while experiencing emerging trends firsthand.

Of course, one aspect of Future Festival that is particularly original and exciting is the planned Trend Safari experiences. The recently announced activities include a street food tasting during a live graffiti installation in the city's Graffiti Alley and a tasting tour of one of the city's foremost micro roasters and coffee shops. Other inspiring sessions will include an introduction to urban beekeeping, brewing craft beer and sushi-making with renowned Toronto chef Sang Kim of Blowfish fame.
