Why Attend?

You might think the future is unpredictable. We don’t. At WGSN, we believe you can define your future today, by exploring the key global trends that will affect the world tomorrow. But to do this, you have to step outside of your everyday. You have to look for fresh perspectives. You have to think beyond your computer screen. So we created WGSN Futures, a day-long event filled with inspirational content and networking that will change the way you see the world and your business.

This year’s theme is the Future Consumer. You spend a lot of time thinking about them – what they love (or loathe); where they shop; where they socialise; what they dream. But how do you anticipate what’s ahead?
