Future Festival’s Seattle Business Conference will begin with a comprehensive overview of the 6 Patterns of Opportunity and the 18 Megatrends that are currently shaping consumer insights. The rest of the day will be filled with highly curated sessions that will explore future trends and pinpoint overlooked opportunities. The innovation conference will end with an immersive Future Party and you will go home with $4,000 worth of practical takeaway materials.

Learn to navigate chaos with our tactical guidebook for disruptive thinking, innovation, and change. The new double-book includes The Innovation Handbook, an updated version of the award-winning bestseller: Exploiting Chaos.

In our era of rapid change, disruption and possibility, there are endless opportunities within your grasp. Everyone wants innovation, but most people don’t know how to make it happen, frequently falling into common neurological traps that lead to missed potential. How does one avoid these traps in order to attain true success?

The Seattle Business Conference will take place in the heart of the city’s downtown core. Known as a hotbed for innovation and home to Fortune 500 brands such as Amazon, Starbucks, and Microsoft, the city is the perfect place to see future trends and shifting consumer insights in action. In fact, Seattle is often cited as one of the best places to observe pilot projects and new products in their early days.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Seattle area, attending Trend Hunter’s one-day Seattle Innovation Conference is the perfect opportunity to spend some time exploring. While major sights such as the Space Needle and Pike Place Market are likely to top any to-do list, be sure to check out other innovative hotspots across the city. This includes well known spaces such as the Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room, or local haunts such as Stonington Gallery.
