Transcript of "trendwatching.com's INNOVATION CELEBRATION"

  1. 1. INNOVATION CELEBRATION The most bang on-trend innovations from 2014 so far. GLOBAL TREND BRIEFING July 2014
  2. 2. When was the last time you checked the pulse of consumerism? Because it’s beating faster than ever! Every day, our network of spotters notify us about the most compelling new consumer-facing innovations they encounter. And whilst we use these to identify specific trends, there’s also one overriding meta-trend that we’re continually struck by: on an absolutely global scale, the quality and quantity of innovation is relentless, fuelled by – and at the same time fuelling – consumers’ insatiable NEWISM. The takeaway: launching your own, equally brilliant innovations* will be the only way to survive in an ever more competitive, ever more global business arena. * By innovation we mean anything that will get consumers spending, and preferably the kind of spending that involves your products, services and experiences. INNOVATION CELEBRATION 2www.trendwatching.com/trends/innovation-celebration
  3. 3. So this month, let’s simply celebrate a handful of the most bang on-trend innovations we’ve seen in 2014. Dive into this selection of global inspiration. Because while these might not all necessarily be ‘big’ disruptive threats to your business, they WILL offer you plenty to think about during your next planning session! Take each example, even (especially!) those from different industries and markets, and question if and how it could suggest exciting new potential opportunities for YOU. Because if you don’t respond to the changes in consumer expectations and behaviors that the examples below are establishing, someone else will ;) INNOVATION CELEBRATION 3www.trendwatching.com/trends/innovation-celebration
