Trends. We all seek them. Just hearing that single word -trend - ignites a desire to know what the next best/bigger/better/bolder “thing” will be and sends people clamoring to get their hands on it first. The bigger question is this: how do you seek out new trends? And more importantly – how can you predict where new trends will emerge? If the crystal ball on the corner of your desk needs new batteries, this session is for you. Join us for a high-energy, information-filled, leave-you-with-your-mind-spinning session. First we’ll explore where and how to find and identify trends. Then we’ll dive into a rapid-fire listing of current trends, hot topics, and potential future trends in a variety of parks and recreation facets. Unleash your inner Trend Seeker in this thought-provoking session!
