GIMA (Garden Industry Manufacturer’s Association) has confirmed that it has commissioned trend forecasting agency Scarlet Opus to deliver a Consumer & Design Insight & Trends report, designed to offer delegates access to S/S24 trend information, with details of how these trends meet consumers’ desires, attitudes and aesthetics.
The interactive report will be launched with a webinar where four key trends for 2024 will be explored, emphasising what’s driving change and the fundamental shifts impacting consumer behaviour. GIMA says: ‘With a keen focus on gardening and outdoor living, this is the only content of its kind available in the UK.’
The Scarlet Opus team will also delve deep into colours and design trends that look set to shape consumer demand and spend, including a look at materials, shapes, patterns and textiles which consumers will be looking to adorn their homes with. The content is suited to companies looking to future-proof their new product development, visual merchandising, packaging and marketing plans.
Everyone who joins the webinar will receive direct access to the online event, where Scarlet Opus will present the report. A copy of the webinar recording, plus an exclusive e-book, will be available to delegates post-event, unveiling even more research and consumer marketing content gathered while identifying the trends.
