As we noted before, TrendWatching provides very useful insights about coming trends. For example, see Useful Free TrendWatching Resources. Today, we focus on the state of play. Is there anywhere that we don’t want to play? 🙂
TrendWatching’s State of Play
TrendWatching created an animated slide show on “THE STATE OF PLAY — 25 reasons engaging your customers will never be the same”:
“Play is a serious matter. We play in public. And we play in private. We play online, offline, and waiting in line. And we play in stadiums. We play at home. And we play on alien worlds. We work to play. You play at work; and that’s OK. We play to win. And we pay for skins. We play to learn. And we pay to watch. We play with your competition. And we play on dates. We date to find playmates. And we play on good teams. We play with bad sports. And we play to keep fit. We play new games and ancient sports. Usually, we play till the end. And maybe after!”
“Play is a deeply held human desire. Changing behaviors, new tools, and emerging expectations related to having a good time impact all of you. Whether you work for Asia’s busiest airport, design apparel for Adidas, or run your own small business: play should be on your radar.”
“Here we will look at 25 global innovations that are delighting consumers today. Your mission: use them to inspire your own efforts to delight the customer of tomorrow!”
