The Future of Celebration 2024 Forecast: Out now

The Future of Celebration 2024

Our Future of Celebration 2024 trend forecast is out now

From birthday celebrations to Mother’s Day, from marking a life milestone like moving to a new home or expressing ‘thinking of you’ sentiments, this trend forecast is designed to help bring fresh ideas to all celebrations and occasions in 2024.

Against a backdrop of global unrest and financial crisis, celebration offers the respite so desperately needed in 2024. An escapist desire dominates but is coupled with a search for authenticity. This drives a fresh and honest take on who we are, what we want to celebrate and how.

In a noticeable shift for 2024, people reach a stage of empathy ‘burnout’. Our protective response as individuals is an almost nihilistic desire to put aside social graces and to embrace what makes us happy – in whatever form that might take. This results in trends at polar opposite ends of the spectrum, as key occasions offer a moment of distraction, pleasure or restoration.
