Find below some testimonials from previous attendees and partners who have worked with us in the past.

The 2021 Tends Colloquium was an important milestone for Trend Studies in Portugal. The event connected Trend Researchers and peers from around the world, in a valuable opportunity to exchange knowledge and to learn. I would define the colloquium as a perfect ecosystem to connect the dots and to extract valuable insights for research purposes and for the industry.

It was a great opportunity to validate one of my ideas for a paper and have feedback from some of the most prolific specialists in the trend research area. Watching the other presentations and panels was also very productive — not to mention fun!

The colloquium consolidates itself as a space for discussion and reflection in the area of ​​Trend Studies and Cultural Management, bringing as a final result important contributions from professionals, researchers, students, masters and doctors. We live in a hyperconnected world where the excess of information often makes it difficult to curate what is actually relevant, and the colloquium fulfills this role very well by mapping the main signs and main sociocultural trends.
