Shelby's Trend Hunter Intro at ITWAL
Innovation Keynote Speaker

Jeremy Gutsche delivered the innovation keynote at Shelby's Trend Hunter Intro at ITWAL in Toronto on March 25, 2015.

Trend Hunter President, Shelby Walsh, was invited to give the opening keynote at the 2015 ITWAL Marketplace––a conference that brings suppliers and distributors together at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto. The event fosters a unique opportunity for these two symbiotic forces of the commercial and consumer markets to network and initiate new business, exploring innovative strategies for selling. Food manufacturers constitute a large percentage of the attendees, with around 100 vendors setting up stalls in the showroom to feature their latest and greatest products.

Following an award ceremony to celebrate food service and retail suppliers, Shelby addressed ITWAL shareholders, members, and corporate guests, offering a peek into Trend Hunter's approach to studying consumer insight. An interactive exercise got the full audience involved in dreaming up cutting-edge pop-up shops, with even more outside-the-box ideas emerging after her segment about exploiting convergent patterns of opportunity.
