The Guide is an aid for entrepreneurs to plan their actions adapted to the new realities. Divided into two large blocks: one addresses behavior and consumption, with themes such as connected life, celebrations, home and life in order and “compensating for chaos”. The other major theme, focused on market and management, presents new positioning, digital world, new business models, sustainability economics and inclusion to expand the market.
Within each block, the macro and micro trends for the coming years were listed, according to consumer behavior. Information was sought from trend reports made by several technology companies and studies around the world.

Macro and Micro
Trends The Trend Guide is divided into nine macro trends and over 40 micro trends. Macrotrends are related to behavioral mindsets originated by society’s needs. “These mindsets are so large that they affect, simultaneously, a wide range of sectors of the industry and for a longer term, from 15 to 30 years”, explains Reck.
The content also presents a context of the present, of the generations (such as the boomers, millennials and Generation Z) that live together, of globalization and digitalization of information and mental health. There is also a glossary to facilitate the understanding of terms in English and related to new digital and business trends.

A latent issue in the guide is inclusion, from racial and social issues, with a focus on people with disabilities (PwD), to Pet Families, who seek programs in which their pets are included, such as hotels and restaurants.
