    Dear Trendspotters-

    I’m the editorial director of Sporting Goods Business, a 40-year old business to business trade publication for sporting goods manufacturers and retailers. I’m writing a feature on the influence women have on consumer purchasing behavior. I wonder if there are current trends or other findings from your reports that would be applicable ? Sorry for the short notice but I will need any contributions by noon Wednesday, Feb 25. Contributions will be appropriately credited.

    Thanks for your help.

    Take care,

    We have a client who is interested in understanding which trends (social, political, economic, environmental, political, legal, educational, demographic) will impact soft drink consumption in the future (3 to 5 years) , both globally and at a European level. In addition, if you have any data at an country level, we might be interested in that as well.

    All non-alcoholic beverages are of interest, drunk alone or with food, for any reason, at any time of the day. In addition, if you are aware of trends that will affect alcoholic beverages, that might have a knock on effect to soft drink consumption, we would be interested in these as well.

    Please could you let us know what information you have available free of charge and what you could offer on a bespoke basis and at what cost.
