Each Edibles PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online edibles articles, videos and images. Examples:

Boutique Petsumer Retail concepts evolve to specifically cater to high-maintenance pets Implications - Rather than merely accommodating canine or feline companions, retail concepts are expanding to include dining and shopping options dedicated solely to the entertainment of pets. With upscale amenities and hyper-niche luxuries, such concepts and services speak to the growing sector of the population approaching pet ownership like child-rearing, and the redirecting of that budget toward the well-being of domestic animals.

Celebration Relaxation People search for alternative ways to partake in traditional celebrations Implications - In an effort to provide an alternative to the dance club scene, many events and celebrations are opting for a low-key atmosphere. Replacing loud music and crowds with a relaxed environment, increased social interaction and niche interests, these events redefine how even traditionally over-the-top occasions, such as New Year's Eve, can be celebrated.

Festival Soiree The festival format is being adopted for a wide variety of events Implications - While music festivals might be regarded as a strictly millennial preoccupation, the festival model is being adopted in many other contexts. Event planners are opting for larger-scale celebrations that boast many different entertainment stations as opposed to a single draw. The result is a party-within-a-party format that entices consumers, both young and old, with more choice.
