For the last 10 years I’ve picked out the digital and marketing trends and developments which I believe will shape the industry and digital/marketing planning and thinking in the year ahead.

I recommend you also look through Econsultancy’s Trends Hub for our experts’ predictions around digital marketing disciplines like data and analytics, customer experience, ecommerce, digital advertising, search, social media and B2B.
