Futurists in Residence: THE FUTURE LABORATORY
Building on the success of Corinthia Hotel London’s hugely popular ‘In Residence’ programme, we are delighted to announce our partners, and founders of The Future Laboratory, Chris Sanderson and Martin Raymond. The year-long programme is available to hotel guests and non-residents alike, with trend forecasting discussed in a series of talks, installations, briefings, future rooms, dinners and activities.
The conversations and exchanges will be a platform for inspirational experiences, give great insight into future trends in luxury, and underpin the forward-thinking way in which Corinthia Hotel London operates. Guests can expect events and discussions on a variety of scales and topics, from smaller campfire chats to larger Future Forums.
“We will be defining luxury and how it’s changed and how it will change,” explains Martin Raymond, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the company: “Hospitality is changing. It is no longer about the transactional, but about the immersive, experiential, and bespoke. It is also about classifications based on customer behaviours rather than industry definitions.”
