What does next year (2023) hold in store for us? Last year (2021) was not very memorable in that it was almost a cut & paste of 2020. Businesses emerged from quarantine only to face various shortages, backorder issues, or delivery issues due to everyone else’s quarantines and some environmental challenges.
This year (2023) holds some promise, despite the globe being in the grips of Covid-19’s 4th wave. The 3rd vaccine shot is being administered and it’s becoming clear we’ll need an annual booster before the world returns to normal.
Here is my annual future forecast for 2023 and beyond.
Let me start by inviting you to check out my 2023 predictions: in general, for marketing, for ad spend, for advertising, for mobile, for social media, for technology, and my own predictions for 2021.
2023 Predictions & Beyond
This year’s future forecast series of articles covers a wide variety of topics, as in years past. They’ll be split into themes and published weekly over the coming months.
How far does “& beyond” imply? Some predictions I’ve gathered for you go well beyond 2100.
Today, I start with the future in general and a few disparate topics.
