Early CES access: Our predictions for 2020

Stop interrupting. Start inspiring
The age of interruption is over

It’s true. Over the last decade, we’ve made great technological progress as a society. But many of the innovations designed to make our lives better, have disconnected us and—according to our recently released Pinterest 100 report—left people looking for new ways to find balance.

Our prediction for 2020? The age of interruption is over. People are over the annoyance of ads and technology getting in their way—they want and expect more from businesses. Rather than disrupt, the next generation of brands have to inspire. 

In the future, successful advertising needs to do more than just help people decide what to buy. It needs to inspire them. It needs to get them dreaming about who they want to be, and what comes next.

See you soon

If you’re headed to the show, we can’t wait to share our vision for the future with you, and show you how to create advertising that truly inspires. Get all the details on when and where we’ll be speaking below.
