Markets offering brands opportunities in spring

Normality is on the horizon and as we get ready for a post-pandemic world, our workspacewellness and day-to-day needs are changing too.

With this in mind, Hurst Media has compiled essential Checklists to plan your goals for the coming months ahead.

In-line with post-lockdown life, the highest consumer appeal therefore lies in a number of sectors.

This includes: Retirement, Business, Finance & Legal, Travel, Green & Ethical and Health & Wellbeing.


Thanks to the successful rollout of the vaccine and the recently announced ‘roadmap’, the return of international travel is becoming a reality once again. Lockdown is sure to be a distant memory while sipping a cocktail by the sea or enjoying a cosy stay-cation in the countryside.

Therefore mandatory face coverings, hygiene products and supplements have become essential purchases for travel and social activities. This comes as businesses and workplaces start to reopen, while ensuring the health and safety of members of staff and the public.

A recent study* has also found that the plight of the planet has become more important to the nation while in lockdown, with 81 per cent of people in the UK becoming more concerned about environmental issues.


With massive changes across the globe, business owners are assessing many aspects of their operations with a greater emphasis on flexibility and work-life balance. The services and products here can make all the difference in an everchanging climate.

As the end of lockdown approaches, businesses are considering their options on how their space will look in the new normal. It is also important to ensure that staff feel secure returning to their work environment, all while staying legally sound.


Now that life is starting to settle again, it is the perfect time to get money and retirement plans in place. Particularly as the end of the tax year is due in less than a month, so there’s some important factors that investors, savers and everyday consumers need to consider in order to boost their financial position.

The pandemic has created major uncertainty for consumers’ personal finances. While some confusion continues to reign, many will want to hear from brands with reassurance that they can help.

The coronavirus may have also affected pensions or investments. Depending on plans after work or for those withdrawing money from a pension, you may have to consider how this affects your retirement.
