We have pulled together (at least) three great talks that touch on designing for people interacting with each other and the spaces they're in. From hotels, through to offices and crowded car shows and ferries. Going beyond the smart home IoT tech fest and voice interfaces that we hear so much of, and considering the people, the architecture, the physical objects and all the interpays between them.

All brought to you within the newly designed R/GA office space...

Jaguar Stand Tour — Helen Nic Giolla Rua, Imagination

Departure & the Hannahtron 3000 — Matt Lindop, Alan Bull, Premier Inn

Hotels are brilliant at recognising when someone has arrived, but often less good at the departure experience, missing data capture in the process. Premier Inn have been working with Map Project Office on a pilot project to connect customer behaviour with backstage processes, to improve both guest satisfaction and operational efficiency.
