IXDS Pioneers Dinner @MCBW 2019 Why will businesses fail without design?

To tackle this challenge together with our business partners and fellow industry experts, we’re organizing the IXDS Pioneers Dinner on March 14 along the Munich Creative Business Week motto "Design Connects” at our Munich studio.

This exclusive event will bring together a curated group of experts leading the way in connected living, business transformation and mobility spheres, for a night of dynamic discussion, exchange and fresh perspectives!

Update: Following a wonderful event, we compiled a wrap-up and picture gallery for you. Enjoy and see you at the next IXDS Pioneers Dinner!

Get ready for a giant dose of inspiration from business and innovation champions such as José Eduardo Sánchez (Hardt Hyperloop) on prototyping their services; Sandra Rolle and Jessica Covi (BMW Group) sharing their learnings on new technologies like voice user and gesture interfaces; and Tobias Ködel (the force behind Daimler’s Leadership 2020 initiative) on successful explorations into disruptive business models.

We’ll also be showcasing prototypes – including how to make future products and services more tangible using VR!

Following this, a little get-together from 8:30pm will bear even more opportunities for exchange and networking with this exclusive group of experts and executives over drinks!
