Here's your look into our exclusive IXDS Pioneers Dinner around the theme, “Why will businesses fail without design?” 

We brought together business and innovation champions both on and off the stage. José Eduardo Sánchez (Hardt Hyperloop), Sandra Rolle and Jessica Covi (BMW Group), Tobias Ködel (the force behind Daimler’s 'Leadership 2020' initiative), Suhail Khan (E.ON), and Florian Weingarten (B/S/H Digital Ventures) all shared insights during our panel discussion, fireside chat, and keynote. We were proud to have high-ranking representatives of Airbus, Audi, Google, Hardt Hyperloop, Henkel, Kärcher, Miele, Siemens Healthineers, Steelcase and many more were in the audience, alongside good food, drinks, and a healthy dose of inspiration.

Our agenda for the evening included delving deep into VR prototyping, the design of complex future systems such as Hyperloop, the rise and importance of voice interfaces, and exploring disruptive (but successful) business models.

“My mind is racing from all the amazing conversations I had. I’ve got ideas to chew on for the next two weeks,”said IXDS Co-Entrepreneur Tracy Rolling after hosting the campfire talk on “From Tradition to Transformation – How digital changes your products, services and businesses”.

We’ve got more Pioneers Dinners planned including one on the occasion of DMEA (Connecting HealthCare IT). Places will be limited, so if you know you'll be in Berlin, grab a spot by emailing us at pr@ixds.com. We'd love for you to join us.
