Meet Derse ECD Pete Riddell at @EventMarketer EventTech
The session, Leveraging Human Emotion in a Digital World, is a “high-tech cool-down” that will shift gears to explore the value of human emotion. We’re now in an age where drones hover over our heads and we can traverse virtual dimensions. But when it comes to successful experience design, even the most seductive digital and technical engagements can lack in genuine human connection. Don’t get us wrong – we’re just as excited for the next technology to inspire customer engagements, but the danger of over-digitalization is also a real thing. Attendees will learn how to embrace technology without compromising the human connection.
