SPOT Interactive conference 30th of April 2015
Is it possible to address everyday problems in our society using the skill set from within the creative digital sector? From the way we receive healthcare, education to interacting with public services and utilities?
Interactive, visual and engaging forms of storytelling have already proved that creative competencies can add real value to commercial businesses and deliver a smarter customer experience.
But the questions remain: How do we as a society take advantage of the creative digital competencies? What is the market potential? How could this be created, managed and delivered? And what obstacles lie ahead?
Creative businesses are increasingly recognized for the wider value they bring to the economy and society as a whole. At this year’s SPOT Interactive conference we will focus on current challenges in our society and how the creative digital industries might best respond in its attempt to address them.
The 30th of April you will get to meet successful International and Danish media innovators, who share their experiences and valuable insights within this field.
