Web Summit 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal

Web Summit is the place for the technology glitterati to be next week. As the world’s first creative digital consultancy, we’re bringing top talent from Deloitte Digital studios around the world to the event. We’ll be emceeing the Marketing, Enterprise, Design, and Machine stages, and we’re hosting workshops around AR/VR and smart identities, speaking on panels, leading mentor sessions, and hosting invitees for drinks and dinner.

Deloitte Digital is building the creative digital consultancy of the future, helping brands deliver relevant, exciting experiences across all consumer, employee, and supplier touchpoints. As the leader in digital transformation strategy, we’re joining forces with tech giants to bring about real change, like our partnership with Apple to transform the B2E enterprise for the world’s biggest companies in ways never before seen. With a network of studios spanning 46 countries in the world’s most important digital markets, we’re delivering Digital everywhere from New York and London to Reykjavik and Hong Kong. We’re helping clients bring their greatest ambitions to life, and at Web Summit we will share our knowledge and insights with trailblazers from around the globe.

Workshops and panels

We’re hosting two workshops at Web Summit and participating on a panel – there’s something for everyone.

A new frontier: Designing new realities in AR and VR (workshop)
Nov. 9, 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 a.m. (post-workshop networking 12:30 - 1 p.m.)
With Nelson Kunkel, National Creative Director, Deloitte Digital, Deloitte Consulting LLP

As flat interfaces disappear and are replaced by new modes of interaction, the role of design moves from an understanding of visual objects to mastering the art of voice, sound, emotion and intent. This session will explore the opportunities of this new reality and our challenge to design for the human condition. We will explore leading examples and trends, discuss the impact to traditional models, and share how Deloitte Digital is preparing businesses and brands for what’s next.
