Stay fit for the future

At the Service Design Days 2016, we focused on how to ‘Stay fit for the future’. Nowadays, more than ever, customers demand full-service brands with seamless service experience. As a result, organisations must adapt to fit into their customers’ lives. Full transparency and flawless fulfilment processes, both offline and online, are a necessity to stay competitive and stay in business.

To adapt to this new reality, organisations have to become fit for the future by innovating continuously. A challenging task, which asks for an agile, creative and pro-active thinking culture, with 100% focus on the customer.

The Service Design Days 2016 offered 8 interactive masterclasses and 12 future-focused keynotes. Across two days more than 250 enthusiastic attendees - strategic thinkers and doers - from over 15 different countries throughout the world shared their experiences with each other.

We even became a trending topic on Twitter during the event. Over 90% of the audience rated the 2016 event as good or excellent.
