On the Lions Innovation stage, Nick Bailey will be partnered by WIRED UK Editor, David Rowan and they will discuss the impact of connected cities around the world and the impact this has on our industry in a session entitled “Future Society – will our industry lead or follow?”
Bailey and Rowan will look at how technology and innovation are driving fundamental change in our present and future societies. From the rise of the global mega-city, to the way we travel and work, to how we select (or disregard) services and brands: how will creative use of technology and a focus on ideas without limits impact our industry in the Brand Commerce era?
The pair will explore how innovations like smart architecture, urban food production and the re-imagining of retail and service business models are enabling incumbent businesses, innovation and creative companies and technology entrepreneurs to shape the future - making the super-urban, connected societies of the future not simply possible, but pleasant, healthy and inspiring places to live.
