You now have an opportunity to visit and meet with Airbnb as the latest company confirmed to meet with us on FIPP and VDZ’s 5th Digital Innovators’ Tour to Seattle and San Francisco from 12-17 November. Other confirmed meetings include companies ranging from Algorithmia to Twitch, from Facebook to Slack, and from Microsoft to Google and more.
With User Experience a top priority for businesses like Airbnb, we will meet with Madeline Moore, Experience Designer, at Airbnb’s HQ in San Francisco. The relevance here is that UX-thinking extends not only to the website, but also other areas where the company has, or can establish, touch points with its consumers and prospective consumers. This includes Airbnb’s magazine, recently launched in collaboration with Hearst – a reverse digital-to-print model that is becoming something of a trend among digital companies.
In this meeting you will find out more about how Airbnb thinks about UX – online, offline and in print, and, crucially, how they think about the value each touch point brings.
To find out more about Tour arrangements, cost and/or how to register, get in touch with Jennifer Panse (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will gladly help out.
