The second day of the workshop we will start with the keynote from Erson Halili – project planner from FrostBit Software Lab Currently. He is engaged with several national and international projects that aim to utilize extended reality (VR/AR) solutions in tourism, healthcare, business, forestry, cultural heritage, etc. Erson expertise unfolds where psychology and media connect. He is an advocate of utilizing design thinking and service design methods to create meaningful and user-centred digital experiences.

As the tourism industry was heavily disrupted by the pandemic, only a few tourism companies managed to shift to online services. This was mainly due to the lack of know-how about the digital tools and how to integrate them into their businesses.

While everyone is racing to provide digital services, it is essential to understand the right technology that adds value to your company. In addition, we often think that technology is the ultimate solution, while we neglect the importance of deep customer understanding, co-design and design thinking. After all, technology is an essential part of creating the customer experience; however, it should not replace traditional tourism experiences but rather enhance them. 

Erson’s presentation will feature a few concrete use-cases that he and his colleagues have worked on recently at FrostBit Software Lab. Moreover, the keynote will be a walk-through of the key processes in the digital experience design and development process illustrated with a demonstration live on stage. 

We are so eager to see you soon!
