Day One @ 13:40

Digital Design Lab, WonderFLY (Crowdfunding), and Avatars through the lens of digital marketing

13:40-14:10: Presentation
All Nippon Airways (ANA) is reimagining what an airline can be by establishing a Digital Design Lab (DDL), a futuristic team looking at what might transform the future of the industry. DDL is working on two projects WonderFLY and Avatars. They will share with us some new (and crazy) ideas on what will change how airlines do digital marketing and beyond. 
  • WonderFLY: More than just a crowdfunding website. How does it provide a new digital model to drive customer engagement and loyalty for airlines?
  • Avatars: More than a digital experience. What do the geo-location data of people’s interaction provide a brand new insight for airline marketers? What else?
  • What will disrupt the future of air travel?
14:10-14:20: Q&A session
