IHG – New Room for Crowne Plaza
From 2011 to 2013 we led the development of a series of innovation platforms for IHG – covering everything from new room designs and check-in approaches through to collaborative business models and reinvented public spaces. The first of the outcomes from this has now gone live – a new room for Crowne Plaza focused on the business traveller. Developed in partnership with designers Pearson Lloyd, key members of the Growth Agenda team and external researchers, this is launching across the US in 2015.

This interactive event used recent global insight and cross-sector thinking as the foundations to build a shared vision for a novel urban hotel experience. The workshop showed how companies are using foresight and emerging trends to help them identify, define and share compelling visions for future guest and customer experiences
