This is the largest annual gathering of service design professionals, providing a unique opportunity to engage and contribute to the evolving field on a global level. Last year´s autumn, over 650 global thought leaders and practitioners across Hospitality, Insurance, Retail, Telco, Finance, IT and Health Care from 40+ countries, gathered for the 7th Annual Service Design Global Conference in Stockholm to share the latest thinking, trends and best practices to empower change through Service Design.
The conference will be held in New York City, United States – a cosmopolitan city with excellent flight connections and a world-class transport infrastructure – “The Big Apple” is a major world capital and a world leader in finance, the arts, and communications. With a population of more than 8 million people, New York City is one of the largest cities in the world and a melting pot with a rich culture and history. Thanks to the city’s diversity and vibrant intellectual life, it is the cultural capital of the United States. Modern venues, great accommodation, spectacular scenery and many great social activities are other reasons why New York is the perfect choice for our international conference.
Parsons has been a pioneer in art and design education since its inception, spearheading new movements and teaching methods that have propelled artists and designers creatively and politically. The New School was founded in New York City nearly a century ago as an institution dedicated to intellectual and artistic freedom. Today it is a leading urban university offering some of the nation’s most well respected degree, certificate, and continuing education programs in art and design, social sciences, liberal arts, management and public policy, and performing arts. The tradition of active learning begun in 1919 by John Dewey and other founders of The New School is reflected in programs that promote academic excellence, technical mastery, innovation, and engaged world citizenship.
