We live in an age where businesses need to look beyond the aesthetics of a product or the practicalities of a service. Where consumer engagement & loyalty count far more than features & benefits alone.

At PI Boston this November, Josh Giegel, VP Design & Analysis Engineering at Hyperloop, will join other technology pioneers to share how after Elon Musk released his vision of the futuristic transportation tube - the Hyperloop, his company were one of two organizations tasked with the design and analysis of the mechanical elements of the system.

André Borschberg, co-Founder, CEO and Pilot of Solar Impulse joins the high calibre speaker faculty to share the technical, human and operational challenges that they face amidst achieving the first solar-powered round the world flight; proving that pioneering spirit and innovation can change the world. Sam Aquillano, Executive Director of Design Museum Boston, will deliver a talk on how he and his team are disrupting the design industry with the ‘Nomadic Museum’. They aim to bring the power of design to everyone by transforming entire cities into design museums.

The central theme of the conference is the technologies that bring these feats of innovation into fruition. As such Bernard Charlès, President & CEO of technology provider Dassault Systèmes, discusses how the industry needs to change to best leverage consumer experience and translate this into tangible, business value.

“We live in an age where businesses need to look beyond the aesthetics of a product or the practicalities of a service, where consumer engagement and loyalty count far more than features and benefits alone, where consumers expect to interact with or even influence suppliers – not just be sold to. Shaping the right consumer experience requires not only the involvement of but also the collaboration between all roles within a company – from marketing and management to sales, engineering and manufacturing. Only by connecting all the dots between people, ideas and data can a business drive consumer loyalty, engagement and value.” Scott Berkey, Managing Director, North America, Dassault Systèmes
