LATITUDE CONFERENCE SERIES


LATITUDE CONFERENCE SERIES

WHY ENGAGE WITH THIS CONFERENCE?

The world is changing at pace.

Traditional resources are running out. The negative impact of pollution on lifestyle and health is clear to all. Users are taking a different view of ownership and the value of goods.

Innovative companies see the limits of a linear business model and are leading the way with a model that meets the changing environment – the circular economy.


This year’s conference and workshop series focuses on the practical application of circular economy principles and disruptive design.

It provides a platform for you or your organisation to be part of something positive and global.

WORKSHOP BRIEF OVERVIEW

An exclusive workshop you will rarely get the chance to attend.

Packaging
“Wrap it!”
Packaging. The most obvious form of waste to the general public. A hassle to deal with. A slight on brands.
OR
An obvious form of raw materials, convenient and fun to engage with, delivering positive brand messages.
Attend this workshop to open your eyes to the opportunities that already exist.
Run in conjunction with KAPPA and Packnet

Product Assessment
“Assess it!”
If you can’t measure it, assessing success or otherwise is difficult. Claiming success is even harder.
Attend this workshop for insights into how you can safeguard your brand and tell your story with confidence.
Run in conjunction with ERM Korea

November 2nd (Thu)

Transport
“Move it!”
Mobile offices, driverless vehicles, car sharing and the seemingly unstoppable growth of EVs. Exciting things are happening in the transport sector.

With support from ChaeVi
