Design Thinking workshops

Thinking about and designing packaging from a perspective of new consumer practices and uses.
• These “round tables” are an opportunity to discuss and brainstorm various topics
• 2 sessions per day (10am and 2pm), each with its own theme:
Packaging and added value: adding value to a product through presentation (examples from the perfume industry, technologies, etc.)
Packaging and new distribution systems (Drive, internet, etc.)
