9:30am to 10:30am
If the early years of internet businesses was a triumph of technology, the next ones will be one defined by design and user experience. Users will demand more from their online experience, one which is as much designed around personal preference as technical expediency. Well designed applications and services that can meet the needs of users expecting seamless interactions across technology platforms will be the winners. In London's Tech City, small tech, design, creative and product companies are working together to meet the challenges of the connected consumer. This session is sponsored by UKTI.
