Raven Sun Creative, the immersive entertainment design and IP development firm, was represented by Louis Alfieri at MAPIC 2019, who spoke in the Leisure Talks: Technology @ Play conference session.
Raven Sun Creative is pleased to announce that its Principal and Chief Creative Officer, Louis Alfieri, presented at a well-attended session during this year’s MAPIC event in Cannes, France. MAPIC is the international retail property event for key property players and cities to build the ultimate lifestyle and shopping destinations.
During this year’s event, the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) presented the Leisure Talks: Technology @ Play conference session, which took place on 14 November. The session was moderated by Klaus Paulsen Sommer of AdventureLAB and set out to explore the intersection of technology and play, and how they can enhance the customer retail leisure experience. As well as Alfieri, Jason Bruges of Jason Bruges Studio, Guillaume Chêne of QubicaAMF, Anders Eggert Jorgensen and Ulrik Hunskjaer of Arusio also spoke in the session.
Exploring technology and play
This was Alfieri’s second consecutive year speaking at MAPIC. Following his participation in 2018’s TEA session called Impact of New Retail and Leisure Experiences, this year he spoke on the interrelated roles of technology and play.
During the session, Alfieri shared insights into how technology and play can help to build brand success in retail spaces. “It’s a tremendous privilege and pleasure to speak alongside such a group of smart, talented industry professionals,” he says. “And it’s always a great experience being able to explore a topic like this one with an engaged audience. My thanks to Klaus and the TEA for inviting me back.”
