  • While looking for new ideas and concepts for our annual Innovation Days, the trend-based approach by ITONICS convinced us. During a 3-day event with several workshop sessions more than 300 international colleagues analyzed selected trends and future technologies, identified areas for innovation and growth and created over 20 product and service concepts. These results are essential for our future business. ITONICS has done a great job in preparing, facilitating and processing this fantastic event!

  • The topic of our annual Merchant Conference in 2015 was "Innovation." ITONICS was our partner and facilitator for three days of intensive workshop sessions, speeches and presentations. Everything from the preparation of the event and moderation (scouting and visualization of inspirations, trends, technologies and personas, agenda setting, templates etc.) to the follow-up and documentation. The more than 140 participants were enthusiastic! About 50 specific products, services and business models have emerged in the teams. A great success!
