Monika Bielskyte Joins AVIXA TIDE

Artist and designer Monika Bielskyte will join AVIXA’s TIDE conference at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018 in Amsterdam as the closing keynote speaker on 5 February 2017.

The day before the ISE show floor opens, Bielskyte will join a roster of influential innovators, designers, and marketers at Hotel Okura Amsterdam to explore the creative forces shaping the AV industry.

Bielskyte creates future-world prototypes for the entertainment industry, technology companies, and cities. A large part of her time is devoted to research and strategy in the immersive media technology space (augmented, mixed, and virtual reality). Her clients include Hollywood production companies Ridley Scott Associates, Universal, and Dreamworks; technology giants CERN, Intel, and Google; design companies Rick Owens and Aston Martin; and the United Arab Emirates government.

Also joining the TIDE conference is Ben Moorsom, President and Chief Creative Officer of Debut Group, a marketing agency focused on experiential training, event production and communications consulting. Moorsom is transforming the way companies communicate by drawing upon research in the fields of neuroscience and human psychology.

Kevin Jackson will host the day, ensuring a fast-paced and interactive experience for TIDE attendees. In roles with some of the world’s most-respected marketing services groups and live-event agencies, Jackson has worked with a wide range of clients from Adidas to Zumba.

“Corporate growth starts with personal growth — to be constantly learning and seeing the world through new eyes, to network with stimulating people, to make new connections, to be inspired by new thinking, and to allow the energy created to move you into new channels,” said Jackson. “This is what TIDE offers — design thinking, moving people to think, and then to act. At its heart, design thinking is applied creativity. Designers — indeed all of us in the live-experience industry — are creative problem-solvers, and to have the best and the brightest on stage in Amsterdam is an opportunity that no one should pass up.” /
