Opening Keynote: Lauren Anderson, Collaborative Lab
Followed by an Interactive Panel Dabate: with founders and executive leaders from the hotest collaborative services in the UK, including Zipcar, Love Home Swap, Liftshare and Streetbank.
This session will cover Collaborative Consumption / The Sharing Economy / Pay as you Live / Peer-2-Peer Marketplaces.
During this session will explore and speak with leading companies disrupting traditional business models with new and innovative ways to consume products and services. We will explore how these new marketplaces, which often have deep social connections, work and why this is one of the fastest growing segments online. Some of the question we will ask include: Why are people increasing taking up these kinds of services? Is it driven by cost savings? Is it move about lifestyle, community and/or green issues? Have social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc) and mobile apps been key enablers to helping these services scale?
