When we hear the word interactive, it’s easy to immediately think about technology, or the way we interface with it. But interactivity begins with humans, and is in fact an extension of the gestures, spontaneity and engagement we use to gather an understanding of the world around us.
Historically, buildings have been pretty set in stone. Architectural flexibility was the exception not the norm. Today, however, we live in a remarkable moment—a time when our spaces can shift with the flick of a hand across a keyboard. We can write an algorithm that turns a doorstep into a portal and build a canvas that paints (and even serenades) itself.
When we hear the word interactive, it’s easy to immediately think about technology or the way we interface with it. But interactivity begins with humans and is in fact an extension of the gestures, spontaneity, and engagement we use to gather an understanding of the world around us.

TIDE Generator Host Kirsten Nelson discusses how music and sound are reframing this moment in hospitality with guests Pablo Henderson, Vice President of Marketing for Equinox Hotels and Anida Gurlit, Creative Director of Music Design for Mood Media.
Without the usual commute or many plans for travel, we can get stuck in our own limited playlist of music and atmosphere. On some level, more than just a change of scenery, we’re craving new sounds. Accepting the new risks associated with heading out into the world and staying in a hotel, what do we want to hear? How are hotels embracing this opportunity to assert themselves once again as cultural intersections that provide comfort, escape, and a new perspective on the world around us?

Creating a sense of comfort is core to hospitality and much of that comfort comes with a sense that health and safety are top considerations throughout all hotel operations. In addition to the more clinical needs, guests can be put more at ease through careful cultivation of the atmospheric elements of a space, including music, lighting, decor, and aroma.
In the meetings and conferences sector of hospitality, virtual meetings are reaching a new phase of development, with platforms designed to help in the transition back to in-person events.

One of the reasons we will return to public spaces is the search for a fuller sense of engagement. Remote life has us confined to separate and disembodied existences, communicating with each other primarily through the limited rectangles of video screens, in public spaces even the currents of air in outdoor spaces might provide new narrative information.
As museums begin to reopen at limited capacity with safety protocols in place, most of the usual ways of connecting are eliminated, and we’re getting a chance to see what can move people on a sensory level, even with these limitations in place.

For years flexible learning spaces have undergone rapid evolutions to accommodate new styles of learning. AV technology is at the center of these changes both as the impetus to create more interactive classroom experiences and as a reflection of the tools and knowledge sources central to learning.
The events and experiential marketing industries have arrived at a new phase in this dramatic and painful pause on in-person gatherings.

And how can we use the new technologies that we’re just beginning to change events to create more memorable connections when people do gather in person again? TIDE Generator Host Kirsten Nelson talks with Adekambi Laleye, Key Accounts with klik and Safeteams and David Title, Partner with Bravo Media, to talk about new and evolving uses of technology for virtual and in-person events.
