The gig economy, sometimes referred to as the sharing economy, allows people to benefit from the services offered to them via online platforms and/or to provide their own offerings to be purchased or rented from the online marketplace. Consumers benefit from the ease of use, affordable rates and access to peer reviews. From interchanging of flats to shared cars, from ‘crowdfunding’ to ‘coworking’, from microlending to P2P-finance.

This new economy represents a profound and important change in our world that impacts the whole international landscape. The fact that more and more people share their things – their car, house or even their electricity – whenever they do not use it themselves, or that people search first for used products before approaching a traditional market is changing the rules and expectations completely.

Come ready to engage in what these new rules are beginning to crystallize to be with human-centered design principles at the core that will impact the way that marketers, product teams and businesses do work in the future.

Field Nation is located on at 733 Marquette Ave S in Minneapolis in the Baker Center Building on the 8th floor.
