Ghent Service Jam
29-31 March 2019
The Ghent Service Jam is part of the Global Service
Jam. This is an annual worldwide event organised by service design
enthusiasts. It’s all about creative problem solving and co-creating new
service prototypes in just 48 hours.
Can I attend just one day of the jam?
Sadly, it’s not possible to attend for just one day. We work in
teams to ideate, research, prototype and test the ideas. It’s all
about team effort. We understand if you arrive a bit late or leave a
bit earlier, but please let us know in advance. If you can’t make it
for the whole weekend, but really want to get a taste of the jam,
you are always welcome to attend the final presentations on Sunday
Can I stay over at the venue?
We don’t provide a place to sleep. But there are a lots of hotels,
B&B’s, airBnb’s or hostels in the city centre. If you have
trouble finding one, we’re happy to help you.
Are we going to work on projects that we bring to market
If you think you can, we encourage that of course! However, it is
most important that you take the opportunity to try out and learn
from each other.
I have a challenge related to my job that I would like to
work on, can I come in and work on that?
We’d rather that you didn’t. We want you all to get inspired from
each other and work on ideas based on insights from fieldwork.
However, this might be the opportunity to meet creative and
interesting partners in solving your big work problem.
