BRIEF

How might we help people explore the city and enjoy the experience?

UNDERSTANDING THE USER
WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?

Language gap is a hindrance

The travelers feel that there are not enough English speakers in Paris, and this makes cultural exchange hard.

Prefer app and personalization

Today’s traveler is well connected and savvy, and prefers digital services and apps. Over 70% of U.S. travelers always carry their smartphones when traveling.

Curious about local culture

The travelers are very curious about the Parisian culture and heritage, and seek to experience the local cuisine and lifestyle.

Young and independent

About 96% of 25–30 year old travelers are independent. They’re also very well-informed and aware.
