Event description

Description

Due to COVID-19 outbreak, the Vancouver Service Jam 2020 is postponed until Aug 7-9th, where we will join many other locations who have chosen to postpone as well in 'take two' of this annual event.




We're hosting our 6th Annual Vancouver Service Jam! Part of the annual Global Jam events around the world.

48 HOURS TO SAVE THE WORLD

Join Jammers in up to 100 cities around the world to work simultaneously for only 48 hours (or less!) and prototype new services inspired by a secret global theme.

jam process

What is "the Jam"?
One special weekend, people interested in service and customer experience will meet at locations all over the globe. They will be designers, students, academics, business people, unemployed people, customers, mums, kids and grand-dads.


In a spirit of experimentation, innovation, co-operation and friendly competition, teams will have less than 48 hours to develop and prototype completely new services, products or initiatives inspired by a shared theme. At the end of the Jam, their collection of brand new insights and prototypes will be published to the world.

"Event was SO fun. Really neat to implement the process in such a short amount of time." - former Jammer
