A new way to collect needs was designed for the event, trying to involve attendees in the process and giving visibility to the project service: the unmet needs corner.
The corner was located in a central area, where the fluency of visitors was higher. When people got closed to the corner, they can touch the cards, pulling them out to read the content of each one. One person was always near the corner to explain the service and what we were collecting.
Most of people felt it was a really good idea and wanted to share their ideas with us.
