Multisensory customer experience

ITHQ

ExperiSens is an applied research centre whose mission is to develop a culture of excellence in customer experience in the hospitality industry as well as in other industries by assisting organizations in the development of innovative concepts, products and services that contribute to the growth of their prosperity.

As a centre of excellence in education specializing in tourism, hospitality and restoration, the Institut de tourisme et d'hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ) relies on a distinctive pedagogical approach, applied research activities and sustained collaboration with the industry. Beyond the role of intuition in customer experience, hospitality, stimulation of the five senses, emotions felt and their effects on consumer perception and behaviour, ExperiSens uses science and technology to understand and explain how to optimize hospitality.
