Kinepolis: A story about innovation & customer centricity!

It's all about the customer at Kinepolis! Bjorn Van Reet & Eddy Duquenne welcomed us in "De Loft" to share their views on how to make a business like Kinepolis successful in this digital age and what it means to be a CIO & CEO.

It's been a wonderful year at Kinepolis Group; in October 2017 Bjorn Van Reet was crowned CIO of the Year by Datanews ànd Eddy Duquenne (CEO, Kinepolis Group) got his third consecutive nomination for the prestigious Manager of the Year award by Trends Magazine.

Of course it was a very fruitful year for Kinepolis as well. Acquisitions, innovations, transformation into a multimedia organisation, to name a few. We were anxious to learn from Bjorn & Eddy how – and also what, when, why – was at the basis of Kinepolis’ (and their own) successes.

During a very open hearted interview, Eddy & Bjorn answered tons of questions on very different subjects (e.g. their leadership styles, their vision on the future of Kinepolis, what they do to constantly improve customer experience etc.). And our participants learned a lot of impressive facts about the multimedia organisation. For example; Did you know that no human is involved in over 70% of the ticketsales? Ticketsales are Kinepolis' pride & joy and even that is something that they constantly re-evaluate and try to improve upon.
