As part of the ISES Talks series, the event was themed around the fictional Institute of Sensory Exploration Studies, created by Reuben Feels, an immersive theatre and trans-media storytelling company.

Guests enjoyed a group therapy session with one of the institute’s doctors, followed by an introduction into sensory deprivation, which involved delegates wearing blindfolds and headphones.

Reuben Feels has previously worked with Sony Music and Symantec.

Jane Hague, ISES UK president and head of corporate account development at Excel London, said: "More than ever, event organisers are integrating sensory experiences to deliver meaningful event experiences. Reuben Feels is a great example of how immersive theatre set in an ambient environment can be successfully integrated in to a networking and education format to create a unique and memorable event."
