Next is the kitchen, where participants will learn about IKEA’s relationship with consumers around the world. This section includes interviews with IKEA customers from various countries, as well as an interactive Brand Sentiment Matrix. Later on in the bedroom, students have a more intimate view of IKEA’s relationship with the Spanish consumer market. Here students can see relevant statistics and data of IKEA Ibérica both from public sources and exclusively from IKEA Ibérica themselves. Some of the most valuable material in this case can be found here, with exclusive interviews from IKEA Ibérica’s Marketing Director as well as their publicity agency McCann.
