Many brands have tested XR in its virtual (VR) and augmented (AR) reality forms in retail and marketing over the past 5 years, surfing the hype wave that XR would revolutionize the way products are sold and brands communicate. Most of those initiatives were abandoned again after its pilot projects not seeing much immediate ROI generated. Show more…

Since then, the hardware has been maturing and the penetration of AR-enabled devices like phones and tablets is soaring. Pandemics pushed many new customers to shop online. VR headsets numbers are also growing steadily, although mostly thanks to gaming. 

So is there a viable business case to deploy these technologies in retail and marketing already today? And what will happen when today’s VR gamers will mature and start using their headsets for shopping or the first mass-market AR glasses will hit the stores?

Let’s explore together what is possible already now and what can you expect in the near future.

Why should I watch the episode?

The episode will provide guidance on employing XR mainly in 3 retail and marketing areas:

  1. Virtual showroom – enhancing customer experience at home
  2. In-store experiences – using AR and VR in physical stores for brand activation
  3. Virtual retail space staging – designing and testing new retail space in VR, product placement, etc.

We’ll also look more into the future and touch upon topics like the cross section of blockchain and VR, full VR shopping experiences and more.

What will be my take-home value?

  1. To understand how XR can be used in retail, marketing and for your brand experience
  2. Practical use cases and inspiration 
  3. Continue working with our VR scorecard assessing where’s your organization at
  4. An urge to see next Futurescope episodes
