This panel features both the client and the agency that created a compelling AR activation leveraging story-telling, serialized content, and both in-person and virtual events to connect with developers.
This innovative campaign used web-based AR to help drive engagement at a virtual event, offering up a gamified and educational interactive experience featuring 'Chuck' - a sarcastic and snarky block character that led the user through the experience. The campaign further evolved by engaging in-person, conference attendees with booth-activated AR experiences that further told Chuck's story.

Fans don’t just want to watch the game - they want to be a part of the experience. To engage their attention, fans demand a personalized, emotional experience, with increasing pressure to show innovation. Tech enabled experiences provide brands an opportunity to gain insights on their fans (their needs, motivations, etc.), and become more influential in their purchasing decisions.
Whether digital platforms, AR, VR, AI, holograms, or NFTs, the gamification of the fan experience is an example of the way teams and brands can optimize consumer interactions to increase sales, analyze customer engagement, and measure partnerships. From pre-event, to on-site, to at-home, and post game experiences, our fireside chat will explore how brands can leverage XR to connect with consumers, build fanbases, and influence opinion.
