This year NFL football fans were able to enjoy a new AR activation on-site in Miami, the host city of Super Bowl LIV. Utilizing the Unity platform, Bose created a beacon-based fan experience as part of the 10-day celebration leading up to the game, in partnership with the NFL and Trigger Digital. Fans were asked to don a pair of Bose headphones and approach a set of “players’ lockers”. Activated by a beacon, the lockers came to life with an audio experience offering content related to the relevant NFL player. For example, the fan may have heard a previously conducted interview between the player and a reporter. In this presentation, Michael Ludden, Global Head of Enablement & Principal AR Advocate at Bose, Tony Parisi, Head of AR/VR Ad Innovation at Unity Technologies and Jason Yim CEO at Trigger Digital will explain how this activation was developed and why an exclusively audio-first approach to augmented reality with tailored audio content can be a new way of engaging consumers that is often overlooked. The speakers will demonstrate what is possible with audio AR, including how it can provide a sense of motion and direction.
Having worked with global and national brands like AT&T, Simon Malls, Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and Samsung, Niantic's sponsorship platform has been evolving to a new form of AR advertising that is non-intrusive, organic, and engaging. Gaming is the new way to reach the so-called "unreachable" demographic, those who can no longer be engaged with traditional forms of advertising. With the gaming narrative and experience in mind, we will walk through how location-based AR ads can drive foot traffic to brick-and-mortar stores, create locational context for digital brands, and provide highly contextual and timely moments of engagement with customers. Pulling from real world results, we will share case studies on what works in location-based AR gaming and how brands can leverage this new form of advertising.
