Virtual Reality

Tradeshows and expositions are the places where brands across all industries have the opportunity to make a name for themselves, bring in new consumers, gage an audience’s interest in potential products, and get further connected within the desired industry.

One of the biggest uses of virtual reality in VR marketing and brand activation is within the tradeshow and exposition arenas. Due to its eye-catching and immersive qualities, virtual reality is an excellent attraction for bringing in and engaging attendees.

When thinking about virtual reality most would not consider VR as a budget-friendly option for trade show and conference booth appearances but exploring the ability to rent out various virtual reality simulators cuts the cost down to a fraction. Being able to have attendees connect with a brand’s story and mission statement is a strong way to keep attendees engaged in the brand long after their visit to a conference or expo booth.

Storytelling has never been easier for brands with the use of virtual reality. Allowing guests to interact with a brand’s product, get an inside look into a brand’s story, or getting to see the product in action can all be done with a virtual reality headset.

Augmented Reality

Similarly to virtual reality, the key to making augmented reality work for a brand’s trade show or marketing event presence is finding a way to center guests and attendees in the middle of a story. Utilize augmented reality’s immersive and interactive nature to bring people to a booth and have attendees stay and interact with the technology seamlessly.
