Event description

Description

From its introduction nearly 10 years ago with the "Ikea Place"AR application, immersive technology in retail has been growing in popularity. Today, shedding its reliance on dedicated mobile applications, web-delivered 3D models of high-consideration products like cars, couches, and appliances, are becoming a valuable tool in the modern retail experience. Moreover, tools like ARKit and ARCore when paired with smart phones with depth cameras, mean that the majority of consumers are already equipped to participate in the new 3D commercial world.

This session of XR Dublin by Walmart Labs is exploring the potential for immersive technology in retail.

In addition to XR professionals, we invite retailers of every stripe to join us for this event as we explore questions like:

What are the current best-in-class applications supporting XR in retail?

What are the best-practices for employing 3D models on the web?

Is a dedicated mobile app required? If not, how do I offer 3D product models?

What is the difference between photogrammetry and 3D Modeling?

Does XR have an operational benefit for pre-visualizing marketing assets, product presentation, and collaborating with suppliers?


Thanks to our sponsor The Digital Hub for providing pizza at the event!

Presenters:


THE EXECUTIVE

Kellogg's Logo

We are pleased to invite Kellogg's to join us as a special guest for the evening. Instead of our typical Executive presenter from the XR industry, Kellogg's is going to be hearing pitches from two Irish companies who will present immersive technology solutions focusing on product, consumer engagement, or retail presence. Having engaged previously with Augmented Reality , the pitches will need to be original and engaging.
