We are thrilled to be attending RetailX in-person and speaking with our wonderful client, Lizzy Ellingson, chief digital experience office, at David's Bridal. This is an event you won't want to miss and a session you'll want to add to your calendar.
How to create digital experiences that rival in-store
What if you could create digital experiences that are as good as in-store experiences? In this webinar, we'll demonstrate how today’s technology can help you create eCommerce experiences that are BETTER than in-store experiences. We’ll discuss the acceleration of augmented reality (AR) in eCommerce in 2020 and how AR technology has advanced beyond only working with apps that need to be downloaded to let you see products from all sides in your home. We’re also going to explore how livestream shopping (through video), 3D video, and enhanced chat can offer similar consumer benefits as shopping in-store, ultimately improving eCommerce conversion.

Augmented Reality: Like Real Reality, but Better (for Retailers)
Ecommerce took a giant leap forward in 2020, and there is no going back. As retailers seek new ways to engage shoppers outside the confines of the physical store, augmented reality (AR) has quickly risen to the forefront. Effective use of AR can help shoppers get a look “under the hood” of items they’re interested in buying, providing both the capability to zoom in, spin, and look at the product from every angle.
