This week at 360i’s New York headquarters, we hosted a session as part of the Fast Company Innovation Festival in partnership with Unity, and our client Fossil. The annual Fast Company Innovation Festival brings together thousands of forward-thinking creators, makers, inventors, entrepreneurs, and emerging leaders from across the country and around the globe who are embracing change, blazing new trails, and moving our world forward.
The panel included 360i’s CMO Doug Rozen, Fossil’s Global Marketing Lead Charlotte Roach, and Unity’s Global Head of VR/AR Brand Solutions Tony Parisi. The group discussed the opportunity that Augmented Reality (AR) offers brand marketers, including creative, interactive ad units.
Charlotte showcased a new example that Unity and 360i created for the 2018 Fall Fossil campaign, which allows users to virtually try-on and purchase different watch styles across social platforms. Fossil believes that experiential marketing is truly bringing an impact back to impressions, and Charlotte noted, “this isn’t a quick stunt, this AR unit is a long term investment.” Following the conversation, Unity invited audience members to experience their latest AR technology first-hand on iPads and Smartphones.
