Case Highlights

  1. Introducing Motion Tracking Footballer and Virtual Try On Jersey.
  2. Blazing fan enthusiasm with immersive XR experiences.
  3. Enhancing event engagement and gathering precise consumer data.

Client Background

Our client, a marketing agency of UAE, organizes various events. Their project was to create an activation campaign at the Global Village regarding the UAE Pro League. This time, they wanted to increase user engagement and their marketing strategy with data collection at the event. The event lasted for 2 days.

Problems Presented

Our clients presented us with numerous problems regarding the activation campaign. We were given a short period of time to generate ideas for the activation campaign and provide viable solutions to fix it. Here are the problems that our clients wanted to solve: 

  • Fan Engagement: The client faced significant challenges with low engagement at their event booths. Attendees were not sufficiently captivated by their offerings, leading to weak/scattered participation. Increasing engagement was their primary focus.

  • Data Collection Issue: The client struggled to gain insights into attendee behavior and preferences without any base for data collection. This hindered their ability to tailor marketing strategies effectively and optimize the event experience.

  • Friendly Competition: Our client found it difficult to create friendly competition among visitors at their events. Our AR/VR solution aimed to address this challenge by providing engaging, interactive experiences that encouraged participation and competition in a fun and immersive way.

  • Social Media Buzz: Our client’s wanted to increase the event’s social media engagement which would create awareness. But as there was no interactive material to look forward to, social media had no engagement.

Understanding the client’s desire, we engineered immersive solutions that addressed their specific pain points. We presented various solutions to our clients and they selected 2 immersive activities from many.

3. Data Collection

As a primary task was to collect data for our clients, we gathered information from each solution as they participated.  

Motion Tracking Footballer: While selecting their favorite team, they submitted their Name, Email, Age and Favorite Team. They can then play with the virtual footballer who comes up with the jersey of the participant’s favorite team. We used this information to create the leaderboard in the game as well as store it for remarketing purposes. 

Virtual Try-on Jersey: After trying on the virtual jersey, participants can capture themselves in our photo booth. A QR-code is generated to take participants to a form where they can input their information (Name & Email) as well as download the picture. The image is also sent to the participant via email.


As the final whistle blew, the scoreboard painted a picture of resounding success. Here is a glimpse of the aftermath we gathered in 2 days:-
