Free webinar: AkzoNobel and Tessella discuss engaging consumers with mobile apps and augmented reality

Listen to Stewart Longhurst from AkzoNobel’s Global Digital Marketing describe AkzoNobel’s use of Augmented Reality and David Hughes, key Project Manager at Tessella describe the development of the app

OXFORD, UK | BOSTON, US | 17th June 2014 | AkzoNobel, parent company of some of the world’s best known paint brands, and Tessella, an international analytics, software services and consulting company, are hosting a free online webinar for all consumer industry experts.

Companies that engage with consumers directly through digital channels will have the best advantage for creating new growth.

Making this move requires innovative thinking about consumer behaviour and the ability to push the capabilities of existing digital platforms.

In spring 2014, AkzoNobel was delighted to announce the release of AkzoNobel’s new Visualizer App for iOS and Android. Visualizer uses cutting-edge augmented reality technology to let people virtually paint their walls and see it live, inspiring and enabling the confident use of colour on walls.

In this webinar, Stewart Longhurst from AkzoNobel’s Global Digital Marketing will discuss the background to the Visualizer, and AkzoNobel’s desire to be at the forefront of engaging consumers using Augmented Reality. David Hughes, Project Manager at Tessella, will describe Tessella’s role in the development and roll out of the app, and in marrying advanced technical components and design concepts into an engaging consumer experience.
