Title of the presentation

Introducing browser-based Augmented Reality Ads (WebAR ads)

About the presentation

In early 2019, LucidWeb developed its first "mobile WebAR" experience for the Fortune500 company Netapp. Today, LucidWeb also sees a growing interest in WebAR among local agencies in Belgium, as they wish to understand the possibilities the tech offers for advertisers. The potential of WebAR is unmistakably enormous: A recent study by Artillry Intelligence predicts that by 2023 the revenue from 'mobile AR' will reach $ 21billion and 'AR ads' up to $ 8.8 billion. The same research confirms that WebAR experiences can reach nearly twice as many smartphones compared to ‘native’ AR apps, with a global market of almost 3 billion mobile phones.
In this session, LucidWeb’s Founder & CEO will be showcasing the company’s latest mobile WebAR experiences that are just a tap of a link away.
