The action-packed day was full to the brim with a diverse selection of workshops and best-practice talks designed to help each and every one of our customers make the most of the Fredhopper Discovery Platform.
Knowledge sharing sessions and keynote talks from some of our industry partners and experts also helped to prepare customers for the future challenges and trends emerging in the retail space. Discover highlights of the day below.
Attraqt's 2019 Customer Conference was an action-packed day full of best-practice talks and insights, featuring over 200 customers from our community of leading retailers.
Walter Hottinga, the CEO of FYAYC, one of Attraqt's partners presented some of the latest Augmented Reality technology from their innovation lab, which is set to redefine the way that customers engage with onsite products. Walter demonstrated how this technology is able to help consumers visualise products in their own real-world environments. The technology allows shoppers to see products ‘in situ,’ - for example, allowing them to try on a pair of trainers digitally, or seeing what a new sofa would look like in their living room before they decide to purchase.
