Experiential Addition

Retail brands are introducing new and engaging experiences amid COVID-19

Trend - Still betting on the experience economy, brands are launching retail initiatives that are designed to capture consumer attention. These activations are created with COVID-19 safety and hygiene guidelines in mind and while some are powered by technology, others draw inspiration from adjacent industries.

Insight - Much like in the pre-pandemic environment, contemporary consumers—especially Millennials and Gen Z—are prioritizing tangible experiences over concrete products. Since COVID-19 guidelines have restricted many socially, individuals are increasingly eager to be engaged in substantial ways but are emphasizing the need for safety and hygiene protocols in order to feel comfortable. When these needs are met, consumers are able to enjoy various activities with peace of mind.
Workshop Question - Conceptualize an experience that will fit into the COVID-19 climate.
