Many recognize the power ofexperiences to inspire people and drive business growth.They’re investing in unique engagements at touchpoints wherethey interact with key audiences. The best of these brands wecall “experience brands”.Too many brands, however, still miss the mark. Andparadoxically, they fall short at exactly those moments ofthree-dimensional interaction between brands and peoplewhere they have the best opportunities to creative immersive,physical brand experiences. These include:• Tradeshow booths and exhibits• Retail stores and kiosks• Pop-up displays and temporary installations• Mobile exhibits and vehicles• Corporate environments and executive briefing centersBrands miss the mark for two reasons: they don’t realize theopportunity physical brand experiences present, and/or theyfail to design the experiences to optimize this opportunity.

Their time and attention is more precious than ever.So fundamentally, an effective 3-D brand experience must beworth people’s time. It should leverage the special ability ofphysical brand experiences to be immersive andmulti-sensory, to provide a place for personalized interactionand conversation. An effective 3-D brand experience mustbe more than a backdrop. It needs to be an active space forconversation and engagement versus passive scenery. And ofcourse, an effective 3-D brand experience needs to be part ofthe larger brand and marketing strategy, with defined metricsand outcomes.To achieve all these goals, experience designers should payheed to what we call the “three E’s” of 3-D brand experience.
