Habegger shows the Visitor Center of the future

The term "experience" has become more modest in current circumstances, but all the more significant for it. The continuing need for experience requires companies to fundamentally rethink how they communicate their brand and messages. The trend: hybrid worlds of experience, higher reach, and a new dimension of interaction. To achieve this, Habegger relies on interdisciplinary innovation.

The relevance of visitor centers is greater than ever. People can meet, they experience new things, emotions are evoked, modern protection concepts are an automatic component. With their own world of experience, companies have the chance to present their products, history and values and to leave a lasting impression. That's why Habegger is dedicated to the Visitor Center of the future: physical, digital, virtual. Innovative, emotional, creative.

Promote hybrid experience

Visitor centers have always been a central place for exchange and an important point of identification for employees. According to Marion Schneider, Creative Director at Habegger, this has not changed in the current situation. "This exchange is still sought after, but it is now shifting more into the digital world. But it's not smaller than the real one, it's bigger." That brings with it many opportunities, he says. The magic formula is called: hybrid experience - virtual and physical on site. On the one hand, content is conveyed haptically on site. On the other hand, interested visitors can consume it online. This increases the reach many times over.

Interaction redefined

But the visitor center of the future is not only characterized by a hybrid concept, it also takes interaction to the next level. "Whereas in a physical visit people take a lot of time, are willing to dive deep and seek intensity, in the digital realm immediacy, efficiency and breadth in terms of information are required," says Schneider. "What's exciting is the combination of the two experiences, which complement each other perfectly while appealing to even more target groups." However, both variants can also exist on their own through modern concepts.

Interdisciplinary innovations

The question, however, is: don't people go to a visitor center precisely because they're looking for a sensory experience? "That's the challenge," Schneider says. "It's absolutely possible to bring a sensory experience into your own home." To continually optimize this sensory experience, all disciplines work closely together at Habegger. "In doing so, we relied on existing applications as well as new technologies," says Schneider. "Live communication is undergoing a digital evolution. High time to take the Visitor Center to a new level."
