Trade fair stalls
There are 12 interactive stalls with charismatic hosts in the centre of the exposition. We created the script, found stories and authentic goods, footed scenes and elaborated the interactive mechanics. This allowed visitors to communicate with the heroes and find out more about the goods via virtual counters.

unique goods
Can you imagine a fair without fortune tellers and buffoons? Peddlers, gypsies, touts and buffoons entertained guests via holographic projection on a net screen, hidden in decorations.

Sleigh ride
We elaborated a virtual walking track and complemented it with real sleighes. A big projector screen made it feel like a real sleigh ride.
An animated photo from a virtual walk is a souvenir from the exhibition. We complemented the sleigh with a chroma key in the photozone. Guests saw a real-time transformation in the Christmas scene, and a video was sent to the email. Short video suits for publication in social networks.
