İstinyePark İzmir Created Magical Moments through Virtual Reality

Throughout the festive season, İstinyePark İzmir provided a unique experience for visitors as part of the New Year’s celebrations. The highlight of the mall’s festivities was the integration of virtual reality throughout the entire space.

İstinyePark equipped its decorations with QR codes so that visitors could scan them with their phones and find themselves in a three-dimensional world of flying deer and Nutcrackers. This innovative technology creates an immersive experience, blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. Furthermore, the technology was in connection with a game, where the local retailers also took part. Visitors could collect points and earn vouchers by scanning and playing integrated games on their smartphones – this concept was very successful with over 2500 people participating in it. İstinyePark İzmir has therefore not only managed to integrate new concepts like AR but has combined innovation with the trend of gamification. This encourages visitors to participate in initiatives like these and turn their visit to the mall into a memorable experience.

Regarding design, the mall has gone above and beyond to create a captivating new year concept that left visitors in awe. Using the temperature of the red color and the elegance of gold, the combination of these elements transported visitors into a world of wonder and delight.
