Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) is a yearly mecca for those at the intersection of technology, inclusion, and talent. It’s the stage where innovations in software development, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence are debuted. In this atmosphere brimming with futuristic visions, Wells Fargo and 3D Exhibits opted for a delightful detour into the past. Partnering with us at Interactive Entertainment Group, they chose a timeless arcade game to entice, engage, and elevate.
Capturing Hearts with Nostalgia
Wells Fargo’s booth didn’t rely on the bells and whistles that dotted the GHC 23 landscape. No, it went straight for the heart, tapping into a nostalgic vein many didn’t even realize they missed. Dance Dance Revolution, a game that hearkens back to simpler times of arcade fun, became the draw that pulled attendees into the Wells Fargo experience.
Stand Out by Going Back
Amidst a sea of virtual reality and augmented reality gadgets, Wells Fargo’s booth was a breath of fresh air—a time capsule, if you will. The iconic game wasn’t just an attention-grabber; it became a conversation starter, setting the stage for meaningful interactions with Wells Fargo representatives. While attendees enjoyed the foot-tapping, heart-pumping gameplay, they also got to discover the brand’s latest banking and tech solutions.
The Seamless Fusion by 3D Exhibits
Credit must also be given to 3D Exhibits, whose booth design offered a seamless blend of past and present. They took a game known for its colorful aesthetic and integrated it tastefully into Wells Fargo’s professional arena, demonstrating that simplicity and nostalgia could coexist with a brand’s modern image.
