TORONTO, O.N, Canada – June 28, 2022 - Nextech AR Solutions Corp. (“Nextech” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29), a Metaverse Company and leading provider of augmented reality (“AR”) experience technologies and services is pleased to announce the signing of multiple deals in the events industry by the Map D division of Nextech AR for their self-serve event management software solution. The Map D software platform is experiencing an accelerating rate of growth, up 70% when compared to the first 6 months of 2021, and continues to expand rapidly with sales in new categories, combining integrations with Nextech’s Web3.0 technologies. The integration of these Web3.0 technologies is a game changer for the events industry and has led to a transformation of the Map D platform, accelerating its future revenue growth.
Nextech AR CEO Evan Gappelberg commented, “The Map D platform is transforming and shifting toward Web3.0 and seeing accelerating revenue growth with the integration of Nextech AR’s metaverse suite. By integrating Map D with ARitize Maps, ARitize 3D, and ARitize Holograms, we are able to maximize the potential revenue with each of our clients and offer immersive experiences that transform industries, including real estate, museums, sporting venues and more. He continues, “the Map D platform continues to grow, release new features, sign new clients, and generate accelerating revenue. Our aim is to upsell and cross sell Map D’s existing and new blue-chip clients by offering full end-to-end solutions, which provide engaging and immersive experiences that their customers want. The RC Show use case can be replicated for any event, tradeshow, convention or exhibitor hall across any industry, and incorporate 3D product visualizations, human holograms, augmented reality wayfinding, and more to wow guests and increase conversions, brand awareness, and engagement...which continues to drive strong revenue growth.”
The Company is also testing and seeing early success with a massive breakthrough in scaling the creation of spatial maps for events, and especially augmented reality (AR) wayfinding by using Map D technology for its ARitize Maps product. This technology will allow event show organizers to sell AR wayfinding to exhibitors as well as sponsorship opportunities to sponsors creating yet another source of revenue for Nextech.
Map D has fully embraced Nextech AR’s groundbreaking technologies, ARitize Maps, ARitize 3D and ARitize Holograms, providing the potential to take its events and associations clients into the metaverse with the Company’s spatial mapping, 3D modeling and hologram technology.
The new contracts signed by Map D represent accelerating growth opportunities for Nextech with the potential for spatial mapping, 3D models, holograms and more as they provide the Company dozens of additional clients for upsell and cross-sell opportunities. The ARitize Maps product has an unlimited number of use cases for augmenting physical spaces in the Metaverse, including events, conventions, trade shows, real estate, rental properties, sporting events, and more. With value propositions spanning multiple industries and use cases, this app opens Nextech’s 3D/AR technology solutions to new markets and provides a seamless integration with the events and association clients of Map D. For example, Apartment Associations can use Nextech’s ARitize Map’s wayfinding spatial mapping; Home Builders can show a new home completely in the metaverse in Web 3.0, showcasing not just the home itself, but 3D assets such as furniture and home appliances. The use cases are endless.
