These services will include creative R&D connecting contexts and technologies including Events, Sports, Gaming, Installations, Retail, New Products, Proposition Design, New Realities (AR, VR, MR), Data Visualisation, AI, Mobile, IoT and Rapid Prototyping.

Moreover, the Labs will be fully integrated with each other and dentsu’s offices, to expand on the network’s innovation offer.
