Virtual reality (VR) simulations provide an efficient, flexible, and reliable method for recreating the in-store shopping experience and measuring consumers' reactions to new marketing concepts at the point of purchase. Dr. Burke’s presentation will give an overview and demonstration of virtual shopping simulations, discuss the benefits and limitations of lab-based and online research tools, and outline the steps for creating an effective shopping simulation. He will share a case study conducted with General Mills (a cereal manufacturer) to illustrate how VR technologies can be applied in concept testing and computer-simulated test marketing. A few other VR applications will be discussed at the end of the talk.
