8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Raises $1,580,000 In Management Led Round in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

CEO Evan Gappelberg Invests $857,000


New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 12, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech"), a rapidly growing technology and emerging growth company focused on bringing augmented reality ("AR") to the masses, is pleased to announce that it has raised $1,580,000 with an expected closing date of 7/15/19. The Company plans to use the net proceeds of the offering to hire additional sales people, pursue M&A opportunities, and for general working capital purposes.



  • Evan Gappelberg- CEO invested $857,000

  • Reuben Tozman- COO $30,000

  • Paul Duffy- President invested $7,000


NexTech is currently pursuing three multi-billion dollar verticals in the AR industry which all drive revenue from its omni-platform called "Aritize".


Aritize™ For eCommerce:


The company launched its technologically advanced webAR for e-commerce early in 2019 and has been rapidly signing up customers onto its SaaS platform, with notable customer wins like Walther Arms, Wright Brothers, Mr. Steak, Budweiser and many more. NexTech has the first 'full funnel' end-to-end eCommerce solution for the AR industry including its 3D product capture, 3D ads for Facebook and Google, 'Try it On' technology for online apparel, 3D and 360-degree product views, and 'one click buy.' With a web enabled AR solution, NexTech has eliminated the biggest friction point of AR, which was that a consumer first had to download an app to experience AR in commerce.


Aritize™ University


The app-based solution allows companies and educational establishments to leverage all of their existing 2D assets - YouTube videos, PDF documents, PowerPoint decks, images, etc. - and then overlay immersive 3D-AR experiences on top of that content for an interactive training experience that drives productivity. It also utilizes complex algorithms to recognize and relate content to each other, allowing it to create micro-learning courses and recommend relevant training content to each individual user.


AR Hollywood Studios


The studio has created a proprietary entertainment venue for which it is producing immersive content using augmented reality as the primary display platform. Heading up AR Studios is Paul Duffy, inventor of the human hologram and President of NexTech AR Solutions. Advising the AR Studio team is Barry Sandrew, Ph.D., a visual effects pioneer and serial entrepreneur who invented digital colorization of black and white movies, as well as a process for converting 2D feature films to 3D. The NexTech engineering teams in Dallas and Austin are building out the software that will drive both AR content creation and its distribution. The Studio is expected to launch its first product in the fourth quarter of 2019.


Advisory Board members and employees were issued options that vest over three years at an exercise price of $0.60 CDN.


Charlie Fink was issued 100,000 options


Artem Tokariev issued 50,000 options


Mike Barsdale issued 50,000 options


As insiders of NexTech participated in this Offering, it is deemed to be a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61- 101"). NexTech is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, on the basis that the fair market value of the transaction does not exceed 25% of NexTech's market capitalization.


All securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance. The securities offered have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 18, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE:N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech"), a technology and emerging commercial growth company focused on bringing augmented reality ("AR") to the masses through its web-enabled AR platform for eCommerce, today announced it has launched its ARitize™ University platform to provide on-demand immersive workplace training and educational experiences.


The app-based solution allows companies and educational establishments to leverage all of their existing 2D assets - YouTube videos, PDF documents, PowerPoint decks, images, etc. - and then overlay immersive 3D-AR experiences on top of that content for an interactive training experience that drives productivity. It also utilizes complex algorithms to recognize and relate content to each other, allowing it to create micro-learning courses and recommend relevant training content to each individual user.


"We launched our WebAR for e-Commerce platform in early 2019 and now we're thrilled to announce the launch of our new ARitize™ University platform which will bring our industry-leading AR technology to market within two key industries ripe for innovation - workplace training and education," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO, NexTech. "We already have a ton of interest from existing and new customers for our ARitize™ University and expect to be announcing customers signups shortly. Half of the U.S. workforce will soon be remote, meaning businesses need solutions that can effectively train employees without seeing them in person. Education is also becoming more remote and mobile, with more than six million students taking online classes. There has never been more demand for AR in education and training than there is now, and NexTech has the most advanced solution on the market to meet those needs."


ARitize™ University is essentially a plug-and-play application that can be up and running in as little as one day. It takes just seconds to upload smaller assets, and the pre-built backend system enables administrators to set user access guidelines quickly. Monthly bulk licensing plans are available to provide a cost-efficient and scalable solution for organizations of any size.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Signs Contract with TruBLEND Learning to Develop Immersive Augmented Reality Educational Experiences for Scenic Hudson Park Network in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 13, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech") a technology and emerging commercial growth company focused on bringing augmented reality ("AR") to the masses through its web-enabled AR platform for eCommerce, today announced it has been contracted by TruBLEND Learning to develop immersive augmented reality experiences for Scenic Hudson's park network.


The companies will create AR learning content to be used by patrons at in-park kiosks at 40 national parks within Hudson Valley, New York. The AR experiences will include totem poles that capture the history of local towns through artwork, as well as holograms at kiosks that interact with visitors. Park visitors will engage with the AR by utilizing Nextech's mobile app and pointing their phone camera at the kiosks to engage the experience.


"Our nation's parks are some of our oldest and best resources that offer unique learning experiences for all visitors, from families to students. Generally you're handed a 2D paper map and once you set out in the park, there is not much engagement or knowledge transfer," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. "By partnering with TruBLEND Learning, using our augmented reality technology platform we're changing the way visitors engage with our outdoor spaces, which is huge. Interactive kiosks and holograms will serve as immersive learning experiences spaced throughout the park, providing a more engaging experience than ever before."


"TruBLEND Learning builds learning experiences that are explicit to the needs of clients. In working with Scenic Hudson and NexTech AR we are connecting our natural resources and learning experiences with technology," said Freddie Collazo, Founder & CEO of TruBLEND Learning. "You can disconnect from your phones to enjoy visiting a park, and if you need it, access the hologram on the kiosk for assistance. Scenic Hudson protects over 40 natural parks within the Hudson Valley, NY, and we're enriching visitors' everyday experiences with AR technology."


There are more than 8,500 state parks across the United States, according to the National Association of State Park Directors, with more than 807 million annual visitors. With only 18,489 full time park personnel combined across all parks (barely two per park), there is a significant need for alternative educational tools such as AR to engage with visitors.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Announces Technological Breakthrough Enabling Dynamic 3D Web AR Renderings of Complicated Objects in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


New York, NY and Toronto, ON, June 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTC: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE:N29), a technology and emerging commercial growth company focused on bringing augmented reality (“AR”) to the masses through its web-enabled AR platform for eCommerce, announced today a technological breakthrough that enables dynamic 3D renderings of complicated objects through its Web AR platform.


NexTech’s newest capabilities include an upgraded GLTF (“3rd object”) renderer with enhanced lighting options to suit a vast array of products with different textures and finishes. This will be particularly attractive within the jewelry industry where it has previously proven impossible to produce a 3D AR rendering of high clarity for shiny items like diamonds, rings, necklaces, and more. NexTech’s breakthrough Web AR solution now includes enhancements including:



  • Lighting options to suit a vast array of products

  • Additional environments to perfect the reflected surroundings of the product

  • Options to change the color of the lighting for maximum impact

  • Additional drop shadow options

  • Increased rendering for more material types and variations

  • Enhanced control over settings like mouse/touch sensitivity, speed, and background effects


“This is an absolute game-changer for NexTech, as we’re now able to offer the most pristine and dynamic 3D AR experience within the jewelry industry where strong demand for Web AR exists. Previous offerings resulted in renderings that were blurry, dull, and lacking in clarity that truly showcased the quality of the product. With our technology, you can now view a diamond ring as if you were looking at it directly in the jeweler’s display case,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. “This technology enhancement is just another instance of our continued innovation of AR technology within retail, and one that should enable us to drive immediate revenue by penetrating untouched verticals with our Web AR solution, which is the most complete offering on the market.”


With the help of AR and AI technology the eCommerce jewelry market is expected to triple by 2020; e-Commerce currently comprises approximately 4-5% of total jewelry sales but that number will trend towards 10-15% by 2020 according to Statisca, as consumers continue to trend toward online shopping, even for high value and expensive items. The U.S. online watch and jewelry market is projected to reach $10 billion by 2025, according to WatchPro, signifying a significant opportunity for NexTech as retailers seek innovative technologies that can push consumers toward conversion.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech And LivePerson To Demo Conversational Commerce Platform Integrating AR With Messaging On Main Stage at AWE USA Conference May 31, 2019 in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


Company to present a new use case for Sentiment Analysis capabilities within its AR eCommerce platform, featuring Conversational Commerce technology

NEW YORK and TORONTO, May 29, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) today announced that CEO Evan Gappelberg and President Paul Duffy will team up with LivePerson  (NASDAQ: LPSN) to showcase its sentiment analysis capabilities for augmented reality (AR) eCommerce at the Augmented World Expo (AWE) USA Conference, taking place in the heart of Silicon Valley May 29-31, 2019 at the Santa Clara Conference Center in Santa Clara, CA. On the Mission City Main Stage, May 31 at 1:30 pm PT, NexTech and LivePerson will demonstrate a new and powerful retail use case for AR sentiment analysis by integrating NexTech's web-based AR into LivePerson's conversational commerce platform. During the demonstration, several pairs of Tamara Mellon shoes (co-founder of Jimmy Choo) will be shown as AR objects.



"The benefits of having an augmented reality view and one-touch purchase transaction without having to leave the native messaging application makes the eCommerce interaction super simple and seamless for consumers and changes the retail landscape forever," comments Scott Starr, LivePerson AVP Retail. "Conversational Commerce leverages humans, artificial intelligence and now AR to deliver more personalized shopping experiences for consumers in the messaging channels they use each day."



"We are very excited and fortunate to be partnering with LivePerson and Tamara Mellon, two leaders and visionaries in their respective fields," comments Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "The ability to demonstrate how commerce can be transformed and disrupted using LivePerson's conversational messaging and NexTech's augmented reality features at AWE is giant step forward for NexTech as well as the emerging AR industry as a whole."


"With the integration of NexTech's AR with Chat and LivePerson's conversational commerce platform and sentiment analysis - both with natural language and computer vision - we're creating a new transformative technology for retailers to convert shoppers into buyers, reduce returns and build brand loyalty by measuring customer responses to products in real-time," said Paul Duffy, NexTech president. "This is a one-of-a-kind technology, unique to both the retail and AR industries.  By tapping into sentiment analysis, brands are no longer confined to a binary model of analytics, but rather can utilize a full spectrum of sentiment in order to deliver targeted AR experiences and drive traffic to their online stores."


AWE USA is an annual augmented and virtual reality conference and expo attended by creators, investors, developers and product leaders representing some of the most innovative companies working in the AR/VR sector. 2019 marks the 10th annual conference. With 7,000 attendees, 250 exhibitors, 300 speakers seen on over 100,000 sq. ft. of expo space, "AWE is the CES of the future, the very near future," says USA Today. Some of the featured brands attending will be Amazon, Facebook, Google, Disney, GE, Walmart, Qualcomm, and Oculus.


NexTech has built its AR and AI eCommerce platform as an affordable, scalable, customizable, and most importantly, easy solution to integrate within an existing web interface, making NexTech one of the leaders in the rapidly growing AR industry, estimated to hit $120 billion by 2022,  according to Statista.


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used for eCommerce, retail and education.

As the adoption of AR accelerates across all platforms, including iOS and Android, NexTech will be a big winner as it sits right in the middle of this adoption.  Only this week on May 20th, 2019 we press released that our client Budweiser is using our ARitize ™ app to celebrate its 25th anniversary of the Budweiser stage in Toronto. Our unique and innovative AR-3D technology offerings are proving to be very attractive to both large and small companies seeking to deploy this incredibly powerful marketing tool. This financing will allow us to accelerate our already-aggressive growth targets.”


The Company is actively looking for additional acquisitions and continuing to develop its new business pipeline, targeting high-growth verticals such as eCommerce, Education & Training, and Live Streaming & Telepresence, with an initial focus on the global retail eCommerce market, projected to reach $4.8 trillion in 2021, according to Statista. Recent research has shown that 40% of online shoppers would be willing to pay more for a product if they could experience it through AR, while 71% of shoppers indicated they would shop at a brand more often if it offered AR experiences.


NexTech has built its AR and AI eCommerce platform as an affordable, scalable, customizable, and most importantly, easy solution to integrate within an existing web interface, making NexTech one of the leaders in the rapidly growing AR industry, estimated to hit $120 billion by 2022, according to Statista.


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education in the medical device market.


All securities issued in the financing will be subject to a 4-month hold period in Canada and such longer periods as may be required under other applicable securities laws. The financing is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.


As mentioned, certain directors, officers and other insiders have committed to participate in the offering. Accordingly, any such participation would be considered a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation requirements and majority of the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Section 5.5(a) and Section 5.7(1)(a) in respect of any such related party transaction on the basis that the fair market value of the transaction does not exceed more than 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.

Branded Augmented Reality Activation to Celebrate Budweiser Stage's 25th Anniversary


New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 20, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech") today announced the roll out of their ARitizeTM App with a Budweiser-branded augmented reality activation to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Toronto's Budweiser Stage. Budweiser selected NexTech's ARitize™ app to trigger an augmented reality experience which is activated when pointing the phone at a 25th anniversary Budweiser can. Starting today, May 20th, 2019, NexTech will be running a social media driven contest giving away season tickets to the Budweiser stage which will be featuring over 60 acts including, Lenny Kravitz, Bryan Adams, Lionel Ritchie, Mary J. Blidge, Adam Sandler, Jimmy Buffett, Wiz Khalifa, Blink 182, Iron Maiden, Beck, Game of Thrones Live, and many more.


See the full list here


The ARitizeTM App, available on both Apple and Android mobile devices, uses advanced 3D imaging technology to create engaging augmented reality experiences. Available to both brands and individuals, the app allows users to tell their stories through curating a branded channel of interactive activations that enhance existing content, materials and goods. With a low entry cost for mass deployment via mobile phones, ARitize™ App experiences are consistent across all existing content mediums.


"We're excited to be launching our ARitizeTM App with an activation for a well-respected brand like Budweiser and showcasing how augmented reality can enhance customer engagement," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "Our app allows brands to curate an immersive, branded experience where they can sell, teach, communicate and share their product, service or experience through Augmented Reality (AR) that is accessible on a device all consumers use regularly - their mobile phone."


As part of the anniversary celebrations, fans will be prompted to download the ARitizeTM App when purchasing limited edition cans of Budweiser, available throughout Ontario, to gain access to an immersive brand experience and enter a contest to win Budweiser Stage season tickets. Upon launching the Budweiser activation within the app and aiming their device's camera at one of the special-edition cans, users will see different visuals, which they are encouraged to capture and share on social media as their entry into the contest. This Budweiser activation creates a significant footprint of usage of NexTech's AR solutions Aritize™ app within Canada.


Brands who implement augmented reality experiences are likely to see higher conversions. A recent study from Digital Bridge found that 74 percent of consumers expect retailers to offer an augmented reality experience, while Daymon reports that 72 percent of consumers said they have purchased something they were not planning to after experiencing it through AR.


NexTech has built its AR and AI eCommerce platform as an affordable, scalable, customizable, and most importantly, easy solution to integrate within an existing web interface, making NexTech one of the leaders in the rapidly growing AR industry, estimated to hit $120 billion by 2022 according to Statista.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Signs AR eCommerce Deal with The Wright Brothers USA to Provide Immersive Online Shopping Experiences in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


NexTech will ARitize™apparel and memorabilia to optimize the online shopping experience and create unique, branded learning moments tied to the history and science of aviation

NEW YORK and TORONTO, May 16, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech")(OTCQB:NEXCF)(CSE:NTAR)(FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with The Wright Brothers USA (TWBUSA) to ARitize™ several items from its product line and explore sentiment measurement technology for "Try It On" features. The Wright Brothers USA is the exclusive global licensor for The Wright Brothers trademark, which is owned by The Wright Brothers Family Foundation. NexTech will create 3D product models of The Wright Brothers® merchandise and apparel through its web AR eCommerce platform.



NexTech is converting several of The Wright Brothers products—a bicycle and a pair of sunglasses—plus a pair of aviation goggles into high-fidelity 3D models to be used on TWBUSA online stores. Customers will be able to view products in full 3D, with 360-degree rotation, as well as "try on" glasses and goggles through AR technology before purchase. Additionally, TWBUSA will explore the use of NexTech's sentiment analysis technology. When customers "try on" aviation goggles using augmented reality, their reactions will be analyzed in real-time, delivering valuable insights into shopper preferences which can be used to drive purchases and other marketing initiatives.



The AR versions of both the bicycle and goggles will also trigger a unique "moment-stealing" experience, built by the NexTech team. These interactive experiences will bring realistic lessons on engineering, aviation and technology directly into homes and classrooms. These experiences are ideal for students exploring STEM curriculum. 


"Our partnership with The Wright Brothers USA is unique as we're bringing together two different use-cases for augmented reality: retail and education," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. "The Wright Brothers store can provide shoppers with a truly customized online retail experience using sentiment analysis and 'Try it On' features while also keeping the rich history and legacy of the brothers alive using 3D, volumetric learning experiences that come to life when customers interact with memorabilia."


"The Wright Brothers USA is pleased to announce a collaborative effort to leverage the augmented reality expertise of NexTech with the strength of The Wright Brothers brand. TWBUSA seeks products and services that embody the character of the Wright brothers who are American icons of inventiveness and innovation," said Kenneth Botts, President of The Wright Brothers USA. "To that end, we believe new technologies such as augmented reality fit well to boost The Wright Brothers Store online experience for our visitors. Furthermore, AR technology aligned with The Wright Brothers brand has the potential to create that twinkle-in-the-eye moment for STEM students, inspiring our future pilots and aerospace engineers."


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education in the medical device market.


About The Wright Brothers USA


The Wright Brothers USA is the exclusive global licensor for The Wright Brothers trademark, which is owned by The Wright Brothers Family Foundation. Appointment of The Wright Brothers USA marked the first time the foundation had commissioned an agency to create, develop and build a brand around commercial products and services bearing the brothers' famous name. Founding partners Kenneth Botts and Doug Knopp lead the company, which is based in Dayton, OH, the birthplace of aviation. A portion of all licensing royalties goes directly to The Wright Brothers Family Foundation.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Partners with The Khronos Group for Future 3D Commerce Standards and Guidelines in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 8, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech") today announced that it joined Khronos an exploratory group of leading retailers, manufacturers, and technology companies in a groundbreaking collaboration to establish 3D commerce standards and guidelines. The exploratory group was formed by Khronos® Group, an open consortium of leading companies creating advanced 3D standards, at the end of April. Adobe, Deloitte Consulting, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, NVidia, Pinterest, Qualcomm, Samsung and Shopify are among the tech companies participating in the exploratory group.


Khronos cited a study by Gartner that predicts massive growth for AR/VR shopping in the next few years as high-speed 5G technology expands worldwide. Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 100 million consumers will shop using AR technology. About fifty percent of retailers plan to deploy AR/VR 3D technology by next year, according to the report. With 5G's higher speeds consumers will be able to experience real-time renderings creating truly immersive experiences. Once 5G technology is available NexTech is planning to launch a holographic fully volumetric 3D-AR human assistant which can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education.


The exploratory group will work together to research the creation of standards and guidelines to produce and distribute real-time 3D representations of products so they can be experienced realistically and consistently across all platforms and devices, such as mobile, Web and Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) solutions.


"We are excited to join this incredible group of leading companies to help further the creation and adoption of 3D virtual products across a variety of platforms. As 3D visualization technologies become more prevalent, it's crucial to be able to present these experiences consistently across multiple consumer endpoints like eCommerce websites, apps, in social feeds, and in ad units," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "Our diverse tech stack and leadership position in AR e-commerce makes us an ideal member for this group, as we're able to address a major pain point through our solutions - transforming content from 2D into the 3D-AR e-commerce world. We look forward to collaborating together to solve the industry's friction points within 3D visualization, and to develop new standards that can shape the future of the technology."


With 3D poised to grow as a new shopping medium for product manufacturers, retailers and advertising platforms, key players in the industry are now looking at how to scale production and achieve broad distribution for virtual products with optimized industry workflows to minimize costs. Working in collaboration with NexTech on this initiative are leading global retail brands and technology companies including Adobe, Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, Deloitte Consulting, Facebook, Ferguson Ventures, Google, Houzz, IKEA, JD.com, Lowe's, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Pinterest, Qualcomm, Samsung, Shopify, Target, ThreeKit, Topline Furniture, Unity Technologies, UX3D, Wayfair, and Williams-Sonoma Inc./Outward.


NexTech's industry-leading AR solutions empower retail organizations to use AR experiences to reach consumers at various touchpoints, including eCommerce, social media, and ad networks. The company has also enhanced its product offerings for 3D asset creation, making it easier for retailers to turn products into rich AR experiences.


About the Khronos Group

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Integrates Microsoft Azure (AI) and Launches Sentiment Analysis Capabilities Within 'Try-It-On' AR Solution Creating Industry's Most Personalized Online Shopping Experience in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


Latest addition to the web-based solution utilizes computer vision technology to capture consumer sentiment while online shopping as a next step towards creating a more personal and intelligent shopping experience

NEW YORK and TORONTO, April 30, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) )(FSE: N29) today announced the launch of sentiment analysis capabilities within its 'Try-It-On' augmented reality (AR) experience for online retail, the second in a series of sentiment-based technology solutions being developed for its patent pending web-enabled AR eCommerce platform and site optimization.


This latest feature is an integration of computer vision technology programmed to analyze shoppers' sentiment in real time as they 'try on' different products. Using Microsoft Azure, the technology is able to live sample shoppers' facial expressions every few seconds and will make recommendations through on-screen prompts based on a positive or negative reaction. Currently, the prototype of prompts is set on 'smiling', so when a potential customer smiles when 'trying on' an item, the technology will recognize that sentiment and display an on-screen prompt to urge the shopper to add the item to their cart.


"The release of our sentiment analysis technology closes the loop on personalizing the online shopping experience by using a consumer's actual physical reaction to a product to gather data around preference and style," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "With the ability to gauge shoppers' reaction to an item in real time, we can now mirror the in-store experience online by urging shoppers to make a purchase when we know they're happy with a product or can recommend a different product when we know they're dissatisfied. It's a similar effect to the attentiveness of an in-store employee trying to persuade the customer to buy something they are trying on, except now it can be done digitally both at the point of purchase and through retargeting at a later time."


Online retailers are able to further personalize the online shopping experience by customizing both the sentiment thresholds in the feature as well as the on-screen prompts to more accurately target customers and influence shopping behavior. Along with encouraging immediate purchase of an item a consumer reacts positively to, retailers can use the sentiment data to refine outbound marketing tactics such as email blasts and coupon codes to reflect the items the consumer was individually excited about.


"Our goal with the sentiment analysis technology is to make online shopping intelligent, and to empower retailers to better serve their consumers through smart data and innovative technologies," said Gappelberg. "Retailers using this technology will be able to convert customers at a higher rate by having insights into what they like and what they don't, and refining what's marketed to them, creating the customized experience consumers desire to empower their purchasing decisions."


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used across all commerce.

Foottraffik will resell NexTech’s AR Dispensary eCommerce platform, its 3D advertising capabilities, and its virtual “AR showrooms.” AR Dispensary utilizes immersive AR technology and rich 3D 360-degree photography to provide an eCommerce experience unparalleled in the legal cannabis industry. The white-label web-based AR solution, integrated into a dispensary’s website seamlessly through just a snippet of code, allows consumers to preview products like flowers, gear, pre-rolls, and more from home or on-the-go. The platform can also support features for online ordering/pickup, and online ordering/delivery (where permitted), creating a complete digital dispensary experience.


“We are pleased to announce this strategic partnership with Foottraffik and to continue our penetration of the burgeoning legal cannabis industry by offering the most complete end-to-end AR solutions on the market,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “We believe the combination of Foottraffik’s industry expertise and vast client network provides an optimal vehicle for distribution of our technology on a broader scale, while empowering dispensaries to increase sales and provide a more complete customer experience. ”


With spending on legal cannabis worldwide expected to reach $57 billion by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, on-demand, interactive AR experiences are the next step towards improving customers’ path to purchase. This partnership continues NexTech’s penetration into the burgeoning market, following the release of its AR Dispensary platform in March 2019, and its deal with Cannvas Medtech Inc., a leading digital cannabis education and business technology company, in January 2019.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Signs AR eCommerce Deal with Cheeterz® Firearm Accessories in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


NEW YORK and TORONTO, April 25, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Cheeterz Firearm Accessories to ARitize™ segments of its product line. Cheeterz manufactures and sells accessories and devices which make the shooting process easier, including the proprietary Cheeterz "Assisted Load Ammunition" system. NexTech AR will provide 3D product models to Cheeterz through its web AR eCommerce platform, with the goal to introduce augmented reality as a part of Cheeterz overall brand delivery.



"Cheeterz is excited to partner with NexTech AR in delivering unique and industry-leading experience to our clients," said Richard Wessler, Chief Commercial Officer at Cheeterz Firearm Accessories. "Our goal is to leverage augmented reality technology to increase product and brand awareness in both the digital and physical retail spaces. We believe that the innovative spirit that has brought our organizations together will forge a trend-setting path for the industry, and we want to be the tip of the spear."



NexTech's ARitize™ eCommerce solution is a monthly software as a service (SaaS) software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis while being centrally hosted in the cloud. NexTech's SaaS subscription platform enables retailers to transform 2D images into true 3D AR experiences. Utilizing simple embed coding, NexTech's browser-based technology eliminates the gap online shoppers feel between themselves and the product, allowing them to effectively try or place the product in their home before they buy it.


NexTech will convert Cheeterz's line of universal fit, single-use assisted load cartridges into high fidelity 3D AR product images to be used on product pages and in 3D ads. This includes the existing line of devices compatible with semi-automatic weapons as well as forthcoming device lines made for revolvers and sporting rifles, which will be available later this year. Customers who visit the Cheeterz online store or encounter an ad will be able to view the cartridges in full 3D with 360-degree rotation, and "place" the device in their space to understand the size and functionality before making a purchase.


"We are excited to sign up our second customer in the firearms industry in just two weeks and expect more customer sign-ups in the coming weeks," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "Our AR product images and rotation capabilities will enable buyers to fully examine and understand the product before they buy, similar to how they would experience in-store shopping. We're excited to help Cheeterz provide its customers with a one-of-a-kind immersive eCommerce experience."


Cheeterz Firearm Accessories was founded in 2017 by engineer and inventor Richard Roe to help people gain proficiency with their firearms by taking away the pain points associated with shooting. All Cheeterz devices are American-made in Des Arc, Arkansas.


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education in the medical device market.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech's ARitize(TM) eCommerce Platform Selected by Just Vertical to Provide Immersive Augmented Reality Online Shopping Experiences in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

New York, NY and Toronto, ON, April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) today announced that it has signed a deal with Just Vertical, a hydroponic farming technology company, to provide augmented reality solutions to enhance the online shopping experience. Just Vertical will utilize NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce platform to create true 3D AR models of its AEVA hydroponic farming system, enabling consumers to ‘place’ it in their home before purchase to assure correct sizing and aesthetic appeal.


"Traditional agriculture is in dire need of disruption, as the current solutions on the market are not cutting it for consumers. We believe we’re on the path to changing that – our AEVA system has already helped to save more than two million liters of water, grown more than 10,000 pounds of fresh local food, and eliminated more than 100 million miles of food transport,” said Kevin Jakiela, co-founder of Just Vertical. “We chose NexTech to ARitize™ our AEVA system because we know it will provide a better level of education for our product and empower the consumer’s path to purchase as they shop on our website. We’re excited to provide our consumers an AR shopping experience like no other in the agricultural industry.”


NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce solution is a monthly SaaS subscription platform that enables retailers to transform 2D images into true 3D AR experiences. Utilizing two lines of simple coding, NexTech’s browser-based technology eliminates the gap online shoppers feel between themselves and the product, allowing them to effectively try or place the product in their home before they buy it. Just Vertical’s customers will be able to view the AEVA farming system in high fidelity 3D, with full 360-degree rotation, as if they were walking directly around the item themselves.


“For retailers selling larger-sized items, like Just Vertical’s AEVA farming system, utilizing AR technologies to showcase the product online provides an edge that can push consumers toward purchase. Many are hesitant to purchase a large item online without seeing it first in their living space. Our ARitize™ eCommerce platform enables them to do just that,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “The selection of our ARitize™ eCommerce platform by yet another retailer not only highlights the demand for innovative AR technologies in the eCommerce space, but also validates the power of our industry-leading solutions as we continue to grow our customer-base.”


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Raises $1,580,000 In Management Led Round in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

CEO Evan Gappelberg Invests $857,000


New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 12, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech"), a rapidly growing technology and emerging growth company focused on bringing augmented reality ("AR") to the masses, is pleased to announce that it has raised $1,580,000 with an expected closing date of 7/15/19. The Company plans to use the net proceeds of the offering to hire additional sales people, pursue M&A opportunities, and for general working capital purposes.



  • Evan Gappelberg- CEO invested $857,000

  • Reuben Tozman- COO $30,000

  • Paul Duffy- President invested $7,000


NexTech is currently pursuing three multi-billion dollar verticals in the AR industry which all drive revenue from its omni-platform called "Aritize".


Aritize™ For eCommerce:


The company launched its technologically advanced webAR for e-commerce early in 2019 and has been rapidly signing up customers onto its SaaS platform, with notable customer wins like Walther Arms, Wright Brothers, Mr. Steak, Budweiser and many more. NexTech has the first 'full funnel' end-to-end eCommerce solution for the AR industry including its 3D product capture, 3D ads for Facebook and Google, 'Try it On' technology for online apparel, 3D and 360-degree product views, and 'one click buy.' With a web enabled AR solution, NexTech has eliminated the biggest friction point of AR, which was that a consumer first had to download an app to experience AR in commerce.


Aritize™ University


The app-based solution allows companies and educational establishments to leverage all of their existing 2D assets - YouTube videos, PDF documents, PowerPoint decks, images, etc. - and then overlay immersive 3D-AR experiences on top of that content for an interactive training experience that drives productivity. It also utilizes complex algorithms to recognize and relate content to each other, allowing it to create micro-learning courses and recommend relevant training content to each individual user.


AR Hollywood Studios


The studio has created a proprietary entertainment venue for which it is producing immersive content using augmented reality as the primary display platform. Heading up AR Studios is Paul Duffy, inventor of the human hologram and President of NexTech AR Solutions. Advising the AR Studio team is Barry Sandrew, Ph.D., a visual effects pioneer and serial entrepreneur who invented digital colorization of black and white movies, as well as a process for converting 2D feature films to 3D. The NexTech engineering teams in Dallas and Austin are building out the software that will drive both AR content creation and its distribution. The Studio is expected to launch its first product in the fourth quarter of 2019.


Advisory Board members and employees were issued options that vest over three years at an exercise price of $0.60 CDN.


Charlie Fink was issued 100,000 options


Artem Tokariev issued 50,000 options


Mike Barsdale issued 50,000 options


As insiders of NexTech participated in this Offering, it is deemed to be a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61- 101"). NexTech is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, on the basis that the fair market value of the transaction does not exceed 25% of NexTech's market capitalization.


All securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance. The securities offered have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

It takes just seconds to upload smaller assets, and the pre-built backend system enables administrators to set user access guidelines quickly. Monthly bulk licensing plans are available to provide a cost-efficient and scalable solution for organizations of any size.


The global workplace training market was worth $362 billion in 2017, according to Statista. Statista also reported that in 2017, 85 percent of businesses use some sort of in-house instructor to manage employee training. This represents a significant opportunity for NexTech's ARitize™ University to penetrate the market by providing an AR foundation for organizations to build training programs upon.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Signs AR eCommerce Deal with Luxe Cannabis Company BRNT Designs in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


New York, NY and Toronto, ON, June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with BRNT Designs, a designer of architecturally unique accessories for creative and sophisticated cannabis users, to ARitize™ its entire product line. NexTech is going to provide 3D product models to BRNT Designs through its web AR eCommerce platform.


“We are thrilled to be working with NexTech AR and using their AR eCommerce solution for our entire product line of accessories for the creative and self-expressive cannabis consumer,” says Ally McIlwraith, Director of Marketing for BRNT Designs.


NexTech is continuing to sign up a diverse array of AR eCommerce customers to its SaaS platform including but not limited to, Block Scientific, Walther Arms, Wright Brothers, Vertical Designs, and many more. The company will be converting BRNT Designs’ product line of pipes, ashtrays, rolling trays, and storage jars into high fidelity 3D models to be used on online product pages, and for use in a BRNT Designs showroom app. BRNT Designs’ existing and future customers will be able to view the products in full 3D on the BRNT Designs website, with 360-degree rotation, and to “place” the products in their space to understand the quality of craftsmanship and artistic vision of each piece before purchase. 


“The growth of the legal cannabis market has consumers looking to replace or upgrade their accessories, seeking a more personalized consumption experience that matches them individually. As such, accessories manufacturers need to match that experience at retail, to best showcase their products to consumers. What better way than with AR?” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “BNRT Designs’ accessories are more than just products - they are artistic experiences that will show extremely well utilizing our immersive AR solution. We are very excited to be bringing our web-enabled AR technology to an industry leader like BRNT Designs.” 


With spending on legal cannabis worldwide expected to reach $57 billion by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, on-demand, interactive AR experiences are the next step towards improving customers’ path to purchase. Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education in the medical device market.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Launches ARitize(TM) University to Provide Immersive Workplace Training and Educational Experiences in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 18, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE:N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech"), a technology and emerging commercial growth company focused on bringing augmented reality ("AR") to the masses through its web-enabled AR platform for eCommerce, today announced it has launched its ARitize™ University platform to provide on-demand immersive workplace training and educational experiences.


The app-based solution allows companies and educational establishments to leverage all of their existing 2D assets - YouTube videos, PDF documents, PowerPoint decks, images, etc. - and then overlay immersive 3D-AR experiences on top of that content for an interactive training experience that drives productivity. It also utilizes complex algorithms to recognize and relate content to each other, allowing it to create micro-learning courses and recommend relevant training content to each individual user.


"We launched our WebAR for e-Commerce platform in early 2019 and now we're thrilled to announce the launch of our new ARitize™ University platform which will bring our industry-leading AR technology to market within two key industries ripe for innovation - workplace training and education," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO, NexTech. "We already have a ton of interest from existing and new customers for our ARitize™ University and expect to be announcing customers signups shortly. Half of the U.S. workforce will soon be remote, meaning businesses need solutions that can effectively train employees without seeing them in person. Education is also becoming more remote and mobile, with more than six million students taking online classes. There has never been more demand for AR in education and training than there is now, and NexTech has the most advanced solution on the market to meet those needs."


ARitize™ University is essentially a plug-and-play application that can be up and running in as little as one day. It takes just seconds to upload smaller assets, and the pre-built backend system enables administrators to set user access guidelines quickly. Monthly bulk licensing plans are available to provide a cost-efficient and scalable solution for organizations of any size.


The global workplace training market was worth $362 billion in 2017, according to Statista. Statista also reported that in 2017, 85 percent of businesses use some sort of in-house instructor to manage employee training. This represents a significant opportunity for NexTech's ARitize™ University to penetrate the market by providing an AR foundation for organizations to build training programs upon.


ARitize™ University is live and will be available for all to download in the Google Play (for Android) and App Store (for iOS) by the end of June.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Signs Contract with TruBLEND Learning to Develop Immersive Augmented Reality Educational Experiences for Scenic Hudson Park Network in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 13, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech") a technology and emerging commercial growth company focused on bringing augmented reality ("AR") to the masses through its web-enabled AR platform for eCommerce, today announced it has been contracted by TruBLEND Learning to develop immersive augmented reality experiences for Scenic Hudson's park network.


The companies will create AR learning content to be used by patrons at in-park kiosks at 40 national parks within Hudson Valley, New York. The AR experiences will include totem poles that capture the history of local towns through artwork, as well as holograms at kiosks that interact with visitors. Park visitors will engage with the AR by utilizing Nextech's mobile app and pointing their phone camera at the kiosks to engage the experience.


"Our nation's parks are some of our oldest and best resources that offer unique learning experiences for all visitors, from families to students. Generally you're handed a 2D paper map and once you set out in the park, there is not much engagement or knowledge transfer," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. "By partnering with TruBLEND Learning, using our augmented reality technology platform we're changing the way visitors engage with our outdoor spaces, which is huge. Interactive kiosks and holograms will serve as immersive learning experiences spaced throughout the park, providing a more engaging experience than ever before."


"TruBLEND Learning builds learning experiences that are explicit to the needs of clients. In working with Scenic Hudson and NexTech AR we are connecting our natural resources and learning experiences with technology," said Freddie Collazo, Founder & CEO of TruBLEND Learning. "You can disconnect from your phones to enjoy visiting a park, and if you need it, access the hologram on the kiosk for assistance. Scenic Hudson protects over 40 natural parks within the Hudson Valley, NY, and we're enriching visitors' everyday experiences with AR technology."


There are more than 8,500 state parks across the United States, according to the National Association of State Park Directors, with more than 807 million annual visitors. With only 18,489 full time park personnel combined across all parks (barely two per park), there is a significant need for alternative educational tools such as AR to engage with visitors.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Announces Technological Breakthrough Enabling Dynamic 3D Web AR Renderings of Complicated Objects in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


New York, NY and Toronto, ON, June 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTC: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE:N29), a technology and emerging commercial growth company focused on bringing augmented reality (“AR”) to the masses through its web-enabled AR platform for eCommerce, announced today a technological breakthrough that enables dynamic 3D renderings of complicated objects through its Web AR platform.


NexTech’s newest capabilities include an upgraded GLTF (“3rd object”) renderer with enhanced lighting options to suit a vast array of products with different textures and finishes. This will be particularly attractive within the jewelry industry where it has previously proven impossible to produce a 3D AR rendering of high clarity for shiny items like diamonds, rings, necklaces, and more. NexTech’s breakthrough Web AR solution now includes enhancements including:



  • Lighting options to suit a vast array of products

  • Additional environments to perfect the reflected surroundings of the product

  • Options to change the color of the lighting for maximum impact

  • Additional drop shadow options

  • Increased rendering for more material types and variations

  • Enhanced control over settings like mouse/touch sensitivity, speed, and background effects


“This is an absolute game-changer for NexTech, as we’re now able to offer the most pristine and dynamic 3D AR experience within the jewelry industry where strong demand for Web AR exists. Previous offerings resulted in renderings that were blurry, dull, and lacking in clarity that truly showcased the quality of the product. With our technology, you can now view a diamond ring as if you were looking at it directly in the jeweler’s display case,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. “This technology enhancement is just another instance of our continued innovation of AR technology within retail, and one that should enable us to drive immediate revenue by penetrating untouched verticals with our Web AR solution, which is the most complete offering on the market.”


With the help of AR and AI technology the eCommerce jewelry market is expected to triple by 2020; e-Commerce currently comprises approximately 4-5% of total jewelry sales but that number will trend towards 10-15% by 2020 according to Statisca, as consumers continue to trend toward online shopping, even for high value and expensive items. The U.S. online watch and jewelry market is projected to reach $10 billion by 2025, according to WatchPro, signifying a significant opportunity for NexTech as retailers seek innovative technologies that can push consumers toward conversion.

NEW YORK and TORONTO, May 29, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) today announced that CEO Evan Gappelberg and President Paul Duffy will team up with LivePerson  (NASDAQ: LPSN) to showcase its sentiment analysis capabilities for augmented reality (AR) eCommerce at the Augmented World Expo (AWE) USA Conference, taking place in the heart of Silicon Valley May 29-31, 2019 at the Santa Clara Conference Center in Santa Clara, CA. On the Mission City Main Stage, May 31 at 1:30 pm PT, NexTech and LivePerson will demonstrate a new and powerful retail use case for AR sentiment analysis by integrating NexTech's web-based AR into LivePerson's conversational commerce platform. During the demonstration, several pairs of Tamara Mellon shoes (co-founder of Jimmy Choo) will be shown as AR objects.



"The benefits of having an augmented reality view and one-touch purchase transaction without having to leave the native messaging application makes the eCommerce interaction super simple and seamless for consumers and changes the retail landscape forever," comments Scott Starr, LivePerson AVP Retail. "Conversational Commerce leverages humans, artificial intelligence and now AR to deliver more personalized shopping experiences for consumers in the messaging channels they use each day."



"We are very excited and fortunate to be partnering with LivePerson and Tamara Mellon, two leaders and visionaries in their respective fields," comments Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "The ability to demonstrate how commerce can be transformed and disrupted using LivePerson's conversational messaging and NexTech's augmented reality features at AWE is giant step forward for NexTech as well as the emerging AR industry as a whole."


"With the integration of NexTech's AR with Chat and LivePerson's conversational commerce platform and sentiment analysis - both with natural language and computer vision - we're creating a new transformative technology for retailers to convert shoppers into buyers, reduce returns and build brand loyalty by measuring customer responses to products in real-time," said Paul Duffy, NexTech president. "This is a one-of-a-kind technology, unique to both the retail and AR industries.  By tapping into sentiment analysis, brands are no longer confined to a binary model of analytics, but rather can utilize a full spectrum of sentiment in order to deliver targeted AR experiences and drive traffic to their online stores."


AWE USA is an annual augmented and virtual reality conference and expo attended by creators, investors, developers and product leaders representing some of the most innovative companies working in the AR/VR sector. 2019 marks the 10th annual conference. With 7,000 attendees, 250 exhibitors, 300 speakers seen on over 100,000 sq. ft. of expo space, "AWE is the CES of the future, the very near future," says USA Today.

In 2019 alone, NexTech has made three revenue-generating accretive acquisitions; one in January (AR eCommerce), one in February (Hootview), one in April (Infinite Pet) – in addition the company signed an LOI on 5/7/19 which sets the stage for its fourth acquisition in 2019 and, upon closing, would push its AR-enabled eCommerce division to a trailing 12-month run rate of USD $6.5 million in consolidated revenue and $1.5 million in EBITDA.  For 2019, the company is projecting to be cash flow positive as it grows its revenue to $9.3 million USD generating $5 million in gross profits and over $2 million in EBITDA just from the AR-enabled eCommerce division with additional upside to revenue from its AR SaaS business which is now starting to sign up customers and scale.


Commenting on the financing, Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech, said, “This is a very exciting time for our company as we are both making accretive acquisitions and signing up eCommerce clients to our AR SaaS platform. We see the market for Augmented Reality and its rapid adoption only accelerating as the biggest brands on the planet have gotten behind AR. As the adoption of AR accelerates across all platforms, including iOS and Android, NexTech will be a big winner as it sits right in the middle of this adoption.  Only this week on May 20th, 2019 we press released that our client Budweiser is using our ARitize ™ app to celebrate its 25th anniversary of the Budweiser stage in Toronto. Our unique and innovative AR-3D technology offerings are proving to be very attractive to both large and small companies seeking to deploy this incredibly powerful marketing tool.

NexTech has built its AR and AI eCommerce platform as an affordable, scalable, customizable, and most importantly, easy solution to integrate within an existing web interface, making NexTech one of the leaders in the rapidly growing AR industry, estimated to hit $120 billion by 2022, according to Statista.

NGW will utilize NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce platform to showcase true 3D-AR models of their available artwork, enabling 3D-AR previewing of the monuments for clients.


"Norland’s Granite Works is committed to bringing only the best quality service to our community and clients.

With this AR solution NGW’s customers will be able to preview the monument in high fidelity 3D, with full 360-degree rotation, without having to take the added step of driving to a showroom. NexTech’s browser-based AR technology eliminates the gap online shoppers experience between themselves and the product. Using AR as a solution NGW will empower new customers to virtually place the fonts or designs on their plaque or stone of choice and see it in 3D as a virtual object, before they buy it for themselves or their loved ones. NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce solution is a monthly SaaS subscription platform that enables companies like NGW to transform 2D images into true 3D-AR experiences.


“This is another great win for our sales team which is now signing up new customers to our AR e-Commerce SaaS platform every week,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “The continued rapid adoption of our ARitize™ eCommerce platform by retailers across various industries demonstrates the demand for and effectiveness of our innovative AR technologies in the eCommerce space.”

Budweiser selected NexTech's ARitize™ app to trigger an augmented reality experience which is activated when pointing the phone at a 25th anniversary Budweiser can. Starting today, May 20th, 2019, NexTech will be running a social media driven contest giving away season tickets to the Budweiser stage which will be featuring over 60 acts including, Lenny Kravitz, Bryan Adams, Lionel Ritchie, Mary J. Blidge, Adam Sandler, Jimmy Buffett, Wiz Khalifa, Blink 182, Iron Maiden, Beck, Game of Thrones Live, and many more.


See the full list here


The ARitizeTM App, available on both Apple and Android mobile devices, uses advanced 3D imaging technology to create engaging augmented reality experiences. Available to both brands and individuals, the app allows users to tell their stories through curating a branded channel of interactive activations that enhance existing content, materials and goods. With a low entry cost for mass deployment via mobile phones, ARitize™ App experiences are consistent across all existing content mediums.


"We're excited to be launching our ARitizeTM App with an activation for a well-respected brand like Budweiser and showcasing how augmented reality can enhance customer engagement," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "Our app allows brands to curate an immersive, branded experience where they can sell, teach, communicate and share their product, service or experience through Augmented Reality (AR) that is accessible on a device all consumers use regularly - their mobile phone."


As part of the anniversary celebrations, fans will be prompted to download the ARitizeTM App when purchasing limited edition cans of Budweiser, available throughout Ontario, to gain access to an immersive brand experience and enter a contest to win Budweiser Stage season tickets. Upon launching the Budweiser activation within the app and aiming their device's camera at one of the special-edition cans, users will see different visuals, which they are encouraged to capture and share on social media as their entry into the contest. This Budweiser activation creates a significant footprint of usage of NexTech's AR solutions Aritize™ app within Canada.


Brands who implement augmented reality experiences are likely to see higher conversions.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Signs AR eCommerce Deal with The Wright Brothers USA to Provide Immersive Online Shopping Experiences in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


NexTech will ARitize™apparel and memorabilia to optimize the online shopping experience and create unique, branded learning moments tied to the history and science of aviation

NEW YORK and TORONTO, May 16, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech")(OTCQB:NEXCF)(CSE:NTAR)(FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with The Wright Brothers USA (TWBUSA) to ARitize™ several items from its product line and explore sentiment measurement technology for "Try It On" features. The Wright Brothers USA is the exclusive global licensor for The Wright Brothers trademark, which is owned by The Wright Brothers Family Foundation. NexTech will create 3D product models of The Wright Brothers® merchandise and apparel through its web AR eCommerce platform.



NexTech is converting several of The Wright Brothers products—a bicycle and a pair of sunglasses—plus a pair of aviation goggles into high-fidelity 3D models to be used on TWBUSA online stores. Customers will be able to view products in full 3D, with 360-degree rotation, as well as "try on" glasses and goggles through AR technology before purchase. Additionally, TWBUSA will explore the use of NexTech's sentiment analysis technology. When customers "try on" aviation goggles using augmented reality, their reactions will be analyzed in real-time, delivering valuable insights into shopper preferences which can be used to drive purchases and other marketing initiatives.



The AR versions of both the bicycle and goggles will also trigger a unique "moment-stealing" experience, built by the NexTech team. These interactive experiences will bring realistic lessons on engineering, aviation and technology directly into homes and classrooms. These experiences are ideal for students exploring STEM curriculum. 


"Our partnership with The Wright Brothers USA is unique as we're bringing together two different use-cases for augmented reality: retail and education," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech AR Solutions. "The Wright Brothers store can provide shoppers with a truly customized online retail experience using sentiment analysis and 'Try it On' features while also keeping the rich history and legacy of the brothers alive using 3D, volumetric learning experiences that come to life when customers interact with memorabilia."


"The Wright Brothers USA is pleased to announce a collaborative effort to leverage the augmented reality expertise of NexTech with the strength of The Wright Brothers brand. TWBUSA seeks products and services that embody the character of the Wright brothers who are American icons of inventiveness and innovation," said Kenneth Botts, President of The Wright Brothers USA. "To that end, we believe new technologies such as augmented reality fit well to boost The Wright Brothers Store online experience for our visitors. Furthermore, AR technology aligned with The Wright Brothers brand has the potential to create that twinkle-in-the-eye moment for STEM students, inspiring our future pilots and aerospace engineers."


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education in the medical device market.

The Wright Brothers USA is the exclusive global licensor for The Wright Brothers trademark, which is owned by The Wright Brothers Family Foundation.

Founding partners Kenneth Botts and Doug Knopp lead the company, which is based in Dayton, OH, the birthplace of aviation. A portion of all licensing royalties goes directly to The Wright Brothers Family Foundation.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Partners with The Khronos Group for Future 3D Commerce Standards and Guidelines in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.

New York, New York and Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 8, 2019) - NexTech AR Solutions (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) (the "Company" or "NexTech") today announced that it joined Khronos an exploratory group of leading retailers, manufacturers, and technology companies in a groundbreaking collaboration to establish 3D commerce standards and guidelines. The exploratory group was formed by Khronos® Group, an open consortium of leading companies creating advanced 3D standards, at the end of April. Adobe, Deloitte Consulting, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, NVidia, Pinterest, Qualcomm, Samsung and Shopify are among the tech companies participating in the exploratory group.


Khronos cited a study by Gartner that predicts massive growth for AR/VR shopping in the next few years as high-speed 5G technology expands worldwide. Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 100 million consumers will shop using AR technology. About fifty percent of retailers plan to deploy AR/VR 3D technology by next year, according to the report. With 5G's higher speeds consumers will be able to experience real-time renderings creating truly immersive experiences. Once 5G technology is available NexTech is planning to launch a holographic fully volumetric 3D-AR human assistant which can be programmed to be used for eCommerce or for education.


The exploratory group will work together to research the creation of standards and guidelines to produce and distribute real-time 3D representations of products so they can be experienced realistically and consistently across all platforms and devices, such as mobile, Web and Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) solutions.


"We are excited to join this incredible group of leading companies to help further the creation and adoption of 3D virtual products across a variety of platforms. As 3D visualization technologies become more prevalent, it's crucial to be able to present these experiences consistently across multiple consumer endpoints like eCommerce websites, apps, in social feeds, and in ad units," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "Our diverse tech stack and leadership position in AR e-commerce makes us an ideal member for this group, as we're able to address a major pain point through our solutions - transforming content from 2D into the 3D-AR e-commerce world. We look forward to collaborating together to solve the industry's friction points within 3D visualization, and to develop new standards that can shape the future of the technology."


With 3D poised to grow as a new shopping medium for product manufacturers, retailers and advertising platforms, key players in the industry are now looking at how to scale production and achieve broad distribution for virtual products with optimized industry workflows to minimize costs. Working in collaboration with NexTech on this initiative are leading global retail brands and technology companies including Adobe, Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, Deloitte Consulting, Facebook, Ferguson Ventures, Google, Houzz, IKEA, JD.com, Lowe's, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Pinterest, Qualcomm, Samsung, Shopify, Target, ThreeKit, Topline Furniture, Unity Technologies, UX3D, Wayfair, and Williams-Sonoma Inc./Outward.


NexTech's industry-leading AR solutions empower retail organizations to use AR experiences to reach consumers at various touchpoints, including eCommerce, social media, and ad networks. The company has also enhanced its product offerings for 3D asset creation, making it easier for retailers to turn products into rich AR experiences.


About the Khronos Group


The Khronos Group is an open industry consortium of over 140 leading hardware and software companies creating advanced, royalty-free, acceleration standards for 3D graphics, Augmented and Virtual Reality, vision processing and machine learning. Khronos standards include Vulkan®, OpenGL®, OpenGL® ES, OpenGL® SC, WebGL™, SPIR-V™, OpenCL™, SYCL™, OpenVX™, NNEF™, COLLADA™, OpenXR™ and glTF™.

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Signs LOI to Acquire eCommerce Business Generating $1.6 Million USD in Revenue and $600,000 EBITDA in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.





NEW YORK and TORONTO, May 7, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29) is pleased to announce that it has signed an LOI to acquire an eCommerce business that generated USD $1.6 million in revenue and $600,000 in EBITDA in 2018, for the purchase price of $2,000,000. The purchase will be paid for with 50% stock and 50% in cash with the stock portion priced at $0.58USD or $0.77CDN. The company is currently conducting its due diligence, which is expected to last four weeks, with an expected closing of the transaction to follow.


NexTech has already closed on three acquisitions in 2019 - one in January (AR eCommerce), one in February (Hootview), one in April (Infinite Pet) - with the most recent LOI a continued execution on its strategy to grow through the acquisition of revenue generating eCommerce companies that possess industry-leading positions. In 2019 alone, NexTech has made three revenue-generating acquisitions and upon closing of this new acquisition, NexTech will be the fastest-growing, highest revenue generating AR eCommerce company in the industry.


"This LOI sets the stage for our fourth acquisition in 2019 and, upon closing, would push our AR-enabled eCommerce division to a trailing 12-month run rate of USD $6.5 million in consolidated revenue and $1.5 million in EBITDA. For 2019, we are projecting to grow the revenue to $9.3 million USD generating $5 million in gross profits and over $2 million in EBITDA just from our AR-enabled eCommerce division," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "Since going public on October 31, 2018, we have been focused on revenue and cash flow from eCommerce acquisitions as well as launching our AR SaaS platform around our three verticals, AR eCommerce, AR university, and AR live streaming. While our AR eCommerce SaaS platform has launched with many customer wins, we're excited to be launching our AR university platform and AR live streaming both within the next 120 days, which are also expected to be very strong engines of growth in 2019."

8020Admin posted a press release NexTech Integrates Microsoft Azure (AI) and Launches Sentiment Analysis Capabilities Within 'Try-It-On' AR Solution Creating Industry's Most Personalized Online Shopping Experience in NEXTECH AR SOLUTIONS CORP.


Latest addition to the web-based solution utilizes computer vision technology to capture consumer sentiment while online shopping as a next step towards creating a more personal and intelligent shopping experience

NEW YORK and TORONTO, April 30, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) )(FSE: N29) today announced the launch of sentiment analysis capabilities within its 'Try-It-On' augmented reality (AR) experience for online retail, the second in a series of sentiment-based technology solutions being developed for its patent pending web-enabled AR eCommerce platform and site optimization.


This latest feature is an integration of computer vision technology programmed to analyze shoppers' sentiment in real time as they 'try on' different products. Using Microsoft Azure, the technology is able to live sample shoppers' facial expressions every few seconds and will make recommendations through on-screen prompts based on a positive or negative reaction. Currently, the prototype of prompts is set on 'smiling', so when a potential customer smiles when 'trying on' an item, the technology will recognize that sentiment and display an on-screen prompt to urge the shopper to add the item to their cart.


"The release of our sentiment analysis technology closes the loop on personalizing the online shopping experience by using a consumer's actual physical reaction to a product to gather data around preference and style," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "With the ability to gauge shoppers' reaction to an item in real time, we can now mirror the in-store experience online by urging shoppers to make a purchase when we know they're happy with a product or can recommend a different product when we know they're dissatisfied. It's a similar effect to the attentiveness of an in-store employee trying to persuade the customer to buy something they are trying on, except now it can be done digitally both at the point of purchase and through retargeting at a later time."


Online retailers are able to further personalize the online shopping experience by customizing both the sentiment thresholds in the feature as well as the on-screen prompts to more accurately target customers and influence shopping behavior. Along with encouraging immediate purchase of an item a consumer reacts positively to, retailers can use the sentiment data to refine outbound marketing tactics such as email blasts and coupon codes to reflect the items the consumer was individually excited about.


"Our goal with the sentiment analysis technology is to make online shopping intelligent, and to empower retailers to better serve their consumers through smart data and innovative technologies," said Gappelberg. "Retailers using this technology will be able to convert customers at a higher rate by having insights into what they like and what they don't, and refining what's marketed to them, creating the customized experience consumers desire to empower their purchasing decisions."


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020. NexTech is building out its AR and AI eCommerce offerings, which include using AI to create a guided and knowledgeable curator that can be programmed to be used across all commerce.

The reseller agreement will enable Foottraffik to market NexTech’s innovative AR eCommerce solutions to its roster of more than 125 cannabis dispensary clients including Clear Choice, Remedy, Have a Heart, The Higher Path and others.


“We are very excited to announce that two of the most innovative cannabis tech companies have united to bring forth the future of technology to the global cannabis market,” said Guillermo Bravo, CEO of Foottraffik. “Digital marketing, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence are the trifecta in the new era of cannabis. We are pleased to unite NexTechAR & Foottraffik in a partnership that will augment the reality of the cannabis industry through innovative technology and immersive consumer experiences.”


Foottraffik will resell NexTech’s AR Dispensary eCommerce platform, its 3D advertising capabilities, and its virtual “AR showrooms.” AR Dispensary utilizes immersive AR technology and rich 3D 360-degree photography to provide an eCommerce experience unparalleled in the legal cannabis industry. The white-label web-based AR solution, integrated into a dispensary’s website seamlessly through just a snippet of code, allows consumers to preview products like flowers, gear, pre-rolls, and more from home or on-the-go. The platform can also support features for online ordering/pickup, and online ordering/delivery (where permitted), creating a complete digital dispensary experience.

With spending on legal cannabis worldwide expected to reach $57 billion by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, on-demand, interactive AR experiences are the next step towards improving customers’ path to purchase. This partnership continues NexTech’s penetration into the burgeoning market, following the release of its AR Dispensary platform in March 2019, and its deal with Cannvas Medtech Inc., a leading digital cannabis education and business technology company, in January 2019.

NEW YORK and TORONTO, April 25, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Cheeterz Firearm Accessories to ARitize™ segments of its product line. Cheeterz manufactures and sells accessories and devices which make the shooting process easier, including the proprietary Cheeterz "Assisted Load Ammunition" system. NexTech AR will provide 3D product models to Cheeterz through its web AR eCommerce platform, with the goal to introduce augmented reality as a part of Cheeterz overall brand delivery.



"Cheeterz is excited to partner with NexTech AR in delivering unique and industry-leading experience to our clients," said Richard Wessler, Chief Commercial Officer at Cheeterz Firearm Accessories. "Our goal is to leverage augmented reality technology to increase product and brand awareness in both the digital and physical retail spaces. We believe that the innovative spirit that has brought our organizations together will forge a trend-setting path for the industry, and we want to be the tip of the spear."



NexTech's ARitize™ eCommerce solution is a monthly software as a service (SaaS) software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis while being centrally hosted in the cloud. NexTech's SaaS subscription platform enables retailers to transform 2D images into true 3D AR experiences. Utilizing simple embed coding, NexTech's browser-based technology eliminates the gap online shoppers feel between themselves and the product, allowing them to effectively try or place the product in their home before they buy it.


NexTech will convert Cheeterz's line of universal fit, single-use assisted load cartridges into high fidelity 3D AR product images to be used on product pages and in 3D ads. This includes the existing line of devices compatible with semi-automatic weapons as well as forthcoming device lines made for revolvers and sporting rifles, which will be available later this year. Customers who visit the Cheeterz online store or encounter an ad will be able to view the cartridges in full 3D with 360-degree rotation, and "place" the device in their space to understand the size and functionality before making a purchase.


"We are excited to sign up our second customer in the firearms industry in just two weeks and expect more customer sign-ups in the coming weeks," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "Our AR product images and rotation capabilities will enable buyers to fully examine and understand the product before they buy, similar to how they would experience in-store shopping. We're excited to help Cheeterz provide its customers with a one-of-a-kind immersive eCommerce experience."


Cheeterz Firearm Accessories was founded in 2017 by engineer and inventor Richard Roe to help people gain proficiency with their firearms by taking away the pain points associated with shooting. All Cheeterz devices are American-made in Des Arc, Arkansas.


Gartner reports 100 million consumers will shop in augmented reality online and in-store by 2020.

New York, NY and Toronto, ON, April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NexTech AR Solutions (the “Company” or “NexTech”) (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) today announced that it has signed a deal with Just Vertical, a hydroponic farming technology company, to provide augmented reality solutions to enhance the online shopping experience. Just Vertical will utilize NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce platform to create true 3D AR models of its AEVA hydroponic farming system, enabling consumers to ‘place’ it in their home before purchase to assure correct sizing and aesthetic appeal.


"Traditional agriculture is in dire need of disruption, as the current solutions on the market are not cutting it for consumers. We believe we’re on the path to changing that – our AEVA system has already helped to save more than two million liters of water, grown more than 10,000 pounds of fresh local food, and eliminated more than 100 million miles of food transport,” said Kevin Jakiela, co-founder of Just Vertical. “We chose NexTech to ARitize™ our AEVA system because we know it will provide a better level of education for our product and empower the consumer’s path to purchase as they shop on our website. We’re excited to provide our consumers an AR shopping experience like no other in the agricultural industry.”


NexTech’s ARitize™ eCommerce solution is a monthly SaaS subscription platform that enables retailers to transform 2D images into true 3D AR experiences. Utilizing two lines of simple coding, NexTech’s browser-based technology eliminates the gap online shoppers feel between themselves and the product, allowing them to effectively try or place the product in their home before they buy it. Just Vertical’s customers will be able to view the AEVA farming system in high fidelity 3D, with full 360-degree rotation, as if they were walking directly around the item themselves.


“For retailers selling larger-sized items, like Just Vertical’s AEVA farming system, utilizing AR technologies to showcase the product online provides an edge that can push consumers toward purchase. Many are hesitant to purchase a large item online without seeing it first in their living space. Our ARitize™ eCommerce platform enables them to do just that,” said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. “The selection of our ARitize™ eCommerce platform by yet another retailer not only highlights the demand for innovative AR technologies in the eCommerce space, but also validates the power of our industry-leading solutions as we continue to grow our customer-base.”

NEW YORK and TORONTO, April 16, 2019 /CNW/ - NexTech AR Solutions (the "Company" or "NexTech") (OTCQB:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:N29) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Walther Arms Inc, most famous as the manufacturer of James Bond's Walther PPK, to Aritize™ its entire product line. Walther is a German weapons manufacturer and a subsidiary of the PW Group. NexTech is going to provide 3D product models to Walther through its web AR eCommerce platform.



"We are excited to be partnering with NexTech AR. This technology will give our customers a new way to interact with our products before and after their purchase. Walther products feature many details in machining and quality, and the 3D representation will allow the customer to clearly see the differences in our product when compared to the competition," said Cody Osborn, M.Ed. Marketing Manager for Walther Arms, Inc.



NexTech is converting Walther Arms Inc.'s approximately 25 products into high fidelity 3D models to be used on Walther's product pages, in 3D ads, and for use in a Walther AR showroom app. Walther's existing and future customers will be able to view the products in full 3D on the Walther website, with 360-degree rotation, and to "place" the products in their space to understand the quality of craftsmanship before purchase.


"Being able to use augmented reality for visualizations, and 3D product views of precision high-quality products like the Walther PPK pistol and other precision products makes a ton of business sense," said Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. "We are very excited to be bringing our web-enabled AR technology to such an iconic brand and leader in its field."


Founded by Carl Walther in 1886, the company has manufactured firearms and air guns at its facility in Germany for more than 100 years. Walther Arms, Inc. is the United States Walther business unit and is based in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
