Dalton, GA – Pushing the boundaries of performance and durability for the artificial turf market for over 55 years, AstroTurf Corporation has now set a new industry standard for digital marketing with the launch of the AstroTurf University Virtual Campus. This immersive online experience enables customers to step into AstroTurf’s world and explore the latest innovations in synthetic turf, court surfaces, artificial lawns, and track system technology.
The virtual university was designed to give potential customers a game-day perspective of AstroTurf products. This never-seen-before digital environment is a complete collection of high-quality videos, insightful infographics, and photographs of existing fields and playing surfaces at schools, parks, and sports centers across America. It has everything athletic directors, facility managers, and other industry professionals require to discover opportunities to update and install surfaces.
But what makes this digital experience remarkable is the range of interactive, life-like features that take users on a journey through virtual stadiums and indoor and outdoor sports arenas.
“We wanted to give customers something next-level when exploring our products,” says Gary Jones, Director of Marketing at AstroTurf Corporation. “Whenever you step onto a new turf, you can picture the players, the crowd, the action. It’s powerful stuff. We wanted to bring that concept to the online world so people can get a genuine feel for design options, performance features, new technology, and to be able to envision real-life scenarios for their facility.”
