Event Technology Special Report: Before the Event
Simplify venue selection and design, attendee acquisition, and networking with the help of technology.
No time or budget to travel to visit venues? No problem, thanks to virtual reality.
Hotels and meeting facilities are incorporating VR so planners can walk through meeting spaces without leaving their offices. This technology is also being used during the design process. In January, Freeman launched a suite of VR services that includes VR Design Explorer, which allows clients to “walk through” experiences, venues, and events in 3-D. And companies such as AllSeated provide VR services for venues, planners, and clients, allowing them to place furniture, decor, and other elements in a virtual rendition of the space for a realistic view.
