etc.venues reinvents pre-opening showrounds with launch of VR tour

Conference and event venue provider etc.venues have developed a unique and innovative way to show clients around a new venue before it’s even built!
Through the use of virtual reality via headsets, etc.venues can show visitors “around” their latest event space in London’s iconic County Hall. Using cutting edge technology they have created an engaging, story-telling experience that sets a new industry standard for virtual reality (VR).

Margaretha Welsford, Director of Sales at etc.venues commented “Although walking around a construction site and looking at CGI images can help build an impression of what kind of space is being created, we’ve found that VR technology provides a much clearer interpretation of the end product.

It was a massive draw at both the Venues & Events Show in London and at the IACC Europe Knowledge Festival in the Netherlands – through the use of the headsets, clients experienced the venue without leaving their seats!”

The detail of the etc.venues VR tour transports clients through the venue seeing the impressively restored original parquet flooring, the exposed brick work and the stunning view of Big Ben from the Thames Suite window.

etc.venues is the first major company of its size and scale to launch this cutting-edge technology setting a new industry standard for how virtual reality can be used to enhance the client experience.

Although extremely clever the technology is surprisingly easy to use and therefore allows for broad distribution – clients visit on their smartphones, click on the headset symbol and are transported via a headset into the venue. Clients attending onsite tours will be offered an opportunity to experience the space using virtual reality headsets which they will be given to take away.
