For the very first time, meeting planners
would now be capable of surfing through multiple event venues in any city
thanks to a virtual reality technology. The technology also includes a
360-degree video that would assist the planner in designing corporate events.
Meet L.A. Tourism is a part of the Los
Angeles Tourism & Convention Board.
The Board has launched the Virtual
Discovery L.A. portal last week. The portal has portrayed over 50 gathering and
group spaces in an immersive video. Now, meetings planners would be able to
move digitally through some of the renowned sites of Los Angeles including
Warner Brothers Studio, The Getty, Walt Disney Concert Hall, L.A. LIVE and
others. In addition, the videos also comprise a dozen VR/360 videos portraying
the function spaces inside the L.A Convention Center.
Besides, the platform also offers views
some neighborhood tours wherein meeting planners can explore graffiti murals in
the Arts District, Tiffany store on Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, outdoor cafes
in Hollywood Farmer’s Market and so on.
Xplorit has developed the virtual reality
experience of Meet L.A.
This company has created several kinds of
VR content based on the theme of meetings and leisure for various hotels since the
last few years. The Xplorit’s new offering comes after it tasted success on its
brand new Meet L.A. website that had been launched last year.
Darren Green, senior VP of sales at Meet
L.A. said that the Virtual Discovery L.A. portal enables planners to position
themselves firmly in this region. This would help them understand the location
of the important venues in this place.
Green said that they listened to their
customer advisory board about the various tools they would like to expect in
The platform of Xplorit is equipped with a
navigation bar on its left side that has extra content to offer further context
close to the venue search procedure as planners navigate through the portal.
Meeting planners can just click on any of the neighborhood of Los Angeles
Tourism and also the hotel videos that compliment the VR/360 content and also
Google Maps. Each of the venues are highlighted with pins.
