Right now, virtual reality and augmented reality are the most significant buzzwords in the tech industry, and for all the right reasons. Even though the technology isn’t “new” anymore; it still possesses an astonishing amount of potential to influence every industry.
Being an event planner, you are likely curious about ways you can use to integrate this high-potential technology to enhance your next event. And fortunately enough, countless ways could be used to incorporate AR and VR. Whether in tandem or alone, VR/AR technology is all-set to excite and engage all the attendees.
Offering Peace of Mind to Attendees
To assist in making your attendees feel secure, form a safe virtual reality experience. For instance, you might want to set-up a small room at the event that could allow all those who are attending your event to feel secure. And at the same time empowering them to leave their bags and possessions anywhere without the fear of getting lost. In case there isn’t enough space for a separate room, create a small storage area.
VR is bound to be successful; however, to provide top-quality experience, ensure peace of mind to your attendees.
Attend an Event Virtually
For all the learning and networking prospects they offer, conferences demand a massive amount of commitment. All the time traveling to and at the event could be enormous, particularly if the event is far from an attendee’s place. Due to this reason, the majority of people tend to avoid attending long-duration events and conferences that are far from their place.
But, what IF there was a way to solve this? How does “Virtually attending an event” sound?
Rather than spending days traveling away from work and home, you can easily attend the conference from the comfort of your couch, and still, become a part of it! Through technology, something like this would probably become the new normal. Without a doubt, “Virtual Attendees” would be a win-win for both the event planner and the attendees.
According to a May 2020 survey by Markletic Event Research, the average sponsorship package for a virtual event was $8,456. Compared to the cost of live event sponsorship for larger events and conferences, this is a bargain.
