6 Reasons Why You Should Use Virtual Reality for Your Event
Creating VR Events That Engage
VRE blend the latest technology with creativity and a deep understanding of human behaviour and psychology for engagement that makes your VR event, exhibition or product launch memorable.
Our mixed specialisms in virtual reality and psychology allow us to provide VR events that use the technology to its best effect. We know how VR should be used and the best ways to engage users, draw crowds and link the VR event to your overall event theme or company services.
A Flexible Range of VR Event Solutions
We offer a wide range of VR solutions for all types of VR events, from very large events with thousands of attendees, to smaller teams or focus groups where there may be additional requirements.
We can offer the full range of VR event experiences, from very simple fun and emotive experiences, through to experiences where delegates have to solve problems, right through to exciting multiplayer VR where teams have to work together off planet to survive.
Would you like to have your own branded VR experience for your VR event?
Sometimes a client requires a branded experience, or even a simple application to showcase a product feature or key company service.
Our team of developers can create new VR/AR experiences that match your event’s needs exactly.
So instead of an “off the shelf” solution you can instead have your own bespoke VR experience.
It is not as expensive as you think and we can cost effectively create your own company AR (hololens) or VR (Rift) experience to showcase your own product or service at your event.
Prices start from as little as £500 for a bespoke Hololens Event Experience.
Havaianas- Case Study
Havaianas had an important European launch event in Madrid and required an AR application at very short notice to showcase their new range of footwear.
Working closely with their marketing and events team, VRE created a Havaianas AR application running on Hololens within 7 days.
This allowed them to showcase their new footwear in an engaging and fun way, with users building a beach scene complete with cocktail drinks. Users then placing the new range of footwear in their new environment, walking round they could rotate and resize the footwear and explore the new products from all angles.
This project demonstrates how well AR can be integrated into the retail sector and when used correctly can encourage a great retail consumer experience, highlighting features and benefits, providing additional information on the product and most importantly driving consumer engagement.
“We commissioned VRE to create a Hololens application for a major Havaianas event in Madrid at very short notice, they amazingly turned it around in just 7 days and flew out to Madrid to deliver it on time and we were extremely pleased with the end product.”
– Filippo Trentin, Alpargatass, Havaianas.
Fischer – Case Study
Fischer had an important company-wide event and commissioned VRE to create a VR application that allowed delegates to use their fixing products and see how they work.
Working closely with their marketing, sales and engineering team VRE created a virtual construction site. This allowed users to try out Fischer products, drill holes and actually fit them, all from the safety of a virtual environment.
Due to health and safety Fischer would normally be restricted from giving this hands-on experience to many users, using VR however massively expands the number of people who can now come into contact with their products and see exactly how easy they are to use and the process for doing so.
Fischer now plan to roll this VR application out as a training tool for their internal staff, with the VR application being suitable for both events, marketing and also training, thus expanding the number of uses for their VR project.
This project demonstrates how VR events can create memorable experiences with users also reporting they know exactly how to use Fischer products now after one quick VR experience.
“We gave VRE quite a broad brief, not knowing anything about virtual reality and the benefits and abilities of the software. The VRE team developed and delivered a bespoke package to the business that exactly suited our requirements, even when we weren’t fully aware of them ourselves. The software platform perfectly emulated a “real life” construction site and the usable items (drills, anchors, cleaning utensils, steel plates) reflected the processes needed for perfect anchor installation. The VRE team really made our first steps into the world of VR much easier. So much so that the business as a whole have decided to further our training resources with the addition of VR.”
– Dan Czerwinski, Head of Marketing
Synchronised Samsung Gear VR on a Train – Case Study
VRE recently worked with award winning London PR agency Taylor Herring to deliver a unique VR experience for their client Tourism Western Australia on a train packed full of commuters.
Instead of the usual British weather and drizzly grey skies, commuters had the chance to visit Western Australia on the way to work and experience a much sunnier and warmer environment. Customers also were able to experience swimming with whale sharks and petting quokka! Using Samsung Gear VR and synchro software VRE were able to provide a simultaneous visit to Western Australia for all the commuters while they sat comfortably on the train.
Your Event Process
1 Event brief and creative discussions
We will work with you to determine your event goals, the theme, and explore what are the best options for your event. Part of this is showing you what VR and AR can do and the typical experiences you can create with the various technologies and VR applications. Typically we come to your office, so you can try out in person all the options and decide with our help which solutions best fit your event goals.
For simple events we can offer cost effective options that offer high event impact, using off the shelf licensed software that we know exactly how to apply in event contexts, using our own additional materials alongside these applications to amplify the impact.
For events requiring some bespoking we offer a broad range of solutions, from simple holographic models of your products on your stand at a trade show, through to a fully developed VR application that allows delegates to try out your products and services. For full details on our bespoking services click here.
We are a very creative team and have run VR events is some very strange places for a broad range of purposes, from running VR in the street for Disney, to VR on trains for companies running special events.
We know that it is not just about the equipment, we know logistics and we like to have a plan, A, B and C. For this reason we plan all the logistics for events in detail, delivery, access, de-rig, we will go through all the fine details with you to ensure we can get the right access, at the right time and deliver the right experience.
As part of our event planning we also build in lots of extra redundancy to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day, this is in time, personnel and also equipment.
3 Event Delivery
On the day of your event our expert teams will ensure all your delegates have a great experience, it is not the equipment that delegates always remember but often instead the friendly personable staff who run the event.
Our staff are very knowledgeable about VR, but at the same time have the personal touch and are attentive and sensitive to users needs as some VR experiences can be a little scary for some users.
They will set up your event, keeping you informed of how it will all work, make recommendations on the day if anything changes at the venue and manage the whole event from beginning to end.
