Is there a better way to attract your target audience? Virtual reality makes the customer’s experience more immersive, more real, by positioning the wearer as the subject of the experience, not just an observer.

The VR market is becoming increasingly more pervasive, with brands such as Oculus Rift (the pioneer), Playstation, Microsoft, and HTC leading the development and adoption of the technology.  

This innovation has applications in every line of business, from little startups to the biggest company, from gaming to tourism and beyond.

Where to use it? During exhibitions. You can create immersive experiences for important causes such as road safety or social justice campaigns. You can also create tourism experiences, imaginary spaces, immersive games, or product testing.

The result of this technology is a powerful increase in engagement on social media and allows event organizers to create more valuable content when people can share and talk about it with other viewers!

The most successful live streaming tool is Facebook Live as people can stream live video anywhere and already have an established audience to broadcast to. Live video through social media allows for direct, real-time engagement between the broadcaster and the audience.

 

 

The digital swag bag

 

Far too often, swag bags received by event attendees end up in a trash, that’s why digital swag bags have been created! Thanks to this smart innovation, don’t waste your time filling thousands of paper bags with samples and gifts attendees will forget on a chair after the conference.

So innovate with something new and turn into something people really want!

Digital goody bags are a new trend in event management to improve attendee’s experience in an environmentally conscious manner… Offer virtual packages via email or website, composed of coupon codes, videos and download links that the attendee will receive on their smartphone.

This is a very easy and inexpensive solution to satisfy participants by offering them gifts they’ll love!
