How does a Gatherings VR experience work? A look into the process.

Integrating VR into your business model is a very smart move and can help to propel your company ahead of your competition. Yet while you might know the outcome of VR and just how it can help you, you might not be aware of the process behind it. Here we have put together an example of how the Gatherings VR experience works.

Step 1 – Sign up to Gatherings

The sign-up process for Gatherings is simple and you can have your own account within minutes. If you are heading to an event then the app will already be available on the headset you receive upon arrival and is located in the Oculus library.

Step 2 – Create your avatar

At Gatherings, we pride ourselves in our avatars and how advanced they are – while still keeping the process effortless. All you need to do is to take a selfie and within minutes we will turn this into a photorealistic avatar. This will be added to your account and can be accessed by the user portal.

Step 3 – Explore the spaces

By using your photo-realistic avatar, you can explore the different Gatherings spaces available to you. Teleport from a conference room to a breakout space, discovering just how many fantastic areas are available right at your fingertips. You can speak to others as you would in real life, with clear, spatial audio, mimicking how a conversation would sound normally. You can also use and see others’ hand movements and gestures, something which also increases the realism of the experience.

Step 4 – Utilise the company features

If you are using Gatherings for your company, there are many ways you can utilise it for your employees and clients. We will work with you to set up meeting rooms that will be branded with your company logo and colours. You can choose the view from the window and the style of the room you are in. If you wish to add in presentations or videos to enhance the experience this can be done too. You can add breakout rooms, presentation rooms and a lounge space to relax in between meetings. The process for adding attendees to this is simple; you notify others of the room and give them a specific room code to join you in.

Step 5 – Host an event

Gatherings is ideal for hosting events and conferences and there are many advanced features here that you can make the most of. Within these, you will be shown a schedule that enables you to move between rooms and try all the different things that are happening. You can watch live talks, speak with sponsors in their booths, view PDFs, watch video content and participate in live polls. 

Gatherings experiences are tailored to you and designed to elevate your business journey. VR is the future and so we want the process to be simple yet powerful, immersive and unforgettable. Get in touch with us and find out how Gatherings can work with your company today.

Feature Spotlight: Sponsor Booths

One of the biggest benefits of hosting or exhibiting at an event is a booth. Valuable marketing tools, they allow you to interact with event attendees, fellow peers and customers and get real-time customer feedback. You can boost your direct sales and get the chance to network with people that you otherwise might not have met. This is why we wanted to shine the spotlight on our VR sponsor booths. A must-have for any upcoming events and shows that you might be attending, they will aid you in taking networking to another level. 

Features of our booths;

The ability to view PDFs and videos

Take advantage of the fact you are in virtual reality with your next event booth by making the most of our PDF and video features. You don’t have to just rely on your words when speaking to delegates and customers, instead, you can effortlessly show them documents or reel clips of your product or service. This adds a new dimension to your networking and helps them to easily digest more information during the event.

The addition of live polls

Want to know what people are thinking? Polls are a fantastic way to do some market research and that is just what our booths enable you to do. Easily set up polls about your product, service or anything else you would like to know and add this to your booth. Effortlessly receive answers and customer feedback in no time at all.

Customer interactions

With our high quality, custom avatars, custom interaction in VR has never felt so realistic. Set up meetings and appointments or simply wait for people to drop by – just as you would in a real-life setting. Our booths emulate the personal connection of events, with the convenience and ease of virtual reality.

Full branding of your booth 

Our booths allow for full customisation and branding, meaning you can easily stand out in the crowd. Decorate the space with your own logo and colours, distinguishing yourself from others in the event or conference. 

Deeplink VR Games

Want to add an even greater level of interactivity to your booth? Now you can! Our deep link VR games mean you can take users directly to a game or another space outside of the original app. This could be a game to do with your company or product or just something you have added to encourage participation and pique interest. 

And so much more…

No matter what you are looking to get out of your event booth, here at Gatherings we are on hand to assist. We will work with you to make a booth that will engage and captivate your customers. Check out our website and get in touch to find out more.
