We’re excited to be launching the latest Gatherings VR event spaces and features at the Conference & Incentive Travel Recovery Forum this summer. The event will take place at London’s County Hall on the 24th of June.
At the forum, we will be showcasing the incredible capabilities of Gatherings, as well as letting guests see for themselves how it works. Our Events team members Sophie and Ellie will be on hand to help VR first-timers find their way around the Oculus Quest headsets, and how to join a Gatherings event live. We take safety very seriously and will be observing strict hygiene and cleaning measures throughout the day.
Mesmerise’s Creative Director Michael Ogden said:
“We’re very excited to be sharing the amazing new Gatherings designs in person. It’s a great way to help Events colleagues experience how VR works with real-world and digital events as part of the hybrid approach we’re all looking to in future”
Angie Vaux, Founder of Women in Tech Forum recently joined a Gatherings event and was kind enough to share her feedback
“As a techie at heart, I love experiencing new technology and trying out the latest gadgets. Today, I had one of the best meeting experiences set up by the amazing team at Mesmerise using the Oculus VR headset, and I can only say WOW. It uses avatar and 4K immersive technology to provide a rich and interactive 360-degree meeting experience, whether you want to watch a presentation in the auditorium, participate in a networking event or have a personal chat on the sofa, you can easily move between the different rooms, with cityscape backdrops.”
Showcasing the new Gathering designs in person to 100s of leading Conference and Event industry professionals will be a new experience for us, as it’s one of the first in-person UK events since COVID. C&IT World Editor Calum Di Lieto said
”Yes, that’s right, you will be able to be in the same room as your peers and network in a way that has almost become a forgotten dream among all the Zoom calls. The Forum will focus on providing an opportunity for all sides of the industry to come together to discuss new strategies and … take a look at what we’ve learnt from digital and hybrid so far, and how this can be taken to the next level.”
After only being able to meet virtually for the past few months, we are very excited to meet new users in person and showcase the hard work we’ve put into the platform the last 8 months. It’ll be great to hear feedback on the latest designs and features and show just how beneficial VR can be.
If you can’t get along to the Forum in person on the 24th of June, get in touch and we’ll set up a demo for you. We‘ll also have other events in the future that you will be able to attend, and who knows – perhaps we will soon meet in Gatherings. After all, it is the future of events…!
