EventForte expands availability of virtual-reality hotel tours

EventForte launches EventForte VR Tours for meetings and events to the Oculus Store. This app was previously showcased at IMEX America in October. The app, which allows for three-dimensional rendering of function spaces, had already been available on Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices, and desktops.

This move makes EventForte’s event-management platform the first ever major event platform to offer a virtual reality showcase feature. EventForte plans to follow up on this Oculus Store release with releases into other virtual reality stores in the coming months.

“VR technology is the next wave of consumer experience,” said Ankit Gupta, president of EventForte. “For event planners and their clients, we wanted to give them the experience of actually being inside a venue from the convenience of their home or office.”

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | Now Available On-Demand

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


Event planners now have the ability to show clients a more lifelike representation of their event space layouts, reducing the necessity for frequent site visits.

The virtual reality platform allows users to immerse themselves in a real-life view of event diagrams and furniture layouts. A user can “walk around” either in first or third person mode using a humanoid in the venue, to get a feel of what it would be like to see and walk around the event in real life.
