What is a virtual venue?

A virtual venue is a realistic recreation of your venue in 3D that visitors can "walk around" as if they were really there.

We can add lifelike animated characters ("avatars") with the faces and voices of the staff, performers or other people they are likely to meet in the real venue,  who can  interact with visitors.

We can also include 3D background sounds or music just as visitors would hear in the real venue.

The sights and sounds interact to make this a really authentic experience and encourage people to visit your actaul venue!

How do people visit?

Simply by browsing to a web page. The first time they visit they will be prompted to download a "plugin" which tells the web browser how to read the web page. This plugin is quick and easy to download and is only usually downloaded once, after that the visitor enters directly into the virtual venue.

What is the point?

We believe that web users are likely to spend more time on your site and visit your actual venue if you can provide an interesting and absorbing environment that leaves them keen to try out the real thing.

The virtual venue can also be linked with a database or on line ordering service.

Visitors can e.g. book a seat in a comedy club or table in a restaurant where they can actually check out what they're likely to be able to expect and see from that viewpoint.
