About this event and why we are taking time to introduce this form of VR technology to members and guests
Over the past 12 months, there has been an exponential growth in interest towards 3D and VR in general due to the current climate of travel restriction.
It is now here to stay for job fairs, internal company events and training, presentations and any collaborative virtual situation where users who already use conferencing or meeting tools like Zoom or Teams want something more.
Mario and his team will be taking us somewhere virtually in a group larger than 5 to enjoy a “club” experience from another time. Take time to showcase the technology and how he and others have applied it for clients.
Why is he taking time to help us go “somewhere else” and have a fun time?
Unreal software is here to stay:
Education and Learning – Cornell University:
Commercial application – Steelcase :
For us, we will use it for networking! Are we the first in Switzerland – no idea, we have started the journey and that is important
We are starting small, we need to learn to walk and talk before we dance or leap around from one world or room to another. You by attending and seeing the potential will be able to create our “unreal next world” experience.
That will be in the future.
Mario will lead the session from 19:00 and he has helped attendees across the globe showcasing products, supporting learning development and training managers with the use or adoption and roll-out of his VR technology solution.
For us, it is the first of a number of events planned to be more social, yet for those seeking a business application, please have an open mind about:
- Anyone in process or change management projects needing a visual and impactful visual journey.
- Anyone seeking a job who knows that in the future, being able to navigate a virtual job fair will give them an advantage.
- HR and L&D specialists who seek to differentiate themselves, improve their hiring and retention, or simply attract graduates and others who seek something new.
- Directors and CEO`s seeking cost reductions, better sales or after sales service delivery results like Steelcase.
- Real Estate professionals seeking a really immersive experience – imagine driving the car out of new home towards a school to drop the kids off (I know they will walk!) or work. Through the local streets driving like a local, it is possible.
The list goes on …….but first, let us begin in “our world.”
