The Adelaide Convention Centre has launched Australia’s ‘largest’ Google Virtual Tour, while also becoming the first Australian convention centre to adopt the technology across the entire building.
The Google Virtual Tour incorporates 316 panoramic photos, built from 3,792 separate images of the expanded Centre and showcases all 15,000sqm of the interior over three levels including external views of North Terrace and the Riverbank precinct.
Visitors can also tour around the perimeter of the Centre and along North Terrace using Google Street View, highlighting the centre’s proximity to major hotels, shopping, and BioMed City – the Southern Hemisphere’s largest health and medical research precinct.
Adelaide Convention Centre chief executive Alec Gilbert said that, as well as being Australia’s largest Google Virtual Tour, it’s also a first for an Australian convention centre.
The 360 degree navigation technology works like Street View so viewers have complete control of their experience and are free to explore what most interests them,” said Mr Gilbert.
“Google Maps and Street View are used all around the world so it makes it easy to access for anyone considering booking, visiting or generally interested in familiarising themselves with the Centre.”
The Google Virtual Tour forms part of the Centre’s Digital Strategy which includes social media, digital newsletters, video, a new interactive website and the iMap event planning application.
