Business Events Perth has unveiled a suite of digital tours of Western Australia’s key conference venues.
The new 3D digital tours can be viewed by planners on any device, providing a fully immersive experience of the venues on offer on Australia’s west coast, such as Crown Perth, the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, and Optus Stadium.
Business Events Perth chief executive Gareth Martin described the new tours as a strategic investment by the convention bureau in its work to secure national and international business events for Western Australia.
“Business Events Perth recognises the need for clients to continue to view venues to plan their business events with confidence,” Martin said.
“Event planners are now able to take a virtual self-guided walk through of a Perth meeting venue and feel like they’re really there, no matter where they are in the world. This is a game changer for reigniting that confidence to plan and book a business event here in Western Australia.”
The venue tours can be found on Business Events Perth’s new website, which includes bespoke destination marketing content, delegate boosting assets and an upgraded venues and services search.
Supported by Business Events Australia’s Boost Programme, 15 3D tours of Perth venues have been made public, with more planned to be released later this year.
“Business Events Australia is pleased to partner with Business Events Perth through the Business Events Boost Programme and offer financial and marketing support to deliver innovative projects, such as the 3D digital tours, to encourage Australian businesses and organisations to host in-person events again,” said Penny Lion, executive general manager, events at Tourism Australia.
The 3D tours include capacity charts and a measuring tool for ceiling heights, walls and distances between objects.
Viewers can view the full scope of the property as a virtual ‘dollhouse’ model.
EventSpace3D chief executive Lars Frederiksen said it was a pleasure to work with Business Events Perth to make the city’s amazing venues more accessible to the world.
“EventSpace3D is proud to be the leading 3D virtual walkthrough tour provider in the hospitality and tourism industry, having captured hundreds of world-class venues in Perth and Western Australia,” Frederiksen said.
Since 30 June last year, Business Events Perth has confirmed more than 60 national and international business events for Western Australia, and has supported more than 175 intrastate business events, bringing together over 80,000 delegates to meet face-to-face.
