The Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC) has unveiled a new, immersive VR experience, making them the first trade and exhibition centre in Malaysia to embrace the technology.

A VR based app will bring 360-degree experiences to life, showcasing MITEC’s venues and halls. It will be presented using Oculus Go, a mobile VR platform which is compatible with both Android and iOS.

The headset will allow users to explore the entire 45,000sqm venue virtually, with navigation to nearby attraction and amenities.

Gunther Beissel, chief executive officer, MITEC said: “We are committed to enhancing and delivering amazing innovative client experiences and the VR further demonstrates our monumental stride to drive technology initiatives as the leading exhibition venue in Southeast Asia.

“When it comes to planning events, organisers can view virtual experiences of exhibition halls and the venue’s capacity to get a life-like idea of their event at MITEC will be like.”

MITEC is Malaysia’s largest exhibition centre, offering 11 exhibition halls as large as eight combined football fields, as well as a ballroom and 13 meeting rooms.
