3D Virtual Solutions’ Commercial Director Jackie Basden guides us along the latest technology providing immersive views into an events space.
Many of my 30 years in the events industry were spent frustrated by the lack of information on venues, with inaccurate floor plans, unclear capacities and obscure wide-angle photography hindering the huge logistical process behind putting an event together. All that changed after stumbling across and investing in Matterport, the technology behind 3D Virtual Solutions that creates visual tours of events spaces in a completely accurate representation of the venue for both the client and agent.
Developed in America, Matterport has become the standard technology for 3D space capture. Using 3D scanners, the unique software captures every square metre of an events space, creating a comprehensive floorplan along the way and providing users with the most immersive virtual tour on the market.
Dropping into a room from the unique dollhouse view, you can click anywhere and view the room from multiple angles. Where are the venue’s plug sockets? Will this piece of equipment fit here? Where are the lifts positioned? These sorts of details can be answered before the day of an event using the floor plan views, measuring tools, tag points, and VR capabilities involved with Matterport. The virtual tours we create of a venue allow the agent to be an expert on the space and gives the client full confidence that they’ve made the right decision for their event.
Our on-site work takes just about a full day, a cost-effective approach as we capture everything during one site visit, with a full visual package ready to go within 48 hours, complete with a URL and embed code. We pride ourselves on our customer relations and provide an extensive aftercare service included in every package. We ensure your tours are being used effectively and to their full potential, providing help and advice with social media, Google Maps integration and sharing on third party websites.
Our team of in-house photographers can also integrate drone footage within the 3D tours, creating an “inside and out” showcase of the space that reveals the interiors and exteriors of each venue. Matterport tours are the ultimate selling tool; why show a client a static image when you can engage them in a Zoom call and virtually walk with them through the spaces as if they were there, planning the event together without anyone leaving their desk?
Since our beginnings in 2017, we’ve grown a varied client base with nationwide contracts taking us from the south coast to Inverness. We’ve produced 3D scans for a range of spaces including hotels, wedding venues, gyms and student accommodation to name but a few.
Our virtual tours are easily accessible and highly affordable, with the examples below costing between than £775 – £2000. Beautiful imagery is what we do, whether that’s in the form of a virtual tour, photography, or drone footage. The end result is a stunning showcase of your space to use online, give directly to clients, or on social media, that you’ll love for years to come.
