Virtual Reality for Economic Development
Few technologies are changing the way economic developers communicate with prospective businesses and site selectors more than virtual reality. We will explore how VR is being used successfully by Minnesota economic developers to give virtual familiarization and site tours. We will demonstrate how VR is used locally and internationally and what to expect over the next year and beyond. This exciting new technology is why the Financial Times recognized virtual reality as a 2018 trend economic developers cannot ignore.
The Economic Development Association of Minnesota (EDAM) is a state-wide association of professionals who specialize in economic development. Our membership consists of public, private and nonprofit professionals who are interested in staying informed and connected to current economic development strategies and best practices. EDAM was originally established in 1967 as the Minnesota Industrial Development Association and has evolved over the last 50 years to an organization dedicated to collaboration and innovation in the economic development industry.
