How do you reach a CEO sitting in a boardroom, a thousand miles away or across the world? How do you capture the imagination and attention of a site developer sitting at their mahogany desk, sifting through a mile-high stack of proposals? Elite communities have discovered the answer – virtual reality.
At the 2017 IEDC Conference in Toronto, Canada, Golden Shovel Agency unveiled the newest innovation in business and workforce attraction for economic developers: 360 Virtual Reality Immersion Videos. This technology allows site selectors and businesses to experience your community from their location. Why worry about site visits when you can bring your community directly to the site selection committee?
By creating new ways to communicate and share experiences, virtual reality is allowing consumers to connect with brands, buyers to view real estate and tourists to visit new attractions, without actually being there. It is so effective that Volvo is using virtual reality which allows people to test drive their vehicles in a fully immersive virtual world. Due to the vast potential for diverse applications, Goldman Sachs labeled virtual reality as the next computing platform. In their ‘Profiles in Innovation’ report (Goldman Sachs , 2016) they estimate that the hardware alone will be an $80 billion industry, all within the next decade.
In this webinar, Golden Shovel Agency showcased current communities who are using virtual technology immersion videos and explained how 360 VR technology is being used by economic developers as a business and workforce attraction tool.
