Golden Shovel Agency's PlaceVR is the first in the industry to develop VR Familiarization (FAM) Tours for business attraction, workforce attraction, and tourism. Imagine being at a trade show and asking the interested business owner to "step into your community" and experience for themselves what your community has to offer. Our talented film crew tells the story of your region and makes it come to life for the audience you want to target. We also use the latest technology to create 3D modeling of buildings, drone video, and 3D facility tours - ideal for marketing shovel-ready sites and redevelopment opportunities.
There is no better way to create the feeling of visiting a place without physically being there. When viewers engage with the video through VR headsets, they can look up, down, and in a full circle around themselves by turning their head or body. Immerse prospects in a virtual familiarization tour of your community, showcase available sites or engage prospective workers via a VR headset, website, smartphone, or at a trade show booth.
Combine the power of 360- degree videos with 3D modeling to bring your vision for developing a specific property to life. Models help investors and site selectors envision how a site could be developed or how a community can grow. Place a virtual spec building on a greenfield site or present a vision for how a community could grow in a way that makes one feel like they are really there. Existing models may be placed into the videos or they can be created from scratch. See the example in our promo video.
3D Facility Tours
Matterport technology gives you realistic, interactive 3D and VR models of existing facilities that feel as real as being there. Users can walk through an entire facility using their web browser, phone, or VR headset. Additional information (text, photos, videos, or links) can be added to ‘hot spots’ throughout the tour for providing additional information. This is a great solution for existing buildings for sale or lease, incubators, and coworking spaces.
Live Virtual Meetings
Meet together with site selectors and decision-makers wherever they are in a virtual room. In your meeting, you can share 360-degree video familiarization (FAM) and site tours. VR headsets with 3D audio create a strong sense of presence that makes participants feel like they're really in the same place together.
"I thought the PlaceVR virtual tour was very good, and this technology and service will keep getting better. Golden Shovel is an early adopter in this economic development service, and good thing, too. The virtual tour of the APEX Region was great. I felt like I was visiting and got a great introduction to the community and it's local assets."
