Accommodation has never been an issue in the Costa del Sol. In fact, the province of Malaga has long been living by the saying that variety is the spice of life. In this post, however, we’re not going to home in on the countless options the destination offers visitors in terms of rest and relaxation. Instead, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about virtual stages, the new technology hotels are using to present events.
We’ll be taking an in-depth look at this enticing technology that offers incredible opportunities for the MICE sector. It’s worth remembering that, according to the most recent Hosteltur report, “physical events and meetings will grow in 2022 and it’s predicted that 81% will have an in-person element”. Technology and virtual stages at hotels will play an important role in this growth.
What are virtual stages?
Using 3D technologies and innovations in general, a virtual stage is a dynamic and fictitious parallel reality. Virtual reality is arguably one of the best ways to guarantee your MICE is an interactive event. Virtual stages are becoming an increasingly important tool for hotels that are seeking to stand out from the crowd. So how do they do it? Holograms, mobile mapping and survey packs can be used to create digital places that imitate reality. These virtual spaces offer hotels the opportunity to display their products and services in a more interesting way.
Luxury stores and great experiences
Virtual stages turn great venues into great experiences. Luxury stores can treat their users not only to the comfort and wellness they expect, but also incredible experiences through virtual stages. The possibilities are boundless. Discovering restaurant menus, taking virtual tours of the hotel (or other hotels in the same chain) and reducing stress by doing something a little bit different are just three of the benefits of virtual stages.
