  • Give the destination traveler an opportunity to visit the sights from the comfort of their own home.
  • Display multi listing search results of guests’ criteria accompanied by corresponding 360° spherical video. Streamline the booking and reservation process for guests and corporate clients.
  • As VR based tourism and travel markets grow, the demand for more information about these destinations will continue to grow as well. It is widely known among marketing agencies that the use of video and rich media has a huge impact on how consumers choose their destination. Statistics show that “look-to-book” ratios increase with the use of these mediums. There is no other industry better set to take advantage of remote familiarization than travel and tourism.
