Here are 5 creative ways companies and event planners have used virtual reality (VR) booths at events, conferences, conventions, trade shows, and brand activations.
1. Enhance Sports Themed Events
From Super Bowl activations to trade shows looking to add a competitive element, we have partnered with event planners and national brands to create unforgettable Virtual Reality (VR) sporting experiences.
Virtual Reality (VR) sports games like VR Quarterback, Home Run Derby, and 3 Point Competition are guaranteed to bring your event to the next level. People of all ages and gaming experiences can enjoy testing their virtual accuracy and competing for high scores!
2. Travel the World in VR
At Maverick VR, we have created custom virtual reality (VR) experiences for dozens of “travel” or “destination” themed events. What better way to show off your hometown than by letting your guests walk the city streets or fly through the skyline? What better way to get people excited about a Trip of a Lifetime giveaway than by letting folks travel anywhere in the world at a Virtual Reality (VR) booth right next to the sign-up stand?
Thanks to Virtual Reality (VR) games and experiences like Google Earth VR, your event can pack a serious “wow factor” by virtually transporting your guests anywhere in the world in a fully immersive, photo-realistic 360-degree view. The only limit to where you can showcase is where you can think of to visit!
3. Compete in Virtual Reality (VR) Games
Looking to cut loose and entertain for your guests at the post-trade show happy hour? Crate an exciting and competitive Virtual Reality (VR) Booth for the event with crowd-pleasing Virtual Reality (VR) games like Fruit Ninja, Space Pirate Trainer, or Elven Assassin.
Whether your guests are slicing fruit with their ninja swords or dodging lasers in slow-motion, their movements will immediately grab the attention of other guests as they pass. We pair all of our virtual reality (VR) booths with a large flat-screen TV to display to the crowd exactly what the VR user is seeing within the virtual reality (VR) experience. This creates a crowd of trade show attendees surrounding the VR booth watching, laughing, and taking pictures and videos throughout the event as they eagerly await their own turn.
4. Unique and Customized Brand Takeovers
A Virtual reality (VR) booth is a unique opportunity to align your brand with an unforgettable virtual experience your guests are sure to remember forever. Along with the games and experiences we have on hand, we can create customized, branded, or local content to ensure our clients' logos are front and center in all aspects of the Virtual Reality (VR) experience. Potential virtual reality (VR) brand placement options include:
Virtual reality (VR) headset branding
Virtual reality (VR) booth table signage
TV/monitor brand exposure
Brand placement within the virtual reality (VR) experience
Customized branded 360 virtual reality (VR) videos and experiences
Unique virtual reality (VR) branded giveaways
5. Networking and Lead Generation
The benefits of a virtual reality (VR) Booth don’t end with a fun experience for your guests. Virtual Reality (VR) is also an amazing lead generation and sales conversion tool for conferences and trade shows. From increased foot-traffic to badge-scanners, there are numerous ways that Maverick VR can help generate new leads.
Before your event begins, our employees take the time to learn a quick “elevator pitch” of your brand’s messaging. Once your event starts, our staff ensures that your pitch is communicated to each guest that approaches the virtual reality (VR) booth at your trade show or conference. Once in the virtual reality (VR) experience, our employee will grab the attention of our client to facilitate an introduction with the guest after the experience ends. This has proven to be a fun and natural way to engage in a sales conversation that is well received by both parties.
Looking to add a unique, immersive, and exciting new experience to your event? Skip the boring photo booth and choose an amazing experience that your guests will be talking about for years to come with virtual reality!
