When initially starting the pre-event strategy phase of planning your event, we work with you to determine the exact experience or experiences you want for your event attendees. While we offer more than 30,000 360 VR and 3,000 Room Scale VR experiences, we understand what we offer might not exactly fit what you are looking for. That is where the custom experience comes in.
 
With the custom VR experience, we work with you closely to determine exactly what you want. In addition, we do most of the heavy lifting by understanding what your vision is and then offering you various concepts based on the input you provided. This allows us to hone in on the perfect fit for your event and give your attendees the exact experience that you want them to have.
 

 

Custom vs. Off-the-Shelf VR Experiences

Off-the-shelf, or licensed experiences, are VR experiences that are ready to go. Whether this experience is a game, competition, puzzle, or a shared experience between attendees, what you see is what you get and offer little in the way of branding or customization. In addition to requiring less time to prepare, off-the-shelf VR experiences cost far less than their customized counterparts.
 
Custom experiences, while more expensive, allow the staff at VirtualRealityRental.co to really hone in on exactly what you want your event attendees to experience.
 
So, regardless if you want a licensed experience or need one that is customized, we work with you to create the perfect VR experience for your event.

If you’re interested in a custom experience, email us at contact@virtualrealityrental.co and we can discuss further.

When considering a VR experience for your next event, you need to make some choices beforehand. VirtualRealityRental.co offers two different VR technologies: Room Scale VR and 360 VR. While both have similarities, they do feature some key differences as outlined below:

 

The 360 VR Experience

A 360 VR experience represents a more relaxed experience for your attendees, as they are often seated at a table while experiencing VR. Such experiences include real-world video of actual locations from around the world, whether a trip to the bottom of the ocean or climbing Mount Everest. In these experiences, your guests are along for the ride. In addition to real-world locations, 360 VR experiences also take the shape of simple games and puzzles. Overall, we have more than 30,000 360 VR experiences in our library. Rest assured that we can find the perfect VR experience for your event attendees to enjoy that matches your event theme and goal. Our team will use their expertise and manpower to find the content that is sure to fit your event.

 

360 VR Hardware

360 VR Hardware

To execute a 360 VR event experience on your behalf, we will provide 360 VR headsets that have been loaded with the 360 content you’ve selected. In addition, we will need access to power and a small area with a table and chairs. Typically, we suggest a 48-inch round tall boy table for every three to five chairs.

 

360 VR Experiences

Other examples of the types of experiences available for your event attendees include visiting the Great Wall of China and the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, as well as flying with the Blue Angels. One of the best things about the 360 VR experience is that your event attendees can experience things they would not normally have the chance to do in the real world.

Things to Consider With 360 VR

The 360 VR experience requires only a small space to operate within. And, compared to the Room Scale VR experience, it also represents a more cost-effective approach for events where maximizing throughput is a top priority. Plus, the headsets are easy to use — event attendees put the headset on and then turn their head or body to interact with the experience. That’s it!

Consider With 360 VR
 

The Room Scale VR Experience

Room Scale VR offers a much more immersive VR experience than its counterpart 360 VR. In addition, the average space requirements per headset is quite a bit larger for a Room Scale VR and runs about 8-foot by 8-foot, though some experiences can get away with a smaller 6-foot by 6-foot space. The area requirements for the Room Scale VR experience allow your event attendees to interact with the experience more fully and truly experience all that VR has to offer.

Room Scale VR Hardware

While more immersive than 360 VR, Room Scale VR requires the latest VR equipment on the market, making it a premium event entertainment activation. With Room Scale VR, event attendees can actually interact with the virtual environment using special wireless controllers they hold in each hand. One of the best things about Room Scale VR is that you can easily output what the attendee using the VR headset sees to a TV or LED wall. This addition gives the VR experience more visual weight in the event space that attracts onlookers, making the VR experience more social.

 

Room Scale VR Experiences

Some examples of Room Scale VR experiences include interactive games and puzzles. Room Scale VR experiences allow your event attendees to move about the virtual world and discover and interact more fully with the virtual environment around them. This interaction and real-world feel is what leads attendees to telling their friends that they have to try it out.

Things to Consider With Room Scale VR

Unlike 360 VR, a Room Scale VR experience gives you more customization. This allows VirtualRealityRental.co to provide a VR experience impossible to create in the real world. In addition, the immersion level of a Room Scale VR experience is much higher, making for a more memorable experience overall. Plus, other attendees can watch their fellow attendees’ progress through the virtual world via television monitors. With more than 3,000 Room Scale VR experiences available, we can help you find the perfect VR experience for your event. And if for some reason we don’t have an experience to match what you are looking for, we will work with you to create a custom experience for your event attendees.

 

Room Scale VR vs. 360 VR

Example: The Mount Everest Experience

The easiest way to understand the difference between a 360 VR and a Room Scale VR experience is to compare the Mount Everest Experience as used with both setup types.
 
In a 360 VR experience, your point of view is from the head of a mountaineer climbing up Mount Everest. While seated, you can look up, down, and all around, but you aren’t in charge of the climb. Instead, you’re along for the ride as you ascend the mountain and experience the awe the sights and sounds provide.
 
A Room Scale VR experience, however, allows you to move around more freely in the virtual world and actually control your experience. For instance, if you’re in for a good scare, you can walk over to the edge of a cliff on Mount Everest, look down, and feel your stomach drop. You can also climb up the side of the mountain by picking up a pair of ice picks, using your controller, and alternate striking the picks into the ice as you pull yourself up. The biggest difference between a 360 VR and Room Scale VR experience is two-fold. First, in the Room Scale experience, you can actually move around in the physical environment, giving you a more realistic and interactive experience. Second is the visual appearance of the content. With Room Scale VR, the graphics are more lifelike and the screen is sharper, adding to the immersion.

The super flexible nature of VR lends itself to a variety of different business events, including conferences, trade shows, and parties. Here are a few of the ways that VR can really make an impact at your next event:

 
  • Achieve Event Goals: VR can be used to accomplish your event-specific goals, including boosting event attendance, maximizing foot traffic to your booth, increasing brand awareness, and/or generating leads.                                                                           
  • Position Your Company: VR is one of the hottest technologies in the market. The use of VR at your event can position your company as cutting edge and fun to work with.                                                                                                                           
  • Create an Interactive Atmosphere: The immersive and interactive nature of VR can forge a stronger connection between your event attendees, as a new, shared experience serves as a great ice breaker to get the conversation started between customers, partners, and prospects.                                                                                                                                                              
  • Make Your Company Memorable: People remember experiences that they actually took part in as opposed to just watched. With this in mind, the unique nature of the VR experience means that what you want to accomplish with your event is more likely to be remembered by your attendees weeks or even months later.
 

Using our extensive knowledge of how VR works, we can help you design the perfect event experience to ensure that your event meets your pre-established goals and provides a memorable experience for your event attendees. While most people have heard of VR, having seen it on Good Morning America or ESPN, few have actually experienced it, making any event that uses VR technology unique, compelling, and memorable. VR provides the perfect way for your event and company to stand out, and our knowledgeable and friendly staff can help you accomplish this.
