Meet AC Launches Immersive Virtual Reality Experience for Event Planners

January 18, 2018

Meet AC has unveiled a new virtual reality experience that allows prospective visitors and event planners to experience everything Atlantic City’s convention scene has to offer – all without having to leave the comfort of their offices.

Created in partnership with YouVisit, an immersive technology company specializing in 360-degree experiences for brands and organizations, the new VR experience is designed to help the Meet AC sales team expand its marketing strategies for the new year, including attracting visitation to the destination while focusing on bookings at the Atlantic City Convention Center, newly opened properties and re-branded products.

Using this engaging technology, the YouVisit experience will offer meeting planners a clear and immersive view of Atlantic City as they virtually experience the Convention Center and surrounding destinations.

“We are thrilled to partner with YouVisit and make full use of their advanced virtual reality technology,” said Jim Wood, president and CEO of Meet AC. “Meeting planners will have the opportunity to not only virtually experience the Atlantic City Convention Center from any device, but will also be able to experience Atlantic City’s iconic sites throughout the experience.”

He added, “Meeting planners have evolved a new outlook when it comes to site selection and this platform of virtual interaction will make their decision easier.”

Designed to replicate and enhance real-life experiences through rich media, including professional photos, videos and 360-degree panoramas, YouVisit’s VR experiences can be viewed from multiple platforms, including leading virtual reality headsets, mobile devices and web browsers.

“With a picturesque seaside location and an award-winning convention center, Atlantic City is one of the premier meeting and events destinations in the world,” said Gordon Meyer, director of marketing of YouVisit, which has created virtual experiences for businesses and institutions across the globe.

He continued, “It was a true pleasure for our team to bring all the sights and sounds to life in live 360° and VR. Event planners’ choice of Atlantic City will be made even easier now that they can explore it for themselves in 360 degrees without ever having to leave the office.”

In addition, another component of Meet AC’s interactive floorplans is the Meet AC app, which allows viewers to experience the Atlantic City Convention Center, Boardwalk Hall and surrounding area, and can be found in the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play Store.
