Global DMC Partners Brings Augmented Reality to Meetings Industry
Global DMC Partners, the largest global network of destination management companies (DMCs) serving more than 500 premier locations worldwide, is proud to announce its partnership with Balti Virtual, a leading software company that specializes in augmented and virtual reality experiences. To launch the new partnership and showcase just one capability of this exciting new technology, Global DMC Partners is debuting its new AR brand mascot: Global Girl, affectionately known as “G.G.”
“AR and VR can help planners take their events to the next level and increase attendee engagement. G.G. is just one example of how we can do this,” said Global DMC Partners President Catherine Chaulet.
This rich and highly engaging technology brings new life to products and venues as planners and attendees experience them like never before. Attendees are sure to be engaged and captivated from start to finish through fun and memorable experiences such as augmented reality invitations, reality photo ops, augmented 3-D agendas, virtual augmented gifts and customized scavenger hunts. Shipping and travel limitations may soon be a thing of the past. Planners can now step right into venue spaces or showcase new products, no matter where they are located in the world.
“We are thrilled to be ushering in a new era in the meetings and event space by offering these innovative and engaging technologies to our clients,” continued Chaulet. “We are excited for the future of our industry. The creative applications are endless.”
