There are several applications for Virtual Reality in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry. Users can now experience exotic and foreign locations without walking more than a few steps. Mobius works with organizations who are looking to expand their promoting and marketing efforts by offering 360° video equipment and guidance on how to shoot locations, so that potential travellers can experience the destination prior to booking a trip.
Virtual Reality allows potential travellers to explore exotic destinations before they book an excursion. VR can be used as a sneak-peek device that draws viewers into a small part of the location to which they’d like to physically travel. Hotels and resorts might offer a 360° virtual preview of the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Colosseum in Rome all without leaving their room. This encourages guests to stay in their rooms longer, increasing the in-room spending for food, excursions and other amenities that can be offered.
