Singapore Tourism Board VR Roadshow

As part of AsiaVR Association, IGNITE VR helped Singapore Computer Society and Singapore Tourism Board to organize and plan a VR roadshow for their Tech Thursday initiative. This was done by contacting and coordinating with VR companies that have tourism applications to come down to showcase at the event on 28th July 2016.

The VR companies that we had the pleasure of inviting down were Hiverlab, Takanto Virtual Reality, Blippar, UCCVR, Eon Reality and Immersively

Other than helping plan the event, IGNITE VR also gave a short 15 minutes intro to VR talk. Magic Mao and IGNITE VR also decided to collaborate to showcase some photogrammetry experiences on a HTC VIVE setup.

This event was organized to create greater awareness of Virtual Reality among the STB staff and explain how it can be applied to tourism. It also introduces them to the VR companies that they can approach to find out more on how to proceed. Maybe we will be seeing more VR in our tourism campaigns in the future.

Check out some pictures of the roadshow below.
