iVvy takes hospitality into the future with Australia’s first 360-degree 3D tours and floor plans for venues


Award-winning innovator iVvy has released the ability for organisers to now experience 3600 3D tours and floor plans for venues on the marketplace.

Launched at the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME), the new tool enhances customer experience for event planners across the nation. The virtual tour tool enables venues to take the next step in virtual reality through interactivity and customer engagement and helps them save time and money.

The 3600 3D tool ensures less time spent in planning site visits and better resource and time allocation of staff that can now focus on delivering great experiences to incoming leads and customers.

“This feature brings planners closer to hospitality brands, but also saves the industry a significant amount of time and money in an area no one else has in the past,” said Lauren Hall, CEO of iVVy.

How did iVvy develop this new feature?

iVvy worked in partnership with 3D Scan and events agency EMG to bring the benefits of virtual tours, which has seen incredible growth in real estate industry in recent years, to hospitality and events. Venues now have the sales and marketing platform to provide the best experience to customers globally.

This innovation comes less than a year after the launch of iVvy Marketplace, the world’s first 24-hour live booking engine for the events industry allowing organisers to search, compare book and pay for function space, food and beverage and group accommodation instantly. iVvy Marketplace has over 1,000 registered venues including function spaces, conference and meeting  rooms, restaurants and golf courses.

Using iVvy’s technology, venues can present their live availability and pricing to event planners and organisers. By integrating 3600 video and 3D visualisation tools, hotels and venues will now be able to give more information to planners in advance and manage their sales pipeline more effectively.

“As we expand globally, the hospitality industry can now take their offering to customers anywhere in the world. In the age of connectivity, we are giving people the ability to make decisions about venues from any location, knowing that it is just as good as if they were on-site. This is the future of events and hospitality and we are proud to be catalysts of the change,” added Lauren.

Late last year, iVvy had also announced its partnership with Dimmi, the leading online restaurant reservation company, allowing organisers to book private dining rooms and exclusive use of restaurants.
