Technology company acquires new meeting spaces in portfolio expansion
A technology company has announced that it is expanding its portfolio with the acquisition of new meeting spaces.
Animmersion UK, based in the North East, has extended its technology services portfolio with the acquisition of “immersive” meeting spaces.
It says the new space will help overcome public health challenges and provide a new way for businesses to showcase their products and interact with potential customers.
The company is extending its digital communication technologies to develop the Virtual Interactive Events (VIE) service, which enables partnerships with customers to create a custom virtual meeting space, including exhibitions stands and virtual showrooms.
The service provides the opportunity to host live presentations and demonstrate products and services to multiple delegates who can interact in the space via a range of display solutions from desktop interaction to Virtual or Augmented Reality.
Samuel Harrison, managing director of Animmersion UK, commented: “The COVID-19 global pandemic has changed how we look at the world and accelerated the development of opportunities for businesses to interact on a personal level without having to travel.
“With continual event postponements and cancellations, many organisations are now considering an alternative approach, which will form part of their future strategies to reduce non-essential travel for both health and environmental reasons.
“To support a fundamental shift in client communication we have developed our VIE service to allow businesses to engage with clients and prospects as if they were meeting at an exhibition, but all in a remote setting.
“This is an exciting digital revolution that very much supports the new ways we will all be working and communicating.”
