hotels, to cafe’s and event spaces, you can elevate the
experience of your business with Digital Twins ( 3D Tours ) that
increase bookings, drive higher occupancy rates, and increase
The world has changed and because of
global COVID-19 pandemic, people are restraining themselves to
homes, making it very hard for hotels to attract the kind of traffic
they are used to, especially during a festive season like Deepawali
and winter holidays. But, instead of trying to bring the customers
to hotels, hotels are bringing themselves closure to the customers
by creating immersive 3D virtual tours with eCommerce to reinvent or
improve the overall experience.
A 3D walkthrough enables your
guests to experience your property as if they were really there,
going far beyond photographs and 360 tours, helping your
property stand out from the competition.
Knowing how critical the future is to
the hoteliers, here are seven ways virtual tours can help save the
people to your hotel instantly — Creating a virtual
tour is a great way to teleport people to your hotel so that
they can walkthrough and can see how actually the property looks
like. 3D virtual tours are better than the 2D pictures and
according to the Vacasa* Case study, virtual tours lead to 14%
increase in bookings and 300% greater engagement when you
compare with 2D imagery. Here’s a great example of The Belfry Hotel and
Resorts in UK coming to life with a 3D virtual tour.
e-commerce — A 3D digital twin, combined with tags,
like this Ferguson
showroom in Chicago, is an excellent example of how the
overall experience can be elevated. You can tag things from your
hotel and take your visitors to the link where they can order
food, book office space etc.
storytelling — A virtual tour is not a way to
enhance the experience of your visitor, it’s a way of telling a
story in your style, you can add text, images and videos to make
it richer and more relatable. An awesome example to this is the
way we are working with 1AQ and Ojas art
gallery, bringing alive the exhibition of paintings.
international audience — Land is not a limitation
when you work with 3D models, the entire universe becomes your
market. 3D model combined with modern digital marketing and
social media can take your hotel to all over the world. Here’s
Taj City Centre
being converted into a digital twin, to make it accessible and
functional, all across the world. Tomorrow the entire world
would be a stage for this hotel to perform.
planners with virtual walk-throughs — By enabling
planners to see and explore your venue in immersive 3D, you will
save time on in-person visits and book more events. You can
reduce walkthrough requests by providing 3D tours that provide
planners with a sense of actually being in the space. The
booking process gets a boost as the planners can further share
the space with other stakeholders and can take constructive
feedback, without visiting the site. Leads become productive and
funnel becomes better.
more — Once the scanning is done, you can get 4K
print quality photographs. You can publish this on any of the
social media sites. You can publish to Google Street View —
giving people a tour straight from google search. You can embed
the space in your website as well. You can get floor plans in 2D
and 3D with kinds of seating and details on capacities.
