Trends are an ever present part of events and exhibitions. Technology evolves and steps into the limelight, but many different types can then fall back into obscurity after a few years at the forefront. This can make trying new ideas intimidating, and often leads to relying on the tried and tested.
Virtual reality is not one of these trends. Unlike other trends, which are flash in the pan due to limited utility, virtual reality is not thanks to its new, intimate experience that was not possible before it hit the mainstream again. Thanks to the Oculus Rift prototype emerging in 2010, and now backed up by over 230 companies developing VR-related products, VR is a mainstay showing no signs of fading out.
Adaptable enough to let users get hands on with products, or to truly immerse themselves in learning about the history of your organisation, the possibilities are as exciting as virtual reality itself.
To help you make up your mind, drawing from our extensive experience in the events industry, here's a few reasons why we believe everyone, from stand builders to end users, should consider hiring virtual reality equipment for their event.
Fantastic draw to your stand as several people have never experienced VR.
Increases retention time of visitors at your stand due to interactive elements.
Increases the number of visitors at your stand due to curiousity.

Virtual reality is an exciting, new technology, and people will be eager to try out your virtual reality solution. You might even develop a lengthy queue - the perfect opportunity to pitch to people while they're waiting to have a go.
