A unique VR accommodation experience. Staying at a hotel is only half the experience. VR and AR technologies provide potential visitors with an experience that covers all stages of the customer journey, long before their arrival at the hotel, even while they are still at home. The space presented at the exhibition consists of a physical hotel room and a corresponding virtual space, thus completing the entire visit experience.
