vcopious heads to California for the Virtual Edge Summit 2012
Virtual Edge Summit 2012 was co-located with the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) event in San Diego in the second week of January. Thousands of convention attendees were happy to head to the California coast to network, learn and reconnect with colleagues and customers.
vcopious was pleased to support the Summit as a silver sponsor, and demonstrate the latest features and benefits of its VC2 application in the “Learning Lounge”. vcopious CEO, Ken Hayward participated in the event as an interviewee. His discussion on “Emerging trends and the future of Digital Destinations” was also streamed live to the virtual audience. vcopious used the opportunity to showcase a new feature in its platform, streaming multiple live webcams into a virtual environment for face-to-face collaboration and greater engagement with the virtual visitor.
Visitors were also thrilled and excited to play vcopious’ virtual version of Clue! created especially for the event. Designed to highlight the application’s versatility and the extent to which environments can be customized with the vcopious VCMS, the game also demonstrated the power of engaging content and the potential of gamification to help achieve business goals. Great prizes were also on offer for players that were able to find the correct solution.
Event organizers, Virtual Edge Institute, brought together thought leaders, pioneers and an all-star cast of companies and organizations to share their knowledge. Seminars covered a range of topics; from helping those considering their first virtual event, to evolving virtual strategies and monetization for those that had already proved the concept as viable for their business.
