Boca Raton Resort & Club Launches Boca Meet 360°
August 29, 2012
The Boca Raton Resort & Club announced the launch of Boca Meet 360°, a new meetings App, giving viewers an in-depth virtual site tour of the 356-acre Resort, its meeting facilities, accommodation styles, leisure activities and amenities.
The unique meetings App uses the built-in functionality of a gyroscope to give viewers a floor-to-ceiling panoramic look at 15 key points of interest to meeting and wedding planners. Features include video and photo galleries, property maps, meeting space with specifications and floor plans, 360° tours of guest rooms, a live Facebook feed, a LinkedIn Group feature, interactive “plan your meeting” tool and contact information. The LinkedIn Group feature allows the Resort to post industry updates and meeting trends information which can be shared with meeting professionals.
“The new Boca Meet 360° allows us to enhance the sales experience, creating an engaging, virtual selling environment,” said Ed Carey, Managing Director of Sales at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. “This new program takes social media to the next level, extending our relationships with meeting and event planners long after they use the App,” he said.
The gyroscope technology is layered onto a detailed property map with 15 points of interest, each one opening and taking viewers on a 360 interactive tour of the area. Boca Meet 360° also includes administration of a meeting attendee App, designed specifically to promote a group or company’s program or agenda and keep meeting attendees informed about schedules, speakers, important alerts, where to eat and connect with their colleagues on or off property on their iPhone or iPad.
