THE entire interior premises of Adelaide Convention Centre is now available for virtual viewing on the Google Virtual Tour platform, a first for an Australian convention centre, done in an effort to give clients an additional tool when planning their events there.
It incorporates 316 panoramic photos, built from 3792 separate images and showcases all 15,000m2 of the centre’s three levels including external views of North Terrace and the Riverbank precinct. Visitors can also tour around the perimeter of the centre and along North Terrace using Google Street View.
Commenting on the technology, Alec Gilbert, CEO, Adelaide Convention Centre, said: “The 360 degree navigation technology works just like Google Street View so viewers have complete control of their experience and are free to explore what most interests them.”
“Google Maps and Street View are used all around the world so it makes it easy to access for anyone considering booking, visiting or generally interested in familiarising themselves with the centre,” he added.
Google Virtual Tour forms part of Adelaide Convention Centre’s digital strategy which includes social media, digital newsletters, video, a new interactive website and the iMap event planning application.
