Wyboston Lakes Resort has turned to virtual reality (VR) technology to show event planners realistic visions of how their function could look at the venue.

The resort’s VR specialists have created diverse event scenarios, including theatre style, half-moons, conferences, gala dinners and weddings, and can also work on bespoke layouts according to client specifications. This is all done using just pictures of a chair, a table set-up, an empty room and alterations in lighting.

Wyboston Lakes says the technology saves time and costs by eliminating the need to set up rooms for site visits, which are often difficult to arrange around on-site events and business meetings.

Louisa Watson, director of sales and marketing for Wyboston Lakes Resort, said: “Wyboston Lakes Resort has always been a forward-thinking organisation and it is exciting to provide this new facility to prospective clients. With this new technology, which is quick and easy to use, meeting planners have the opportunity to see the limitless possibilities of our many different event spaces in one show round, to gain a clear picture of their event with continuous enhancements as we help to fully realise their vision. It’s a superb innovation.”
