ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 16, 2021) – Focused on supporting its customers in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Visit Anaheim, the official destination marketing organization for Anaheim, today released a new immersive virtual experience for meeting professionals to tour Anaheim and the Anaheim Convention Center in first-person.
With meeting professionals looking ahead and actively planning for future in-person events, this new tool supports Visit Anaheim’s ability to book and generate upcoming business for the Anaheim Convention Center. From the Anaheim Convention Center’s walkable campus to its close proximity to Disneyland Resort to its nearby airports, meeting professionals are able to see firsthand what makes Anaheim a premiere meeting destination.
“During this challenging time, our organization continues to quickly adapt to best support our clients by providing them with a new way to experience Anaheim,” said Jay Burress, president & CEO, Visit Anaheim. “This new tool helps meeting professionals visualize and customize their Anaheim event, while taking the guesswork out of trying to plan an event remotely.”
Created by Xplorit, this tool is an invaluable resource to meeting professionals providing them with everything they need right at their fingertips. From being able to view various meetings and ballroom arrangements to understanding the walkability of the area to seeing what the Grand Plaza looks like activated with a food truck event, meeting professionals are able to see the ins and outs of what makes Anaheim so unique.
“Our sales and services teams are continuing to find new ways to connect with our clients by reimagining how they experience Anaheim,” said Junior Tauvaa, chief sales officer, Visit Anaheim. “Until we are able to walk meeting professionals around our Campus and Convention Center in-person, this new technology will help us bridge the gap.”
In the first phase of this new tool, meeting professionals are able to access and tour the following local attractions and venues to better understand what an attendees’ Anaheim experience may entail:
- Anaheim Convention Center
- Anaheim Packing House
- Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC)
- Angel Stadium
- Disneyland Resort
- Honda Center
- John Wayne Airport
- Modern Times Leisuretown
