Disruptive innovation in hospitality distribution channels has been limited to the rise of online travel agencies in the mid-90’s and, more than a decade later, the evolution to mobile booking platforms.

VR-commerce perfectly combines the benefits of online and offline shopping in one platform. It provides consumers the convenience to shop from home and compare prices, whilst engaging with the product or service on a sensory level.
VResorts platform helps users to ‘pre-experience’ the destination and facilities, eliminating the need for lengthy, unnecessary content, and this will positively impact the customer’s experience in their decision making. Hotels and resorts on the other hand, benefit from this immersive experience that can be used as powerful sales and marketing tools, elevating the brand offering and personalization of the product – making sales conversion more likely.
Initially developed for travel bookings, this technology can also be applied to any product or service across any industry and users can experience it from the comfort of their homes. It is the first VR-commerce platform in the world that is making a user’s vacation research experience as natural and intuitive as possible. As the 2020 pandemic propels remote experiences to the forefront, this virtual reality booking platform will help hotels and resorts distinguish themselves in the market; an increasingly challenging task for brands and marketers in the world now.
“We believe virtual reality bookings, and indeed commerce, is the most immediate beneficiary of the Corona Pandemic. Consumers demand the ability to interact with brands in the format most convenient and natural to them and we believe that VR-commerce for offline goods and services is simply catering to this need,” says Vladimir Varnavskii, founder of VResorts.
He goes on to say, “The new norm for us is to continue curating diverse and seamless VR experiences on our platform to ensure that consumers’ confidence in what they are purchasing is absolute”.
People want to experience the products and services with the ease of using their devices. In such a scenario, VR is a viable part of the digital space and has seen accelerated development over the last few years. VResorts believe that they are currently in the transition phase where most of the users are being introduced to VR-commerce for offline goods and services for the first time.
The team has a pedigree in VR stretching from content creators for Discovery and National Geographic to consulting giants such as Mckinsey with all members being Hoteliers thereby ensuring tools and solutions that are focussed on the industry.
