Weekend Watch: Thin Air Show booth tour

The virtual reality trade show has released snippets of what the experience will look like.
Publish date:

The show allows attendees to interact with brands, media, and retailers in a virtual world.

The Thin Air Outdoor Media Show, a first-of-its-kind virtual reality trade show developed by Gearmunk, is scheduled to debut this fall on September 15 and 16. The event will offer brands, media, and retailers the chance to congregate in a digital world—an experience the creators are advertising as radically different from the "Zoom webinars and static webpages with flat, boring booth mockups you’re used to."

If you're having trouble wrapping your head around what a virtual reality trade show looks like, Gearmunk has released a series of videos demonstrating the experience.
