Despite desasters and strikes virtual 3D avatar conferences take place according to schedule.
Berlin, Germany – May 21, 2010 – As a result of the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull on Iceland, almost the entire European airspace was closed in April for days. The ash cloud caused flight cancellations in many parts of Europe into May.
Business travelers had to cancel their appointments spontaneously. Meetings and conferences all over the world had to be moved or took place only with a fraction of the planned participants. The organizer of the Hannover Messe complained that prominent participants cancelled their visit and many exhibition stands remained empty.
Desasters with such far-reaching consequences are fortunately not too frequent. Nevertheless strikes, technical failures and extreme weather conditions tie up traffic and transportation over and over again. Therefore companies are looking for opportunities to be better prepared for such incidents in the future. How can you participate in a meeting or a conference without being there for real? And is it possible to make it feel like you were in a conference room for real?

3D objects and websites can be easily integrated in the virtual 3D space and can be used in an interactive way. You may include spontaneous or planned presentations and send text and files to the participants. With 3D Spatial Voice Chat you have the experience of a 3D surround sound.
