SAN FRANCISCO, CA – FEBRUARY 21, 2018 –The Bently Reserve, San Francisco’s premier LEED-certified meeting and special event venue, in partnership with AllSeated, is the first event venue to offer virtual reality planning and 3D diagramming allowing planners and clients to experience their event or wedding before it happens. With AllSeated’s 360 RealPlans-3D, clients can virtually walk through the Bently Reserve to see the layout and experience their event through a variety of VR headsets including Facebook’s revolutionary Oculus, HTC’s Vive, and the Samsung Gear VR. AllSeated’s virtual reality plans have broken the mold of traditional planning tools and completely transformed the way venues and vendors sell, plan, and deliver world-class events.

The Bently Reserve, renowned for offering cutting edge technology to their clients, was the first venue to utilize AllSeated’s 360 RealPlans-3D. “We pride ourselves in providing the latest and innovative technology at the Bently Reserve, and are really excited to partner with AllSeated,” said Jim Bruels, Director of Event & Sales at the Bently Reserve. “We can now showcase what our venue has to offer by immersing potential clients in an authentic sensory experience that truly lets them see their event in our space.”

Utilizing AllSeated’s 360 RealPlans-3D, planners can design the floorplan, placing tables and chairs exactly as they would be at the event. Décor such as table linens and centerpieces can be added, replicating the actual look and feel. The client puts on the headset and connects the event to the AllSeated app on their phone, which virtually transports them to the venue with their designed floorplan. In order to see the entire layout of the venue, the client simply walks around while moving the goggles in different directions. This experience transcends them into feeling that they are at the venue and planning it on the spot, which has never previously been possible before.

The AllSeated Virtual Reality tool is perfect for planners, wedding couples, and event hosts by providing a transparent experience that enables them to see their event, and be assured in the planning from start to finish.
