Travel restrictions resulting from the pandemic mean economic developers, chambers, tourism and commercial brokers have to be a little more creative when it comes to showcasing the top features in their region. It's now critical to engage people online with compelling, engaging and informative virtual tours. New technologies make it easy to do this inexpensively and without needing any training or specific expertise.

This webinar will look at different strategies for creating themed virtual tours to attract investment, support workforce attraction, profile target industry sectors, attract film and video production and highlight tourism in your region. We'll also show you can easily include 360° virtual tours, flyovers, street view imagery, 3D rotation, drone video, immersive video, 3D architectural renderings and interactive walk-throughs (like Matterport) directly on your website. This webinar will offer practical takeaways and many examples from economic development organizations across North America.

Attendees will learn:
*How to create online virtual tours of your community
*How to incorporate different kinds of virtual tours into your sites & buildings database
*How to add content such as text, media, map views, and data to your tours
*How to share your virtual tours in different ways to achieve marketing objectives (website, email newsletters, social media, presentations, proposals and more)
