TORONTO, August 9, 2023 – Exhibition Place, Canada’s premier destination events and entertainment, will be returning to the 2023 edition of the Canadian Meetings + Events Expo (CMEE) and launching its immersive VR Tour of the Beanfield Centre this August.

Through this tour, meeting and event professionals will be able to immerse themselves in a “digital twin” of Beanfield Centre’s state-of-the-art facilities, renowned for its thoughtful design and distinctly modern approach that prioritizes digital connectivity. Beyond being able to explore the space virtually, meeting and event planners will be able to navigate through various room setups – from theatre and banquet to classroom – to better envision how these versatile spaces can be used for events of all shapes and sizes.

“We're excited to be one of the first venues in Canada to offer this leading-edge technology to our industry. In the same vein as our debut of Wi-Fi 6 at the Beanfield Centre in 2022, this VR tour responds to the need for enhanced digital connectivity across the meetings and events industry,” said Laura Purdy, General Manager at Exhibition Place.  

Planners will be able to interact with this VR Tour for the first time at the Canadian Meetings + Events Expo (CMEE) from August 15-16 at Exhibition Place’s Booth (#1010). Branded VR Viewers will also be available by to take home and by request following the 2023 CMEExpo.
