Concept3D Powering Colorado Convention Center’s Interactive 3D Map - 26/01/2018


Concept3D, a leader in creating immersive online experiences with 3D modelling, virtual reality (VR), interactive maps and virtual tour software, has announced that the Colorado Convention Center has launched the company’s interactive map and virtual tour platform of the building.

The Colorado Convention Center’s 584,000 square feet of meeting and event space is mapped in highly detailed 3D renderings atop interactive software, offering event attendees, visitors, employees, exhibitors, vendors and meeting planners the ability to easily navigate the convention center and also find their way to and from nearby locations.

The map offers access to explore the centre’s 63 learning rooms, 14-acre exhibition hall, the 5,000 seat Bellco theatre, 1,000 parking spaces, light rail station, the largest kitchen in Colorado, an outdoor farm, two neighbouring hotels and, of course, the iconic 40-foot tall blue bear sculpture.

“We saw the potential of Concept3D’s platform right away, and it was amazing to see our space come to life in a fully interactive 3D map,” said John Adams, General Manager of the Colorado Convention Center. “We know the platform will improve the overall guest and attendee experience, and we’re excited for all the ways that we can use it for both internal and external needs moving forward.”

For visitors, the interactive map makes it easy to find parking, handicap accessible entrances and routes, restrooms, concessions and more. Meeting planners can search for ideal spaces to host their event, and employees can use the map for communications, sales and marketing, and supporting facilities management and deliveries, among many other uses. The platform also includes VR-enabled virtual tour capability, built using 360-degree video and panorama photos, which the Colorado Convention Center will be enabling in the future.

“Colorado Convention Center is a great example of the flexibility of Concept3D to digitally present spaces, media and data in an intuitive map layout that’s easy to navigate,” said Chris Munz, Concept3D Vice President of Business Development.

There are nearly 10,000 hotel rooms, 300 restaurants, 9 theatres of the Denver Performing Arts Complex and a variety of shopping and retail outlets within short walking distance of the convention centre.

The Colorado Convention Center hosts up to 250 events each year, and has announced a major expansion plan to add up to 80,000 square feet of flexible meeting and ballroom space, 100,000+ square feet of pre-function and service space, and a 50,000 square foot rooftop terrace.
