Since virtual meetings were introduced in January 2016, there have been a lot of exciting features released and positive feedback from users around the world on its growing capabilities.

With this growing attention to VR meeting, there have been many questions about where the future of meeting technology lies. It’s natural to want to know what will happen next in VR/AR and how we’ll be able to leverage it together with other technologies (like AI) over the next decade.

One area that is already witnessing great interest from enterprises is around immersive co-presence. This is especially for those looking for a true remote working solution or dispersed workforces who can’t easily meet face-to-face due to geographical challenges.

Corporate meetings are often so expensive these days and require travel time — thus employees are usually reluctant to attend these business events; when they do go, they rarely retain any information from them because there’s a lot of inefficiencies in IRL meetings. With VR, companies can hold VR meetings allowing workers to attend the event wherever they are. This leads to better retention and an upsurge in employee engagement levels around these virtual events.

Given that businesses are looking for solutions to reduce costs and increase ROI, this is certainly something worth investigating further as a viable option for their next team meeting or corporate event.
