Foundations For Carolinas Review of Allseated During The Pandemic
We spoke with the team at Foundation For The Carolinas for their Allseated review and to learn how virtual venue tours assisted in planning events and booking new business during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
“Using Allseated to collaborate with vendors and clients has worked really well for us. Planning virtually has been so helpful for both social and corporate events. Many of our wedding couples live out-of-town. Being able to work on layouts in 2D and 3D has really helped these clients visualize their events – without being onsite for meetings.
During the pandemic and shutdown, having the virtual tools was incredible. Prospective clients could still “walk the space”, and we were able to engage with them even without meeting in person. It is such a great sales tool to have.
Using Allseated VISION+ gave us an edge ahead of the competition. Our prospective clients could narrow down their venue selection through virtual tours during the shutdown. Through the use of our website widget, these clients could also virtually tour the spaces and get a true sense of the layouts from home. This kept new business opportunities alive during a time when in-person business was shut down.”
Venues using Allseated VISION products can offer clients a fully immersive 360-degree experience of a venue’s event space.

This allows prospective clients to virtually tour a venue and its event spaces, view life-like table layouts and furniture arrangements, getting a real feel for the venue without being there in person to make decisions. This virtual capability also allows venues to show clients proposed layouts with the ability to make changes in real-time.

Prior to implementing Allseated, The Lowry Hotel’s team felt the typical frustrations of lacking the digital planning tools necessary to inject seamless efficiency into their work and effectively collaborate during the planning process. This often led to confusion and challenges, slowing down their decision-making.
