Aware for All: VR Health Fair and Exhibit Hall

The Challenge:

COVID-19 shutdown CISCRP’s plans to host health fairs in Chicago, Philadelphia, Raleigh, Los Angeles and Miami in 2020 alone. CISCRP decided to deliver some of the program in a live webinar format, but it lacked the exhibit hall and health fair experience that was so important in connecting the public and clinical trial volunteers with medical professionals and others in the research community.

The Solution:

Illumina Interactive, a long-time developed and launched a 360-degree virtual reality exhibit hall experience to accompany them. We created an immersive interactive experience where participants can visit the virtual sponsor and exhibitor booths, and learn about each exhibitor by reading posters and watching short videos, downloading PDF handouts, and linking to each exhibitor’s web site and social media pages. Viewers start out in the entrance lobby, with a welcome message and banner showing all the supporters, and an avatar character who speaks a welcome message in English and Spanish. A Speakers Room provides information about the live webinar, and a Theater offers a series of short videos about the importance of volunteer participants in the clinical research process.

What our clients say about us

“They are quick to understand and adapt as the specs have evolved over time. Being flexible and responsive is a huge benefit. Because a lot of clients don’t know what they need at the outset, the Illumina team is good at co-creating that solution and making informative recommendations.”
