When 2021 started, hopes were high that the new year would bring new opportunities. Not just for the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, but also for new product lines and designs to bring to the upcoming High Point and Las Vegas furniture markets. However, while many still predict that the pandemic will end this year, the immediate future is still uncertain, leading to these trade shows being postponed once again. 

But for many who have been following the path of digital transformation, this doesn’t represent a lost opportunity. Instead, it provides a new and exciting challenge for brands to face head-on: virtual presentation. 

The concept of virtual presentation can be a bit daunting at first. What does it even mean? Is there just one way of doing it? How can it supplement your physical presentations? Thankfully, in practice, the difference between physical and virtual presentation isn’t as drastic as one would assume. For starters—if you’re good at engaging audiences and in-person meetings, those skills are easily transferable to a virtual audience. Simply make sure you look directly into your computer’s camera to simulate eye contact, and keep your space clean and your tone engaging. 

When it comes to furniture markets, though, unfortunately it isn’t that simple. While good inflection and eye contact can go a long way, it’s no substitute for seeing the real thing. That’s why making sure that your products are accurately and attractively presented is absolutely crucial. And the best way to do that is with high-quality 3D visuals.
