Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass exhibition is the first ever Virtual Reality experience presented by Louvre Museum. The Louvre Museum allows the visitors to go through a much more enriched personal experience with the world's most famous painting, while creating a whole new way to reach people inside and outside the building. Virtual reality technology allows you to examine the fine details of the painting, which was painted on a wooden panel, with a closer look and to observe the texture of the wooden panel and the cracks on it through the layers of paint.
 
The fact that the Louvre Museum and Mona Lisa, the brand values of which are quite high, are relying on technology is an important indicator of the key role digitalization plays in tourism.
 
We are waiting for all the tourism professionals to experience the Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass exhibition free of charge in our VR area on the second day, where we will discuss issues regarding branding and digitalization at the conference stage. Don’t miss out on the chance to be inspired at this exhibition on how you may integrate VR technology and more into your business!

It was concluded that the most important factor that will affect the brand value of the country as a whole is the fact that each region and destination has become a brand itself.

This year at EMITT, we will shift the focus from “what” to do and discuss “how” to do it!
 
Make sure not to miss out this case study in which we will create a viable business model/roadmap that includes how a region should be handled as a whole with its architecture, cuisine and cultural values and what steps should be taken to create a brand city with experts from different fields.

It was concluded that the most important factor that will affect the brand value of the country as a whole is the fact that each region and destination has become a brand itself.

This year at EMITT, we will shift the focus from “what” to do and discuss “how” to do it!
 
Make sure not to miss out this case study in which we will create a viable business model/roadmap that includes how a region should be handled as a whole with its architecture, cuisine and cultural values and what steps should be taken to create a brand city with experts from different fields.

Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass exhibition is the first ever Virtual Reality experience presented by Louvre Museum. The Louvre Museum allows the visitors to go through a much more enriched personal experience with the world's most famous painting, while creating a whole new way to reach people inside and outside the building. Virtual reality technology allows you to examine the fine details of the painting, which was painted on a wooden panel, with a closer look and to observe the texture of the wooden panel and the cracks on it through the layers of paint.
 
The fact that the Louvre Museum and Mona Lisa, the brand values of which are quite high, are relying on technology is an important indicator of the key role digitalization plays in tourism.
 
We are waiting for all the tourism professionals to experience the Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass exhibition free of charge in our VR area on the second day, where we will discuss issues regarding branding and digitalization at the conference stage. Don’t miss out on the chance to be inspired at this exhibition on how you may integrate VR technology and more into your business!
