All options are open with Austria’s 3D space planning tool


RX Austria has introduced an innovative new visualisation tool to help guest event organisers plan their events at Messe Wien, the venue it operates in Vienna.

The 3D space planning tool enables trade fair, conference and meeting organisers to define and configure a wide range of technical and design-related options, including the precise room dimensions, fixtures and fittings to their exact requirements. This gives customers a decisive head-start on the competition, and saves time by offering a realistic image of how the planned event could or should look ‘in detail’ and ‘on site’ at a very early stage.

The technology is based on the software of an app developed by the Austrian company ViewAr. “Provision of this service in such high quality underlines our position as a leading Austrian multifunctional venue at the forefront of an international market”, says Martina Candillo, Director of Congresses & Events at RX Austria. “The new planning software opens up several options, including determining the location and dimensions of floor space, the positioning of separating walls, and simulations using various seating patterns. This allows us to visualise options with our customers and take them on  a virtual tour of the rooms we configure.”

Organisers can access rooms interactively, explore them from a range of angles, to add, arrange and exchange furniture and fixtures, and move them at will. Realistic 3D simulations of all surfaces, rooms, equipment options and furnishing arrangements in the Congress Center help immensely when ensuring all the right decisions are made. As Martina Candillo says: “All options are open to our customers from the very beginning!”
