OgaVenue Just Launched A 360-Degree Virtual Tour For Venues Across Nigeria

Now, I’m a bit of a hermit, so goodluck finding pictures of me at weddings on saturdays, or any owambe for that matter.

But I cannot say the same for my compatriots. I just read that Lagosians spend $120 million on parties every year. Damn. Every saturday, events

venues are packed to the brim with Nigerians celebrating something – a wedding, a birthday, a graduation, a retirement, or even just celebrating

for the heck of it.

According to the CEO of events venues booking portal, ogaVenue, Andrew Airelobhegbe, “More than 20,000 thousand events are held monthly in

Nigeria with the total amount spent on these events in excess of $200 million, and about 25% of the total cost of hosting an event is spent on venue rental”.

ogaVenue has well over 1500 event venues from across Nigeria listed on its portal, and has now given the opportunity to customers to take a virtual

tour of venues in Lagos (it will be rolled out for halls outside Lagos soon). The virtual tour will display each hall from wall to wall, and ceiling to floor so

there’s no need for prospective customers to have to visit multiple venues before making a purchasing decision.

The feature, named Virtual Venue Visit makes a lot of sense because pictures are…outdated and 2 dimensional, and because of bandwidth costs, video

doesn’t scale. I tried it out a couple of times, and it appears to work pretty well.
