We love showing off our newest rug designs each market, yet we know not everyone can make it to Atlanta, Las Vegas, High Point and Chicago. Our new interactive virtual tour of our Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market showroom gives our customers and colleagues 24/7 access to one of our showrooms.
During summer market, held July 8-15, we teamed up with Google Business View to create the engaging virtual tour. Google professionals captured premium-quality, panoramic images of our 9,000-square-foot Atlanta space. The results are stunning, true-to-life views of Capel’s latest designer styles, rug displays and signage.
“Our virtual tour serves as a way to show customers who didn’t come to market what they missed,” says Cameron Capel, vice president of national accounts. “And for those who did attend, it’s a great reminder of what they saw and loved during their visit. This technology provides buyers with the opportunity to walk through our showroom and view our products at their convenience – from any location and at any time.”
The virtual tour can be found on our website or by using Google Search, Google Maps and Google+. After seeing the results, we plan to include other showrooms in our virtual tour offerings in the coming months, and we plan to update the content on a regular basis.
Google Business View uses Google Street View technology to create an immersive, interactive experience with 360-degree views and intuitive navigation. The technology works on any Web-enabled computer or mobile device.
