We've been busy building, and now it's time to share!

We have been working with a number of enterprise clients to make meetingRoom a reality, and we’re finally ready to start updating on a regular basis. So firstly, thank you for your patience!

We have now opened up early access and updates – i.e. we sorted out our email service so we can talk to you on a more personal level.

Over the coming weeks we are arranging one on one meetings to give you a one on one demo with the founders, so keep an eye on your inbox. We’re looking forward to meeting you in person!

Next month we’ll have a detailed product roadmap of completed & on the list.

Looking forward to making this available to everyone in Early Access soon!

#VRforWORK

We kicked off in Bank of Ireland for our first #VRforWork event, an educational series for organisation’s on the cutting edge, showcasing VR. We arrived in Grand Canal Square on Monday morning and got set up for a week (which turned into 2) showcasing #VRforWork Reality to the residents of Silicon Docks.

  • Number of people to try out VR: 130+
  • Results of study with University College Dublin: Coming Soon!

Over the course of 2 weeks, we installed dedicated Wifi (thanks to Dave @ Airfibre for helping with this), set up base camp @ Grand Canal Dock (many thanks to Neil & his staff, they put up with us from 8am – 6 most days if not longer!) and put people through our tests with University College Dublin. Special thanks to David Tighe & Mike Harlick for helping to make this happen #VRforWORK #PoweredByBOI #BOIStartups We’ll be following up with a more in-depth look at how we got on

Dublin Beta

“The mettle of Dublin-born start-ups was tested last night (27 March) at the 21st edition of DublinBeta, with one clear winner: Meetingroom.io.”

We had a fantastic time at Dublin Beta. The crowd feedback is what we came for, and coming away with the recognition of the community was the icing on the cake. Our greatest thanks to the organisers (Russell, Gene, John), supporters and attendees of Dublin Beta.

More on Dublin Beta from one of the founders, Gene Murphy.

James and the gang at 3D Camp were gracious enough to have us join their community for the night for demos and feedback. There were some great talks from John Savage (CTO) @ Actionpoint on the magic of Microsoft’s Hololens, and Jerome & Alexa amazed the crowd with augmented reality fun thanks to WebRTC.

Meanwhile we had some fun inception style moments putting attendees in a room within a room. We look forward to returning soon to one of Ireland’s premier VR community events.
