PKL’s Fully Interactive VR Experience Aims to Enrich Visitor’s Hotelympia Visit

PKL Hotelympia VR Experience

Lee Vines said: “We are really looking forward to sharing our newly improved VR experience at Hotelympia this year. It’s a show we love to attend

PKL, the UK’s leading temporary and modular kitchen infrastructure company will be invigorating it’s stand at this year’s Hotelympia with a futuristic VR experience.

The company has prepared a series of fully interactive VR experiences for visitors to participate in. Visitors will be able to walk around virtual renderings of the company’s temporary, modular and event kitchens.

The development team at PKL has been hard at work hard to create a range of interactive experiences for the show, that will allow users to experience a range of different kitchens available for hire from the company. The presentations will allow users to see just what it’s like inside a modular kitchen facility and to walk themselves around to get a feeling for what it would be like to be cooking inside a PKL kitchen.

The PKL team believe that this customer experience is an exciting addition to the company’s service package and are looking forward to seeing visitors try it out on the stand at the event in the ExCel in London from March 5-8 this year.

PKL’s VR experience is just one new exciting development at the exhibition, which is changing its format this year. It has four brand new shows, providing a platform for restaurants, hotels, pubs, casual dining and contract caterers to meet, review and source from the finest suppliers available in the market.

Visitors will be able to don a futuristic VR helmet at the company’s stand, but will also be able to talk to the PKL team about the company’s new Podules retail catering solution, the newly improved Food Cube concession, find out about PKL’s brand new temporary kitchen buildings and U-Select’s rapidly growing catering equipment rental service.

PKL’s Chief Executive Lee Vines said: “We are really looking forward to sharing our newly improved VR experience at Hotelympia this year. It’s a show we love to attend because everyone from across the hospitality and catering infrastructure world is there. We’re also very excited to be able to give out information on our new Podules retail catering product, which we think will change the way catering concessions are installed across the country, and our new, improved kitchen units too!

“To top everything off, we are launching our brand new website for U-Select, our catering equipment rental business, which we debuted at the last Hotelympia in 2016 and has gone from strength to strength in the last two years.”

PKL will be showing off their new products, websites and allowing visitors to experience VR on Stand 1748.
