There are a number of proptech apps on the market to try out. But have you ever tried these solutions simultaneously in one app through a virtual reality headset? You’ll have that chance at the GlobeSt. APARTMENTS 2019 event, being held on Oct. 29-30 in Los Angeles.

One of the features of the events will be a Discovery Pavilion, where VirtualAPT Corp. will be debuting its creation—several proptech apps knitted together to provide a single viewer experience. The apps include Navigator, which is a dashboard that pulls in data such as rent rolls and floor stacks; Enertiv, which uses smart sensors to monitor a property management’s needs; digital marketing app Remarkably; Virtual Key, a smart lock app; and Outer Realm, which provides a tour of unbuilt projects. Users strap on the virtual reality headset and go through a tour of property using the various apps as different vantage points.
