Zero Latency at BOSS VR Arena

Experiential Marketing

In February 2022, Cleveland got a sneak peek at the area’s first “free roam” virtual reality arena. Zero Latency at BOSS VR Arena premiered as one of only 11 VR gaming arenas in the U.S. The gaming experience features up to eight participants wearing a proprietary headset and backpack, and they are free to move and explore within a strategically designed arena.

Zero Latency at BOSS VR Arena tapped Sweeney to elevate this revolutionary gaming technology by engaging media and influencers in a virtual world unlike any other.

Going Beyond
the News Release

Zero Latency at BOSS VR Arena offers an innovative experience that’s hard to explain. Sweeney encouraged key media contacts to get out of the newsroom and into the VR arena to experience the game first-hand. The results? Earned media coverage that told the true awesomeness of this brand-new technology.

“Often VR is relegated to a tiny room in an amusement center or a solitary space at home. This is a bit different.”

“Most people have some idea of virtual reality, but they’ve never been able to experience it without a group and without wires… You can wander and walk through that space unimpeded. The system immerses you completely into the game.”
Cleveland Business Journal

“It’s a ‘free roam arena scale virtual reality battle room’ where you can test your skills. Fox 8’s Kenny Crumpton put on a pair of virtual goggles and gave it a try.”

“Ever try to play a VR game while moving around a small room trying to avoid the family pet? Or the obstacle course that chairs, tables and lamps are? (Try not to stub your toe). Plus, we’ve all seen the videos of people letting their friends use a VR headset for the first time and it somehow always ends up with a broken television or computer monitor. Zero Latency has a solution for that. And it’s much bigger than your living room or office.”

“There are very few times in life when you get to experience things for the first time.”

I appreciate the care and thoughtfulness with which Sweeney has represented us. It is unique for me to hand over our reputation to outside support, but I felt immediately comfortable doing so with Sweeney.”
