Reliance Industries will on Monday telecast its annual shareholder meeting simultaneously on a virtual reality platform as well as five social media platforms as it takes another leap in connecting with people digitally for its AGM.
Reliance Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani will virtually address the 45th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on Monday afternoon in the immersive and interactive 3D world of Metaverse, sources said.
It will become one of the first companies globally to conduct its Annual General Meeting (AGM) simultaneously on a virtual reality platform, along with the JioMeet broadcast, which will also be broadcast live on five leading social media platforms.
Powered by GMetri, the Reliance AGM Virtual Reality (VR) platform is designed to allow a user to virtually walk through the lounge and explore business-oriented highlights of the company’s Annual Report 2021-22 in an interactive manner by entering and exiting various virtual rooms. .
GMetri is an easy-to-use no-code XR platform for businesses to create, share and track training modules, online stores, product showcases and immersive tours.
Extended reality (XR) is an umbrella term that encompasses augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mixed reality (MR) and everything in between.
Sources said that the immersive experience can be enjoyed by everyone on a commonly used mobile or desktop screen, though specialized 3D VR i-wear can enrich the experience to a greater extent.
In addition, Reliance will add two more social media platforms – Koo and Instagram – to its list of digital avenues to broadcast its AGM live to a digital audience this year. It will be available for live viewing on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter from 1400 hours on Monday, they said.
Reliance has activated its 7977111111 WhatsApp chatbot for its 45th AGM so that anyone can easily discover dates and proceedings etc. around the AGM.
The chatbot, which can be activated with a simple ‘hi’ message to a given number, helps a user find details about the date and time of the AGM, how to watch it live, how a shareholder can vote or ask questions, etc.
All this takes place in a conversational manner within the familiar WhatsApp environment that encourages greater user engagement, they said, adding that during the last AGM in June 2021, the chatbot successfully handled more than one lakh queries with a high degree of accuracy.
