To get started in VenueGen, you don't need a download. You just need a browser. And a minimal amount of cash. VenueGen will charge subscription fees of $90 per month for all meetings up to 10 users. If you want meetings for up to 25 people, you have to pay up to $490 per month. For 55 people, it costs $990 per month.
Interestingly, the market for 3D virtual learning spaces for corporations is estimated by Research 2.0 to grow to $8 billion in annual revenues in 2014. So it is predicted to gain momentum.
