IZEA Partners With VISIT FLORIDA to Create Virtual Reality Tourism Videos

Partnership Shows Off Florida's Stunning Vacation Spots in 360-Degree Video

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - August 22, 2016) - Florida visitors are now able to experience the Sunshine State's vacation spots on a whole new level. Today, IZEA, Inc. (NASDAQ: IZEA), operator of IZEAx, the premier online marketplace connecting brands and publishers with influential content creators, announced the company's newest partnership with VISIT FLORIDA to produce four virtual reality 360-degree videos to highlight Florida's unique vacation and tourism experiences.

The partnership comes on the heels of IZEA's latest announcement that launched the world's first virtual reality influencer ("VR") network. The new network from IZEA gives content creators the ability to produce highly-engaging virtual reality 360-degree content for brands and agencies, like VISIT FLORIDA, and allows marketers to take their influencer and content marketing campaigns to the next level.

"Virtual reality has changed the way we view and share content around the world," said Ted Murphy, Chairman and CEO of IZEA. "We're thrilled to utilize our new virtual reality capabilities to showcase all that Florida has to offer, hopefully opening up visitors' eyes to our state's gorgeous underwater world, unseen landmarks, and hidden adventures."

IZEA is working with VISIT FLORIDA and creator Scuba Diver Life on four virtual reality 360-degree videos in different locations across Florida to showcase the wide range of vacation adventures that visitors can experience.

The following four videos were recently released on the Scuba Diver Life's Facebook page:

"IZEA has brought together a world class visual content producer with a new technology and three beautiful Florida settings," said Kevin McGeever, Senior Editor of Content for VISIT FLORIDA, "and we love the results."
