Urbanimmersive Inc. ("Urbanimmersive" or "UI") (TSX VENTURE:UI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Urbanimmersive Technologies Inc. ("Urbanimmersive Technologies") is pleased to announce the signing of a collaboration agreement with RE/MAX Quebec Inc. ("RE/MAX Quebec"), Quebec's largest real estate franchise, serving nearly 3,400 real estate brokers in its 139 locations in the province of Quebec, Canada.

Building on the experience from the previous collaboration agreement between the two parties, RE/MAX Quebec wishes to increase the visibility of AVU3D® immersive products to visitors of its website and adoption in its extensive network of brokers. In a few weeks, the website of RE/MAX Quebec (www.remax-quebec.com), the most visited real estate website in the province of Quebec, will permanently present a reserved section for AVU3D® immersive visits on its homepage.

"Home sellers are seeking visibility for their asset on the web, that's what the RE/MAX brokers will offer with immersive AVU3D® visits. The showcase that will benefit AVU3D® on www.remax-quebec.com home page will have a significant impact on both the number of visitors and on our sales", said David Thomas, Chief Sales Officer at Urbanimmersive. "This is a major step forward for Urbanimmersive in our commercialization process. This agreement will be beneficial to both sellers and visitors of properties and also to brokers who may get questions from potential customers directly in their inbox".

RE/MAX Quebec will offer its affiliated real estate brokers with considerable competitive advantages resulting in innovative lead generation functionalities.

"Our goal is to offer access to the best technologies to our brokers and provide all visitors with a friendly and high-level experience. AVU3D® technology is, in our opinion, one of the best marketing tools on the web and we considered it important to negotiate an agreement with Urbanimmersive to promote its use in our network", says Sylvain Dansereau, Executive Vice President at RE/MAX Quebec. "Visitors of our website can now enjoy a unique immersive experience and get virtual assistance inside our 3D properties, both for their benefit as well as of our brokers".
