Slush is a two-day event that takes place every fall in Helsinki, Finland for entrepreneurs and tech talent to meet with top-tier international investors, executives and media. As with almost any technology event that occurs in the current tech climate, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) do feature in the line up.
While the conferences begin on the Wednesday, on the Tuesday there are several pre-events taking place including partner and investor events. In terms of VR and AR talks on the first day of the conference, there will be David Helgason founder of Unity Technologies talking about the company’s vision in building the VR revolution. For AR, Ambarish Mitra CEO and co-founder of Blippar will be talking about the underlying AR technology, the future applications of AR, and how the Blippar team has been able to build an extremely valuable and growing company in just four years.
The Slush event begins on Tuesday 10th November, with the conference taking place on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th. Registrations for the event are still being accepted with pricing starting at €395 USD for the standard conference pass.
