It may be the middle of January, and the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) may already be disappear back over our shoulder as we move into 2018, but even with CES 2018 over the events calendar is already filling up. Of course, we at VRFocus have our own event, our Post-CES XR Review which we’ll be hosting at the end of January. There we’ll be featuring a line-up of demonstrations, speaker sessions and discussion panels for those in the UK XR communuty who were unable to attend the event in Las Vegas.
You can also catch up with all the news relating to CES 2018 here.
Elsewhere in the UK we recently gave you an update yesterday both on what’s happening with the London based Future Tech and Virtual Reality Show, coming to the UK’s capital at the beginning of April and back in Las Vegas at the end of next month is Amusement Expo International 2018 which has announced its own virtual reality (VR) pavilion and themed day of events.
All of these events, expos and conferences in Europe and America don’t mean though that there hasn’t been some VR and augmented reality (AR) show news for Asia. That comes to us today from the 2018 Asia VR&AR Fair & Summit aka VR&AR Fair 2018. VRFocus readers may recall that we brought you news on last year’s event including a report from Kevin Williams (who featured on a panel at the Fair) via his guest column The Virtual Arena.
The VR&AR Fair, which will also be taking place at the beginning of April across the 3rd to the 5th, has just announced a list of the Chinese companies already signed up for the symposium – and it is already quite the list.
Names confirmed to date are: NINED, Super Captain, FuninVR, Movie Power, Longcheng, Shenlinqijing, LekeVR, Deepoon, Pico, 3Glasses, Jamma, VRway, Xiechuang, VR Creative Vision, 9DVR, Gold Hunter, JMDM and REALIS with more to come.
It promises to be, once again, a very important show for the Chinese market and both VR and AR in Asia as a whole and VRFocus will be bringing you further updates and news regarding it as soon as we can.
