For those who are part of the immersive technology scene, or who wish to become more involved with it, getting to attend the right industry events is important, in order to meet the people who can help move your project along. One such event is taking place later this month, and tickets are now on sale.
XR Connects London is part of a larger family of technology and videogaming events that helps inform and inspire attendees who are interested in the areas of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR).
The event will bring over 500 delegates from all over the world and various branches of the immersive technology industry for a two-day expo and conference that focusses on the hardware manufacturing, videogame development, entertainment and education, investors and media. Four tracks are planned, covering areas of interest and concern such as global trends, technical and design challenges, future technologies, monetisation, business strategies, case studies and more.
Featured speakers lined up for the event include Dan Tucker, VR Producer at the BBC, Masaru Ohnogi of gumi, Tanya Laird of Digital Jam, Chris Donahue of AMD, Rhianna Pratchett, Faviana Vangelius SVRVIVE CEO and others. Also featured at the event will be the ‘Pitch and Match’ meeting system to help delegates plan meetings and make the right connections, and dedicated pitching events such as the XR Indie Pitch.
Over sixty speakers are planned for the two day event, which is planned to take place on 22nd-23rd January, 2018 at The Brewery, a respected event venue located in the City of London and the location of many other successful events from the XR connects organisers.
