Last month VR Intelligence held a free webinar featuring Google, HTC and SuperData to discuss the latest trends, current challenges and biggest opportunities in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). In December is the organisations main event, the VRX Conference & Expo in San Francisco, and today the first batch of speakers has been announced.
With an agenda that aims to cover both consumer and enterprise VR, including gaming, film, TV, AEC, automotive, manufacturing, retail, healthcare and beyond, the line-up includes senior execs from Google, HTC, Microsoft, General Motors, Paramount Pictures, HP, Survios, Nestlé and DHL, with many more to be announced.
“In the four years we’ve been running the VRX event, XR has moved forward tremendously. But at the same time, the hype around immersive tech has been crazy, with massive expectations and predictions often clouding what’s really happening,” said VRX lead organizer, Pete Carkeek in a statement. “In order to be clear on where the real challenges and opportunities lie, we need to be clear on what’s real and what’s hype. So, alongside our key industry partners and the world’s leading experts, we’ll be aiming to filter through the noise and really push XR closer to its full potential.”
Now in its fourth year VRX 2018 isn’t just about talks and panels discussing the latest trends and whats going to happen in the future. The expo will feature the likes of Diamond Sponsors HP plus Siemens, Zerolight, Almalence and over 40 other immersive tech companies showcasing the latest tech and content solutions to attendees.
VRX 2018 will take place from 6th – 7th December 2018, Hilton Union Square, San Francisco. Early rate tickets are still available for a limited time on the main website and this year will also see greater opportunities for start-ups, with 1-day startup passes offering a full-day track on investments, scaling and building towards success. VRFocus will continue its coverage of VRX 2018, reporting back with any further updates.
