The largest event of its kind in Europe, VR & AR World takes place at ExCeL, London, on 19-20 October 2016, defining the most exciting new developments from the VR and AR industries worldwide. Showcasing a wide range of new and innovative use cases made possible by these technologies, speakers at the event are drawn from many sectors including manufacturing, engineering, warehousing, automotive, healthcare, aerospace, construction and retail, as well as entertainment and gaming.

Is your company positioned correctly to benefit from this exciting new wave?

Examples of how Augmented Reality is being utilised out in the field range from warehouse picking and sorting, to engineering, manufacturing and maintenance, while VR’s ability to offer the user an immersive experience has allowed retailers and automotive brands to provide customers with tours around virtual shops and car showrooms. This emergent segment has become critical to the development of AR and VR in the workplace and AR and VR are becoming an integral part of how brands reshape themselves in the 21st century to improve their capabilities and competitiveness.
