SAN FRANCISCO – August 1, 2018 – The organizers of VRX 2018 have announced the first wave of speakers for their 4th annual conference and expo in San Francisco this December 6-7.
Focused on filtering through the hype around VR, AR and immersive tech, the line-up includes senior execs from Google, HTC, Microsoft, General Motors, Paramount Pictures, HP, Survios, Nestlé, DHL and others – with many more to be announced.
VRX has always prided itself on providing the highest quality content and networking, designed to connect the top minds in the industry and get to the core of the challenges and opportunities in bringing VR and AR to mass adoption. To see the first speakers announced, go to www.vr-intelligence.com/vrx
The agenda will cover both consumer and enterprise VR, including gaming, film, TV, AEC, automotive, manufacturing, retail, healthcare and beyond; with the underlying aim to go beyond the hype of XR to understand where the industry stands and what’s needed to move it forward.
Alongside the conference, the expo will feature the likes of Diamond Sponsors HP plus Siemens, Zerolight, Almalence and over 40 other leading immersive tech companies showcasing the latest tech and content solutions to provide real business value.
In addition to the main agenda, 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.
VRX lead organizer, Pete Carkeek, says, “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.”
He adds, “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.”
Early rate tickets are still available at www.vr-intelligence.com/vrx, and there are still some opportunities available for sponsors and exhibitors to get involved.
