Carri Cunliffe, Conference Director said, “As VR starts to be adopted across lots of different industries, the event will be looking at what the impact will be for us in terms of our everyday lives, entertainment, work, social interactions, the world around us. We are very excited to have amazing influential speakers on board and more speakers and workshops will be announced shortly.”
Nick Whiting from Epic Games said, “I am pleased to be able to speak at the event, and share what we’ve learned about making VR and AR content with everyone, and to talk a bit about where we think the future lies for this technology. It truly has changed the way we interact with computing: from enterprise, to film, to games. This is a very exciting time to be involved!”
This year the event will include industry specific workshops to give both developers and those implementing VR a chance to explore further the uses of VR and to meet key contacts. Theses workshops will focus on VR in games, manufacturing, architecture and training. Innovate UK will be there as well to sign post companies to the correct contests and funding.
