In Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality News

September 28, 2020 – The VR/AR Association (VRARA) has today announced that it will host the VR/AR Global Summit ONLINE from Sept 30 – Oct 2, 2020, bringing together global leaders working with augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies in enterprise, healthcare, age tech, education remote collaboration, retail & e-commerce and more.

After organizing the VR/AR Global Summit ONLINE in June this year, which according to the VRARA had a turnout of over 11,000 people attending, the event is going virtual again. The theme of the fall summit is “adaptability,” and it will showcase how companies are embracing new technologies to keep business moving, the VRARA stated.

The summit is a content-driven VR/AR show, featuring conversations, talks, exhibits, and events led by companies and organizations that share practical and real-use cases from the immersive industry. 

In addition to new product announcements by HP and others, the summit will have 200+ Speakers, Exhibitors and Brands (including Bridgestone, BP, Lufthansa Cargo, Pfizer, PGA Tour, Southern Co, Sony Pictures), as well as sessions on enterprise, safety, health, diversity & inclusion, defense & aerospace, equity, access to education, and more.

Commenting on the summit, the HP VR Team said: “The VR/AR Global Summit connects the global VR community and we appreciate the association for organizing such a terrific event with key players in the industry, and giving us an opportunity to be part of these important conversations. HP believes in the power of immersive technology to improve people’s lives and we are excited to share and discuss how our engineers are innovating for the future.”

Furthermore, the event will once again include its ‘Speed Dating’ 1-on-1 interactive meetings, wherein the summit’s online events platform uses a networking feature that matches and connects attendees, giving them five minutes to connect 1-on-1 via video-chat where they can preview each other’s credentials, bio, and talk business.

“The VR/AR Global Summit prides itself on bringing together a well-curated program that encompasses all aspects of VR and AR in the industry. From changing the world with VR for Good, to bringing culture and tourist sites to homes, training astronauts, producing immersive festivals, enhancing work at home experiences and so much more, the Summit really offers an in-depth look at this important industry,” said Nathan Pettyjohn, President of the VR/AR Association. “Now, more than ever, in this new world, the theme of ‘adaptability,’ and the role that immersive technology plays, VR and AR are important technologies to adapt for everyone. The Summit brings together all of these assets in an engaging, entertaining and informative show. We are proud to bring this event to the global stage.”

The VR/AR Global Summit will feature keynotes, industry tracks, a startup pitchfest, demos, exhibits, networking and VIP events. Tickets for the event are available here. For more information about the VR/AR Global Summit, please visit the event website.
