June 1, 2021 – This year’s VR/AR Association (VRARA) Global Summit ONLINE starts tomorrow, June 2, and will bring together global leaders applying virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) technologies across enterprise, entertainment, healthcare, education, remote collaboration, retail, e-commerce and more.
After organizing the virtual VR/AR Global Summits in 2020, the global ecosystem of VR/AR companies, brands, and professionals is going virtual again, with a theme of “The Time is Now” at this year’s summit.
According to the VRARA, there will be 150+ Speakers, Exhibitors, Brands/End-Users (including Bentley, Bristol Myers, CraneMorley, Mayo Clinic, Shopify, Sony, UPS, Whitecaps, Viacom), covering sessions on enterprise, safety, health, diversity & inclusion, defense & aerospace, equity and access to education, and much more. VRARA summits always feature thought-leaders and creatives from around the globe, as well as engaging live discussions, debates, round tables, workshops, “Ask an Expert” sessions, networking and immersive social events. This year will be no different.
“This summit will bring together some of the world’s greatest designers, hardware manufacturers, software developers, marketers, end users and entrepreneurs to share ideas, best practices, network, and get business done,” said Nathan Pettyjohn, President of the VR/AR Association.
This year’s summit is sponsored by Unity, Lenovo, Healium, Librestream, IO Industries, Emergent, IEEE, Cognitive 3D, Boston Micro Fabrication, Hotlum Powell, Innovation Quebec and Xenco Medical, Northeastern, among others.
Commenting on the event, Timoni West, Vice-President of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality at Unity, said: “The VR/AR Global Summit brings together the greatest minds working in spatial reality today, many of whom use Unity’s market leading real-time 3D platform to develop interactive VR and AR experiences.”
The 2021 Global Summit ONLINE will also be continuing its popular “Speed Networking” event (always a great part of past summits), which will facilitate 1000’s of 1-on-1 interactive meets between attendees. The VRARA stated that its online events platform uses a special networking feature that will match and connect users with other executives and will give people 5 minutes to connect 1-on-1 on video, where they can preview each other’s credentials, bio, and talk business.
Overall, there will be a host of keynotes, industry tracks, a startup pitchfest, demos, exhibits, networking and VIP events for attendees to take advantage of. Tickets for the event are available here.
