What is XR Connects?
XR Connects is a brand new event for the VR/AR/MR industry created by Steel Media, the team behind the PG Connects series of conferences, Pocket Gamer, PG.biz, The Virtual Report, and the Global VR Challenge.
XRC Helsinki will bring together 500 delegates from across the Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality industry (with a focus on hardware manufacturers, game developers, entertainment, experiential and education software creators, publishers, investors, media, and more). The show will combine a lively expo space with 2 days of focused conference tracks spread over 4 tracks and covering the key questions facing the industry (monetisation, global trends, technical and design issues, industry trends, and future technologies).
While information and inspiration are very important, the core of any show is who you meet and with that in mind we have a dedicated ‘Pitch & Match’ meeting system for free to all delegates to plan their own meetings, after hours networking events plus two dedicated pitching events (the VR Indie Pitch and the XR SpeedMatch sessions designed to connect developers with publishers, media and platforms/stores) open to applications.
Pikku Satamakatu 3-5
