XR Connects London 2018 Part Of Triple Conference Offering

XR Connects London 2018 Part Of Triple Conference Offering

Here's a friendly heads up: make the time to attend XR Connects London 2018 on 22-23 January.

We introduced XRC, a brand new addition to our 'Connects' conference series that focuses on the inner workings VR/AR/MR scene, at our PG Connects London event last January and ran a two-day agenda that saw the likes of BBC, AMD, Rewind, Brandwidth, Digital Jam, Greenpeace, Microsoft, nDreams, gumi, Resolution Games, Framestore VR, HTC, Coatsink, SVRVIVE, Wargaming and more join us for our inaugural conference.

Encouraged by this successful start, we've since run it in San Francisco (when still branded VR Connects) and, most recently, Helsinki.

Taking place alongside PG Connects and PC Connects – one ticket gets you full access to all three conferences – expect four tracks featuring 40+ insightful speakers who'll share their expertise on the key issues facing the virtual-, augmented-, and mixed reality industry:

  • Industry trends & future tech
  • Getting to market
  • Business strategy & monetisation
  • Game/app design discussions
  • Technical knowhow & practical advice
  • Real-world case studies
  • Success (and failure) postmortems

If you have knowledge to deliver in these areas (or others) then the speaker submission page awaits your beautiful contribution.

The event will bring together more than 500 delegates from across the industry – from indies to established development studios (game, entertainment, education, experiential), publishers, investors, hardware manufacturers, media and more – and as is typical of our Connects conferences you can expect networking options galore.

Whether you're showcasing your game within the vibrant expo area, entering the XR Indie Pitch competition, engaging with the conference dedicated Pitch & Match meeting system, attending the Day 1 after-show party, or taking advantage of our quick-meet coffee breaks, the opportunities to make the connections that matter are plentiful.

But they'll only materialise if you come along. If speaking isn't your thing, then consider an Early Bird ticket – currently great value, particularly as you get full access to associate conferences, PGC and PCC London.
