NOVEMBER 4 + 5, 2021
The conference with social VR experience
With a ticket to IMMERSIVE X, you book a journey into virtual reality: parts of the conference take place in a custom-built VR world. Take a seat in the auditorium, network with other participants around the campfire and dance at the after-show party in the club basement – without physically leaving your office or home office.
Don’t have VR glasses? The ticket price includes an Oculus Quest on a rental basis. Delivery and pick-up will be organized by us.
As rarely before in recent history, our present is characterized by imponderables, uncertainties and upheavals. No matter how long this journey lasts and what we experience along the way, it will permanently change us and our perspectives. For those responsible in companies and organizations, the question already arises: What’s next? What discoveries have we made off the beaten path and what opportunities do they open up for us? Which outdated habits are we leaving behind in the ordinary world? Will there be something like a new normal, and if so, what might it look like?
Decentralized Storytelling – where AI, the blockchain and metaverse intersectWe find ourselves in a unique moment where traditional systems are being decentralized. From banking to retail to education to entertainment – consumers, students and fans are taking control. The blockchain is ushering in new opportunities for storytelling, collecting and the monetization of digital assets. This combined with advancements in AI, gaming engines and mixed reality based technologies is giving rise to the metaverse – a collective shared space that has the potential to bridge the virtual and the physical in unexpected and powerful ways.
