The Next Reality Conference

29 + 30

How the Metaverse and AI shape our Future

IMMERSIVE X is not your ordinary conference: It’s a two-day digital event ABOUT the Metaverse taking place IN the Metaverse. The event is primarily set in virtual reality and can be accessed either with a VR-headset or via desktop computer.

The focus of the conference is on immersive technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). We’ll discuss and explore the potential impact on businesses and society.

Instigated by vm-people and co-curated by a hub of strong partners, IMMERSIVE X is an open conference that invites other players in related future arenas to contribute e.g. as speakers, exhibitors, or sponsors.

Are you ready to join us on the journey into our next reality?

Do you want to dive in?

IMMERSIVE X is an exclusive event by invitation only. The event brings together experts, innovators, and decision-makers from various fields to explore the latest advancements and discuss the ways in which immersive technologies and Artificial Intelligence will transform businesses and society.

Review of the IMMERSIVE X 2021

On November 4 and 5, 2021, around 100 IMMERSIVE X ticket holders embarked on a virtual journey. They crossed different worlds and experienced the hybrid conference in virtual reality or social VR, in 2D via an interactive live stream, and purely auditorily as a podcast format. Speakers from topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Podcast, Storytelling, Brands, Community, Science, Creativity or Games addressed the overarching question “What’s next?” – how is corporate communication changing in challenging and uncertain times like ours? In their sessions, experts presented the discoveries that have already been made off the prescribed path, those that lie ahead, and the opportunities that these discoveries will open up.
