Space Channel Futurists Panel Immersed 2016

While entertainment continues to be important at Immersed, a big focus is being placed on enterprise and corporate industries to showcase market viability and to open short term career building opportunities for our delegates. Many of our sessions cover industries like marketing, education, consumer experience design, healthcare, and location based entertainment.

Keynotes include Frank Soqui, General Manager of VR for Intel, Buzz Hays, Head of Product for Lytro, and David Parker, IoT Consultant who is changing lives with VR – really interesting stuff on all counts! Visual effects professionals will be excited to meet Frank Vitz from AMD; the same Frank Vitz that invented the Mystique transformation effects in the first two X-Men movies (among many other things).

The schedule and speakers list is online here:

We still have some limited space available for exhibitors and start-up tables, but you need to act quickly. You can learn about this here:

The exhibition will be free to access on the Saturday for the general public. However, most of the executives will only be available on the Thursday and Friday as they have to fly out before Saturday.
