A bespoke breakout session for developers and investors working in the XR space, with presentations from industry experts on the latest developments in the field of AR, VR, and XR.
SOLD OUT – Waiting list available on registration
As the VR and AR marketplace is less mature and established than the more conventional games market and business models, we want to give XR an opportunity to ‘catch up’ with the situation in a fast-changing market, as well as share insights into market trends as seen by some of the larger players in the sector.
The XR Breakout is planned to last from 11:00 to 12:30 giving you plenty of time for meetings the rest of the day at the Copenhagen MatchUp venue – maybe with some of the XR-interested people you just met at the Breakout.
The session takes place at Creative Denmark’s Visitor Center next to Main Venue at Bryghusgade 10, Copenhagen.
