About this Event
Like Minded Females & Osaka Labs & Alpaca Communications bring you VIRTUALLY VIVID - Diversity in VirtualReality (VR)
Why? Virtual Reality is the new "go to" technology and our predicted buzzword of 2020! It literally makes it possible to experience anything, anywhere, anytime. It is the most immersive of reality technology. However, if technology has a diversity problem - VR has it even worse. We want to change this!
Did you know that? • 44% of millennials are interested in VR though only 13% of females • VR engagement is clustered around 16 - 34 year olds • VR is also predominately seen as the "go to" in Gaming (a market which is more male heavy than women)
And... • The VR market will grow annually by 34% over the next 4 years • By 2021, the combined market is expected to reach £215 billion • 1/4 of VR users believe it has the strongest potential to improve marketing and advertising experiences
So what? In September, we will be holding an exclusive experience and giving you a view into the future. We will create an event which showcases 2 diverse interactive exhibitions, 3 expert speakers and an art gallery
Olga Kravchenko - Musemio Elenas Sokolova - Traytec Enara Nazarova - Flat Iron School
Musemio The Village VR revival
