MecklerMedia Announces Several New Dates for Virtual Reality Summit in 2016, in Conjunction with Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo
MecklerMedia has been holding its Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo in cities all over the world since 2013. This October, the corporation held its first Virtual Reality Summit in Santa Clara. The summit took place within the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, and it was obviously a success, because MecklerMedia has now announced that the Virtual Reality Summit will expand to a global level in 2016, with dates already lined up for several new conferences on an international level.
The Virtual Reality Summit, which aims to facilitate the discussion of the latest virtual reality devices and their impacts on a wide range of industries, has confirmed dates in Seoul, New York, Singapore, Dubai and San Diego for 2016. The Seoul conference will be co-produced with the Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX), which is Korea’s largest and newest international exhibition and convention venue.
“After a series of successful 3D printing and robotics events in Seoul, we are thrilled to partner with KINTEX to launch our latest conference, the Virtual Reality Summit, in Seoul, South Korea,” said Alan Meckler, Chairman and CEO, MecklerMedia.“With our global expansion, we hope to serve the industry by providing a platform for innovators across the globe to come together and shape the future of VR.”
The Virtual Reality Summit was developed as the technology has expanded beyond the gaming and entertainment industries into broader sectors such as communications, business and social networking. The Santa Clara summit featured speakers from a variety of companies such as Adobe, 5DT, WEVR and Rothenberg Ventures, plus a multitude of exhibitors. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor or exhibitor for an upcoming Virtual Reality Summit, send an email to [email protected].
MecklerMedia produces more than 25 global trade shows per year, and the new virtual reality series of conferences will add to that number. The 2016 Virtual Reality Summits will be held in conjunction with the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo in each of the aforementioned cities, along with the RoboUniverse Conference & Expo. It’s fitting for the three conferences to be held together, as 3D printing, virtual reality and robotics so often bleed into each other. A lot of top healthcare institutions are combining the three technologies to create sophisticated training modules, and several companies have come out with software that combines virtual reality and 3D design.
More details will be released closer to the summits, but the first conference of the new year will be held in Singapore from January 26 to 27, 2016. Additional confirmed dates for the 2016 Virtual Reality Summits include:
