About this Event

With technology quickly evolving, so comes the shift in the future of live experiences. We’ve seen this in numerous industries, and the interest in immersive tech continues to grow. With AR, VR, XR, and MR being used more wide-scale, what does the future of immersive experiences look like? For the ultimate experience, we are only just scratching the surface.

In this discussion, we’ll talk about how various technologies are being leveraged to facilitate engagement with communities in new and more meaningful ways, immersing individuals and incorporating our fantastic five senses: sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.
