The first annual Immersive Technology Conference (ITC) will be held in Houston, Texas November 14th to 16th 2016.
Virtual Reality (VR) , Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) are the latest technologies to change the face of entertainment over the past few years. However, these “Immersive Technologies” have the potential to change not only Gaming and Entertainment but much, much more. The members of the Immersive Technology Conference (ITC) all share a strong belief that these technologies represent a pivotal moment in our history. Immersive Technologies are already being implemented in the Medical, Oil & Gas, Marketing, Architecture, Aerospace, and Education fields with great success. ITC 16 aims to bring the people passionate about this technology together with the ever growing industries that call Houston, and on a larger scale Texas, home.
This conference will include a focus on the business and professional applications of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) technology and solutions. Our objective is to leverage Houston’s unique position as a global technology hub–particularly for the energy, medical and aerospace industries–to connect companies, developers and enthusiasts in the exciting and rapidly evolving VR, AR, and MR space and to showcase how products will enable businesses to deliver innovative and cutting edge solutions for their customers in, among others, the following industries:
- Oil & Gas
- Medical and Clinical Applications
- Industrial and Technical Design
- Training and Simulation
It’s not all just business though, we will be welcoming a large amount of the Gaming and Entertainment community as well. These industries drive innovation and rapid iteration of technology and solutions that have infinite possibilities in other markets. We hope to include key members of the VR and Gaming communities to showcase the current state of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies and software.
ITC will feature speakers from industry leading companies including:
The conference will consist of the expo floor and speaking sessions including presentations, talks, and workshops (presenters to be announced leading up to the conference). Presenters will speak on the state of virtual and augmented reality, up-and-coming technology/software solutions, real-world applications for VR/AR in the above stated industries, development strategies, and more.
