CONNECTING EUROPE’S CREATIVE INDUSTRIES WITH EMERGING IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGY
The New Realities panel discussion^^ is one of two fringe events that we're holidng in conjuction with the D&AD Festival – one of the world’s largest and most prominent awards ceremonies for the creative industries.
Digital Catapult together with the NEM Initiative (New European Media) are inviting SMEs and other industry leaders and relevant stakeholders to join this event, which will focus on enhancing collaborative communities across Europe - particularly those at the cross section of creative content and emerging technology.
There will also be networking drinks and a showcase of some of the most innovative activities happening by SMEs, which will take place in Digital Catapult’s Immersive Lab digitalcatapultcentre.org.uk/immersive-lab/.
Attendance is free and open to all relevant parties, including thought leaders, content creators, technologists and academics. However, we encourage all particpants to join as a member of NEM beforehand. Membership is free and what’s more, members will benefit from a special discounted rate to the D&AD Festival*, which takes place in London’s bustling creative and tech district Shoreditch, Tuesday 25 - Thursday 27 April.
Furthermore, from 12:30 until 17:30 half of our auditorium will be available for participants to have one-to-one brokerage meetings**.

^^UPDATE TO FORMAT AND AGENDA (as of 19/04/17): Upon reviewing registrations, we believe attendees will gain more from greater engagement with one another and, therefore, we will now run a roundtable in place of the panel. We hope that these changes will provide participants even more benefit and insight into the theme of connecting creative industries with immersive technology.

18:00 Showcase and drinks reception
