About this Event

Details:

With Stay at Home orders still in effect we have changed the way we meet - or shop, but it won’t stop us from bringing you content and industry experience. We will be hosting this month’s event in AltSpaceVR again. Unfortunately, since we are remote, we won’t be able to provide live demonstrations, but for those of you that have a VR headset you get to join us in VR. For those that don’t, you can join us in 2D on your PC or the Facebook Live Stream. Instructions on how to do this are below and when you reserve your ticket on Eventbrite.

The topic of the month is Retail. The Coronavirus has radically affected how we interact with the normal retail environment. Can virtual and augmented reality help this industry survive and thrive again? Shopping at home takes on new importance and VR/AR’s ability to show you products in 3D and in context could ease the shift out of the mall.

Join us in a virtual environment and hear from industry leaders about how they’re using virtual and augmented reality to try and solve this problem and see where they think we are going in the future.

What's The Format:

The virtual environment resembles a physical space, so you will be able to talk with other attendees prior to the start of the presentations. If at any point it feels very loud, feel free to move your conversation to another part of the space where there are less people. We suggest that you arrive no later than 6:00pm and we will get started promptly at 6:15. Please try to get familiar with the AltspaceVR technology and environment prior to the MeetUp, as we will be unable to provide support during the event.

We will start with informal networking, then host a panel discussion to answer audience questions, and we end with more networking. We keep it simple and informal - this MeetUp is about you, our members, and not the host or presenters. Come and get your questions answered, take your next step in XR Technology.
