Webinar: Virtual and Augmented Reality – innovating interactions with your business

March 15 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm AEST

GRID webinar presenter

Presenter: Lex van Cooten
Organisation: Immerse Enterprise

With Virtual Reality (VR) users worldwide predicted to surpass 170 million this year, and Augmented Reality (AR) expected to have 1 billion users by 2020, these technologies are no longer the realm of gamers and geeks.

Smart businesses are introducing elements of VR and AR to their promotional and operational experiences for customers and employees to generate significant productivity and profitability outcomes.

A recent ISACA survey found that up to 69% of consumers recognised the benefits of such technologies for learning new skills, shopping, and healthcare.

Do you recognise the benefits for your business of innovating processes and services with VR and AR?

Find out how these technologies can transform your business with some real help from Lex van Cooten, Experience Architect and Imagineer at Immerse Enterprise. From construction to cars, and tourism to tennis, Lex will explain what the different technologies have to offer across a broad range of industries.
