Here we go again: On 5th November, a new edition of BtT will take place in the revered hall on campus Westend of the Goethe University in Frankfurt. This time everything will revolve around Cross Reality (XR).
XR has the potential to change our world, as we experience it today, considerably in the future. This not only affects typical consumer sectors such as gaming and entertainment, retail and e-commerce or tourism, but also sectors that one wouldn’t necessarily immediately think of, such as industry & production or education and knowledge transfer.
To show you the variety of XR technologies, we have invited interesting speakers.
In addition to the previous application areas of XR technology, they will talk about the pain points as well as the possibilities of making this technology accessible as an experience for users across different platforms. Afterwards 3spin, beebird and flying shapes will pitch. At the end there will be the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with all other participants.
It’s best to register now!
We are already looking forward to your numerous appearance.
