VR Brighton Meetup: Immersive Marketing

As Virtual and Augmented reality technologies become more mainstream, the marketing and advertising industries are rapidly adapting to deal with this new medium.

This VR Brighton Meetup will explore how Virtual Reality can enable exciting, high profile publicity campaigns, how Augmented Reality is encouraging users to share advertising content with their friends and advice on some of the best strategies for marketing immersive experiences.

There will be a range of marketing innovators and expert speakers describing how immersive technologies have, and will continue, to revolutionise the advertising and promotion industry as well as time to get hands-on with a number of relevant immersive demos.

If you are interested in how immersive technology can be used to reach a new audience or just want to hear about some exciting new immersive projects, this event is for you. Come along to network, collaborate and learn from likeminded individuals.
