During XRSWeek, attendees from several industries will learn about advances in technology and applications that provide genuine business benefits. Over 500 participants will hear from more than 75 speakers and experience dozens of demonstrations during this four-day event.

These programs address current and future applications of xR at work and play. Presentations at XRSWeek will include examples of xR in corporate training, big data visualization, medicine, marketing, design engineering, location-based entertainment, in-home gaming, broadcast media, and much more. Sessions will include panel discussions led by Greenlight Insights’ team of analysts, plenary presentations by major industry stakeholders, and deep-dive breakouts with leaders in every aspect of xR strategy development and implementation.
