Experience cutting edge virtual reality on the Digital Innovators USA Tour

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are starting to change media, creating new ways to engage audiences to enlighten, empower and educate. Yet, few have experienced the full power of this new medium. Here is your chance to change that.

We invite you join the next Digital Innovators' Summit USA Tour to experience cutting edge, powerful room-scale virtual reality that will immerse you and enable you to move through and interact with stories.

The exclusive, high-level DI Tour takes place from 7-12 May and will visit companies in New York City and Washington. Do note space on the tour is limited, so we advise you to register soon if you still want to join. To do so, simply email Anja Mumm at a.mumm@vdz.de.

James Pallot, who recently spoke at the Digital Innovators Summit about the virtual reality journalism work of the Emblematic Group (see the video of his session here), will host participants of the next Digital Innovators USA Tour at their New York studio to actually experience the innovative and industry leading work his team is producing.

This hands-on experience will give you a much better sense of the possibilities as well as ideas on what VR could do for your media company.
