Event Description

By the end of 2019, there will be 1.8 Billion mobile devices powered by AR. As the XR industry grows exponentially, how do we make sure we are keeping up?

Beyond this, how do we acknowledge the businesses that are disrupting the worlds of product design and marketing, and put a spotlight on the problems they are solving through the use of this technology.

If you have any interest in emerging technology, especially Augmented Reality (AR) plus the Extended Reality (XR) immersive media spectrum and want to learn how you can start implementing them in your organisation right now, join our Academy Xi & XR Assembly event for a night of demonstrations and hands-on experiences from some of the industry leaders based here in Singapore.
