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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
This visit to Emblematic Group adds to the already amazing DI Tour agenda we’ve put together which includes meetings with senior executives at:
- Bloomberg Media / Businessweek
- Deep Focus
- Gizmodo Media Group
- Accenture Interactive Content Studio
- Hanley Wood
- National Geographic
- Atlantic Media
- Gannett Innovation Lab
- Washington Post
During the Digital Innovators USA Tour from 7-12 May 2017 to New York and Washington D.C., participants will hear about, see and experience some of the latest digital media technologies and discuss topics like business models, content development and innovation with executives at the above companies.
Participants will also enjoy networking and sharing knowledge and experience with their peers on the tour, which include managing directors, CEOs, and department heads from currently six different countries
The Digital Innovators USA Tour is fully guided and all-inclusive so you can focus on the meetings and networking.
Included are five nights accommodation, travel from New York to Washington D.C., meals, and transportation. Not included in the price are your individual flights to and from the USA as well as individual airport transfers arriving in New York and leaving from Washington D.C.
