Building a Strong Community Around Immersive Technology

2:00 PM—2:25 PM | Room 405

Co-presented by Trond Nilsen, Eva Hoerth and Kayla Didier.

Immersive technologies are singularly exciting as they offer the promise of changing our perception of reality and taking us places we could otherwise never go. As the technology has matured, enthusiasts and professionals have rapidly begun to form community groups where they experience, discuss, and create togeher. This talk will give an overview of the landscape of community groups both in the Pacific NW and around the world, present a range of ways that individuals and companies can derive benefit from being a part of these groups, and discuss the best approaches to building and maintaining a healthy community ecosystem.
