Damian Collier, Blend Media's CEO and Founder, reflects: “There’s no denying 2020 has increased the rate of digital transformation and the pandemic has forced us to find solutions to challenges that we hadn’t faced at such scale before. More than ever, we look for digital and virtual ways to engage, learn, work and play; immersing ourselves in experiences that can replicate or supplement physical interactions. Alongside significant investment into the space by technology giants such as Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and HTC, this has accelerated the adoption of immersive technologies by businesses and individuals. I look forward to discussing where immersive tech can take us in 2021 with the acclaimed guests joining me on this panel.”

Guests include:

  • Joanna Popper - Global Head of Virtual Reality for Location-Based Entertainment HP, XR Jobs Supporter
  • Karl Woolley, Global Real-Time Director, Framestore Immersive and IA
  • Jeremy Dalton, Head of VR/AR, PwC UK
