(press release)

The Crans-Montana Forum becomes the Crans-Montana World XR Forum.

The World XR Association is pleased to announce the World XR Forum that it is organizing from September 5th-9th 2019 in Crans-Montana. After having designed the new standard for the exhibition of VR works in 2016, established the first Virtual Reality market in Switzerland in 2017, hosted VR artists in residence in 2018 and welcomed its first international company specialising in 360° lightfield capture in 2019, Crans-Montana is consolidating its position as the Swiss leader in XR* by entrusting its annual summit on immersive realities and new technologies to the World XR Association based in Crans-Montana.

The primary mission of the World XR Forum is to connect actors from the economic, scientific, academic and creative spheres of virtual/augmented/mixed reality (VR/AR/MR) and new technologies by encouraging collaboration at the crossroad of various industries. The forum aims to support and promote the innovative potential of XR in Switzerland by introducing the best immersive content to professionals and democratizing their access to the general public.
