Stereopsia EUROPE is back, with a few changes (and a full 2022 programme)

The Exhibition area is the very heart of Stereopsia! It is where most of the activities take place (breaks, evening drinks, happy hours, presentations, XR Showcase, B2B meetings…) and where participants get together in-between conferences. (all 3 days)

The XR Showcase, located at the heart of the event in the Exhibition area, will display these nominated contents, some of which will also be contextualized. (all 3 days - List of projects TBD)

XR4EUROPE, LAVAL VIRTUAL, Stereopsia EUROPE, and VRDays Europe have teamed up to foster growth for entrepreneurial, creative, and academic ventures by facilitating the matching of high-potential projects with their scaling counterpart with the IMPULSE Programme. It is dedicated to three verticals: Content, SMEs, and Research. For each one, there are scouting, training, access to market, and nurturing phases involved in the Programme, for a holistic engagement with each selected project. (all 3 days)

The Booster is a 3-day-program starting with an intensive, small-group, hands-on training led by international experts to master the art of pitching, get the latest insights & trends for the XR contents, industry and market, be at the forefront of the XR technologies and learn how to develop and finance a XR project. (October 18 & 19)
