Description:

Now more than ever it is important that we stick together as a community and offer the resources, support, and tools we need to be successful and healthy.

Join us for a virtual roundtable of experts and industry leaders in the Augmented and Virtual Reality industry. We will learn how AR and VR is transforming the way individuals and groups are communicating and collaborating, and how COVID-19 is potentially accelerating the need for this technology to be used wide-scale now that remote work and distance learning have become the new normal.
