Attend XRTGO 2019 to hear from Ben Widdowson, Sales and Marketing Director at Lightworks Design, who will be talking about how automotive designers blend digital, physical and virtual to design tomorrow's vehicles.  


Also speaking is Tom Beardsmore, CEO of Coatsink, who will be looking at what's next in VR and how games technology is being adopted by other sectors to make savings and improvements. Tom said: "We are returning this year to speak about why we think VR continues to have massive potential in the gaming space and other industries".


Carri Cunliffe, Conference Director, is looking forward to bringing XRTGO back to Gateshead for the fifth time: "it has been another exciting year for immersive tech, as people really start to adopt emerging technologies to improve their businesses and to deliver amazing experiences. We heard the phrase "trough of disillusionment" several times at last year's event. This year has seen huge leaps forward including ray tracing, AI and immersive tech combining to see smart robots, as well as improvement to hardware and more adoption of immersive tech across various industries. We will see a more upbeat and realistic view of the future landscape of immersive tech at XRTGO 2019."


Jed Ashforth, Director of Realised Realities, is returning for XRTGO 2019 to guide the audience through a day of exciting tech talks and future gazing. The Jeddy awards were a big hit in 2017 and will be making a comeback for a fun look at the wild and the weird in immersive technology. Jed Ashforth said: "I am really looking forward to hosting XRTGO in April 2019 - this event brings a unique cross-section of industry professionals together in one room, to take a forward-thinking look at all the future opportunities of the latest immersive technologies."
