A brand-new conference exploring immersive technology and digital innovation.

A programme of masterclasses and panels from across the UK will provide an insight into what’s next for innovation. We’ll explore what to expect from the metaverse and how key sectors like retail, healthcare, wellbeing, education, gaming and creative can utilise the trend. If you want to understand these new trends and start thinking about how they might impact on both your life and your business then book your ticket.

Day one:

We’ll introduce the metaverse, the business opportunity and the new ways of thinking. Especially how this could effect hospitality, retail, training and education. You’ll hear key notes from Tom Ffiske as he introduces the concept, Tracey Swales will discuss what this means for the art world as well as a panel discussion on big data, crypto and NFTs and Tracy Cosgrove will showcase how immersive tech can improve training in the hospitality sector.

We’ll also officially launch the Far Southwest Cluster. And round the day off with drinks, music and networking.

Day two:

The final day will discuss what the metaverse means for future skills and talent. Looking into health, ethics and wellbeing as well as the creative industries. Speakers and panel members include Professor in Computer Games Tanya Krzywinska, Creative Kernow’s Fiona Wotton and entrepreneur Mike Morris among others.
