Immersive South Wales is a meet-up organised by Creative Cardiff for the burgeoning immersive technology cluster in South Wales. Our first online meet-up will be held as part of Wales Tech Week (13 - 17 July 2020). 

These events provide an opportunity for knowledge sharing and learning on emergent technology (virtual reality/augmented reality/mixed reality) between tech and creative practitioners and a diverse range of academics using the technology. We hope to encourage networking and opportunities for collaboration.

Join us for our first online meet-up where you can expect:

  • Showcase talks from companies who have adapted and innovated in response to covid-19
  • A chance to interact and share information about guidelines, products and adaptations to ways of working
  • An opportunity to let us know how this network could be useful to you and your company

We actively welcome those who have not attended the meet-up before.

Closed captioning will be enabled for this meet-up.

To let us know how we can make the online event accessible for you, please contact  creativecardiff@cardiff.ac.uk
