9:45 AM - Belfast

**This event is now fully booked**

Virtual Reality (VR) headsets have been widely available for a few years but some still don’t see how the practical applications of VR can support marketers.

To those who work in the VR industry it is perceived as the most exciting, and possibly last, new medium of a lifetime with applications across a wide breadth of industries. These days VR content can be easily accessed via social media platforms, such as Facebook and YouTube. With new VR content uploaded to these platforms daily there is an opportunity for brands and organisations to connect with consumers and the public on a deeper level.

This session will give an overview of what VR is, and the VR industry as a whole, as well as covering best practice case studies of VR being used effectively in marketing and its impact on campaigns.

Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to demo VR content with Retinize, a Belfast based cinematic VR studio.
