Connecting creative industries with immersive technology
The New Realities roundtable is one of two fringe events that we’re holding in conjunction with the D&AD Festival – one of the world’s largest and most prominent awards ceremonies for the creative industries.
Together with the NEM Initiative (New European Media), we are inviting industry leaders and relevant stakeholders to join this event, which will focus on enhancing collaborative communities across Europe – particularly those at the cross section of creative content and emerging technology.
Afterwards there will also be a panel discussion on the same theme, followed by networking drinks and a showcase of some of the SMEs’ most innovative activities which will take place in Digital Catapult’s Immersive Lab.
Attendance at the roundtable is free and open to all relevant parties, including thought leaders, academics and representatives from strategic organisations and funding bodies. However, as roundtables are designed to facilitate high-level discussions on key challenges and opportunities in relation to the theme, numbers will be capped at 25 and we will confirm attendees closer to the day.
If you would like to give a presentation/provocation, please let us know when you register your interest to attend.
We also encourage participants to join as a member of NEM beforehand. Membership is free and members will benefit from a special discounted rate to the D&AD Festival*, which takes place in London’s Shoreditch, Tuesday 25 – Thursday 27 April.
Furthermore, from 12:30 until 17:30 half of our auditorium will be available for participants to have one-to-one brokerage meetings**.
