AR, VR and B2B – What could the future hold?

Virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and their use in research are increasingly being talked about and have the potential to transform the way we work by immersing respondents in the real world context in which they behave and make decisions.

Gorilla in the room have been pioneers in this field, applying the technology in FMCG and retail markets and have now extended its use to the B2B area as well.

So what are the applications for B2B, now and in the future? Find out by hearing a presentation from Alastair Goode and Jonathan Barrowman of Gorilla in the room. This will be followed by a demo, giving you an opportunity to try out some of the kit, see how it works, and get some ideas and inspiration for future projects.
