The Spanish edition

In this year’s edition, VRDaySpain 2021 will be organized in a collaborative way, creating an event at a national level that brings together various initiatives from different Spanish cities, to promote synergies between the different communities of our country.

It will be a hybrid event that will enhance connections nationwide and encourage local networking with face-to-face activities. The program will divide the day into two parts: inviting attendees to join a streaming event in the morning, where Spanish initiatives offer a common program with presentations and round tables that can be followed on Vimeo from anywhere in the world ; and in the afternoon, each initiative will propose various activities locally, such as workshops, masterclasses, demos area or networking events.

This year’s theme will focus on the transversality of the use of Virtual Reality, and the usefulness of Extended Reality, in general, in many sectors.

In addition, we want to make visible the talent of Spanish professionals giving voice to projects and companies of various kinds, from small local projects to large national success stories. And finally, we will look at the future of XR technology, discussing the role that Spanish industry will play in the innovations offered by the new metaverses.

Some of the topics to be discussed will be the involvement of immersive realities in the video game industry, webVR, digital twins, metaverses, application of mixed realities in the retail sector or the application of virtual reality in the real estate sector. rehabilitation.
