The first annual Immersive Technology Conference in Houston, Texas, will be held from 14 to 16 November 2016. Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) are rapidly becoming integral to the way we live, work and enjoy our entertainment. The goal of ITC 2016 is to introduce these technologies to, among others, the Medical, Aerospace, Oil & Gas, and Education industries that Houston is home to.

The primary objective of this conference is to bring together companies, developers, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts in Houston, Austin and across the world to discuss, collaborate, innovate, and exhibit the latest in immersive technologies. It’s a great opportunity for companies who are not yet using or are just beginning to use immersive technologies in their businesses, to learn how to incorporate these technologies to enhance their products and services.

This conference will include a focus on the business and professional applications of VR, AR and MR technology and solutions in these industries:
• Oil & Gas
• Medical and Clinical Applications
• Aerospace
• Industrial and Technical Design
• Training and Simulation
• Architecture
• Education
• Telecommunication
• Entertainment
• Gaming

Gaming and entertainment will also feature. These industries drive innovation and rapid iteration of technology and solutions that have infinite possibilities in other markets. Key players in VR and Gaming are expected to showcase the current state of VR and AR technologies and software.

The conference will consist of the expo floor and speaking sessions including presentations, talks, and workshops (presenters to be announced leading up to the conference). Presenters will speak on the state of VR and AR reality, up-and-coming technology and software solutions, real-world applications for VR and AR in the above industries, development strategies, and more.

ITC 2016 will be held at the University of Houston Student Center South located at 4455 University Dr Houston, TX 77004. For more information, visit http://www.itc16.com/
