5G is not just an evolutionary upgrade it is a revolutionary technology that will eliminate the bounds of access, bandwidth, performance, and latency limitations on connectivity worldwide. With the potential for 5G networks to provide anytime and anywhere connectivity, the number of applications will be quite large.
How to “unlock and maximize” the development potential of extended reality? It’s a question that many in the industry have asked themselves.
The global Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR and AR) market is set to grow exponentially, between 2020 and 2022, worldwide spending on VR and AR is forecasted to expand at an average annual growth rate of 72%. Europe is actually responsible for a fifth of the global VR and AR market, one of the major players along with Asia and North America.

VRDays Europe 2020 – The New Horizons Edition explores how immersive technologies shape the world of tomorrow!
In ancient Rome, the lustrum was the name for the sacrifice and celebration of a five-year period. It was a moment to unite, reflect and look ahead. With the 5th edition of VR Days, we will do just that. This is why we call VRD Europe 2019 the Lustrum Edition.
VRD Europe is a 3-day conference and exhibition on Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality content, creativity, and innovation. Drive business forward with leaders in XR, and celebrate innovation in science and the arts with keynotes, expert sessions, workshops, and seminars with 140+ expert speakers.

VRDays Europe 2020 – 4th, 5th and 6th November Amsterdam
EuroVR is a European Association with more than 10 years of experience which provides a network for all those interested in all interactive technologies (VR/AR/MR) to meet, discuss, and promote all topics related to XR technologies. Establishing connections with National Associations and Chapters in relevant fields, promoting research excellence as well as support the creation of Special Interest Groups in specific field. As you know, EuroVR’s goal has always been to create an International Network to establish virtuous circles of collaborations among those operating in the interactive technologies area.
Right now we are currently going through an unprecedented crisis, it is necessary to adapt and modernize to keep up with the times, and it is more essential than ever that we join forces to overcome it together. In the wake of these changes, also our Association needs to evolve and adapt to the current trends, for these reasons we thought it is necessary a rebranding of EuroVR. We are very fond of the name that we have used until now and that has accompanied us for many years, but now it is necessary that our brand also reflects what we do and who we are. We don’t want our brand to be limited only to VR technologies (although in the full name we have since the beginning both VR and AR) but we want to communicate that we include all XR, also looking to the future intelligent interactive technologies.
EuroVR is a media partner of the event World Class Corporate Extended Reality 2019.
