Worldwide digital spending will hit $8.9 billion for Gaming alone in September. A piece of that pie is down to the Virtual Reality HMD proliferation already well over 15M devices. Within the next couple years it is expected to triple in size to over 50M, yet the majority of general public still have never done VR. The clear ROI winners here are Location-Based/Out-of-Home content providers that are enticing mainstream consumers to satisfy their VR curiosity. This is demonstrated by the high levels of growth, with consumer spend expected to reach $809 million by 2022.

What does all this growth mean for deploying at scale? Our panel will discuss what it means to expose, educate and deliver content to millions of users/players to Virtual Reality. Discover the best practices from experts in the Location-Based Entertainment sector and hear about challenges and platforms in actually what is a strictly a B2B endeavour with venues, parks and operators globally!
