By 2020, immersive technologies such as Augmented, Virtual & Mixed Reality will create up to 300,000 jobs in Europe. How can Romanian developers and entrepreneurs benefit from this opportunity? What are the challenges and the solutions to foster and expand the Romanian ecosystem?

Join us Thursday March 29 at 6pm for our first meetup of 2018 with expert speakers who will discuss the opportunities of working in immersive technologies in Romania, and how this fits into the bigger European & global picture.
