XR in Emerging Markets: Trends in the Global South

As emerging technologies continue to gain traction around the world, it is evident that not all markets are equal. Individuals and companies face challenges such as access to financing, education and established creative and tech markets as they seek to establish themselves. These challenges are evermore present in XR, a new and at times volatile market. Yet bypassing these new storytellers, innovators, and authentic voices would be a mistake. This panel will candidly explore current trends in the XR market in three regions: Asia, Africa and Latin America. It will highlight new support mechanisms, distribution channels, and some of the best companies to watch out for in these regions.
