About Digital Catapult Immersive Labs

Immersive technologies, virtual (VR), augmented (AR) and mixed reality (MR), are revolutionising interactions between people and their environment.

Located across the UK, Digital Catapult’s Immersive Labs provide a network of cutting-edge innovation facilities, the ideal spaces for learning, testing and showcasing immersive solutions.

Each one of Digital Catapult’s Immersive Labs is equipped with a range of the latest augmented and virtual reality hardware.

The Immersive Labs are available for businesses who are working with immersive technologies to book for demonstrations, specialist development, and showcases as well as providing introductory sessions to help organisations of all sizes to explore the huge potential of VR and AR technology and content.

About the Event

The event will take you on a tour of the Immersive Labs on our 6th floor, with keynote speakers from across the manufacturing and creative industries based at The Landing and the surrounding areas of Salford and Manchester.

Join us for two panels discussions debating the future of augmented and virtual reality in a 5G-enabled world, and its implications for society as a whole.

Plus you’ll have the chance to demo VR and AR hardware in the Immersive Lab.
