Nominations for the annual Greenlight Insights Innovation Awards for virtual and augmented reality (AR/VR) excellence are now open.

Nominations will be accepted up to 31 August, and can be made via an online entry form.

Entry is open to any AR or VR company and end-user organisation that has implemented an innovation using AR or VR technology, products or services in the relevant award categories during the past year.

Winner presentations will take place at xRS Week 2019 from 16 to 18 October.

The Innovation Awards focuses on AR and VR excellence in the technologies themselves and their applications.

Greenlight Insights, an AR and VR market research, consulting and events company, uses a specific framework to assess entries that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against best-in-class performance standards.

xRS Week 2019 will be comprised of four tracks, covering VR strategy, experiential enterprise, immersive media and entertainment, and the Innovation Junto. The programme will be developed and presented by Greenlight’s industry analysts, who will be joined by top executives from across the industry.
