Microsoft, Sixense, Accenture, HP and Pico are among the virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) innovators demonstrating during the Solutions Showcase at xRS Week 2019.

From 16 to 18 October at xRS Week 2019 in San Francisco, top solution providers, investors, and enterprise users of extended reality (XR) technologies will share winning strategies and technology breakthroughs.

The Solutions Showcase will give the hundreds of business leaders attending xRS Week the opportunity to experience the technologies and solutions that will be adopted in the near future.

Headlining the Solutions Showcase this year are Microsoft, Accenture, HP and Sixense. They will be joined by Varjo, Pico, Blend Media, Varwin, and soon-to-be-confirmed other top companies.

The Solutions Showcase is both a demo centre and a meeting spot, where xRS Week attendees will see the latest in head-mounted displays, development tools and applications.

The showcase is designed to facilitate engagement with solutions providers to discuss specific challenges. As part of xRS Week’s mandate to enable high-level conversations, this is a location where deals and relationships will be forged over coffee.

Amir Rubin, chief executive officer at Sixense, said: “Sixense’s mission is to provide immersive products that improve lives. xRS gives us the ability to share our strategies and beliefs while listening and learning from other decision makers.”

“xRS Week 2019 is an important event for us as it brings together C-level executives in an environment that fosters open sharing and discussion of the future trends that will shape our world.” 

Clifton Dawson, chief executive officer of Greenlight Insights, said: “We are excited to welcome Sixense to the growing line-up of thought leaders featured at xRS Week 2019.”

“xR is a critical, and rapidly growing technology in diverse enterprises from entertainment to workforce training. We have assembled a world-class roster of speakers and sponsors in a robust program that business leaders will find extremely valuable as they develop their strategies and roadmaps for 2020 and beyond.”

In addition to the Solutions Showcase, xRS Week will present four focused tracks covering VR/AR strategies and applications: the Experiential Enterprise, Immersive Media and Entertainment, the Innovation Junto, an open innovation forum for disruptive, leading-edge technologies, and new this year, the Immersive Healthcare Symposium.

Greenlight Insights will also recognise this year’s top innovators in xR with the presentation of the prestigious Greenlight Insights Innovation Awards for VR/AR excellence.
