Back for its third year, XR:WA is bringing the immersive world of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and computer games to multiple locations across Perth, Western Australia. Spread across three days, this major conference and public exhibition will showcase the ideas, works, technology and constantly evolving environment of the virtual reality and digital screen industry. Explore stunning immersive VR experiences and technologies, hear from some of the industry’s leading thinkers and innovators, and network with local, national, and international colleagues.
The jam-packed program will feature panel discussions, a Games and Experience Emporium, trade exhibitions, and workshops with keynote speakers that will delve into the immersive and digital screen-based forms of art, entertainment, education and training, science and research, and business.
If you’re just curious about the world of games and immersive, a seasoned developer or practitioner or filmmaker, you’ll find something to your liking here.
The technology and works discussed as part of XR:WA are increasingly becoming integrated into our everyday life – which is why the event includes a 2-day exhibition open to the public.
Featuring our enormously popular Games and Experience Emporium, AR experiences, live untethered VR team gameplay, VR experiences, a 360’ cinema featuring a range of local and international works, trade booths and installations, these free exhibits provide audiences with a dazzling look at the current state of local, national and international play in the field. Meet the makers, explore the opportunity and experience the future.
The Art Gallery of WA will play host to the main exhibition floor, while the WA State Library hosts panels and the WA Museum and PICA will host specially curated installations and exhibits. After-hours experiences will be held at the Alex Hotel. All venues are located within easy walking distance of each other and the Perth CBD.
The packed program across all venues will deliver to attendees an experience and feel unlike any other screen-based conference in Australia.
