Meet us at: MuseumNext XR Summit

Date: 13 July 2021 17:45 - 13 July 2021 18:15

Digital Catapult is pleased to announce that it has a virtual speaking slot on Tuesday 13 July at the MuseumNext XR Summit.

Featuring more than 30 speakers, MuseumNext XR Summit brings together XR storytellers, pioneers and those curious about the opportunities that these technologies offer for the museums sector.

This year, the conference will look at questions including whether the Covid pandemic will finally accelerate the adoption of these technologies beyond early adopters and gamers, to widespread use.

Delivered through a conference hub, attendees will be able to watch sessions live and put questions to the speakers. After the event all delegates will have on-demand access to the talks until the end of 2021, giving them almost six months to catch up on sessions they missed, or revisit favourites.

Engaging kids with AR – MUNCH Museum’s Immersive Journey | Tuesday, 13 July 2021, 18.45 BST

In 2019 The MUNCH Museum, Norway, approached Digital Catapult with a fundamental question. “How do we go about using immersive technology to engage our youngest audiences outside of the museum?”

Join this session to understand how to take your first steps into the world of commissioning and developing new XR tools and services to attract new audiences and engage them in a totally new user journey.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to safely approach these advanced technology projects
  • How to manage the project delivery with XR digital products development
  • How to approach the design thinking for new ‘spatial/3D’ concepts and products
