We are delighted to announce the very first of our monthly VR Cafes for anyone who is working in or interested in finding out more about virtual reality (VR) in Birmingham.

There are so many questions around VR, so we want to build a virtual community for supporting innovative users in Birmingham – so come along, meet some of the team, ask any questions at beginners or advance level and hear from our two guest speakers Asha Easton from Immerse UK and Elizabeth Khorrami from Retinize, Belfast.

We will also be sharing details about our upcoming programme of online events. After our speakers have presented their work, we will have the chance for a Q&A session, and if you want to continue the discussion further join us from 7.30 pm-8.30 pm in our VR space!

STEAMhouse members who may be interested in developing their work through the Digital Engineering Technology & Innovation (DETI) programme are also invited along to hear more about digital enabling technologies and what STEAMhouse 1.5 can do for you.

Whether you’re an industry expert or a curious newbie, book your place to join our welcoming community today..
