Are you ready to look into the future? If you are, then settle in for the journey. Scenes from futuristic movies are no longer fiction, they are slowly becoming a reality. Whether it's VR dominating the tech headlines, or PokemonGo becoming an overnight AR sensation, this technological shift is ushering in a new era where content is no longer flat, it's now 3D/360, virtual and holographic. We are no longer just viewers, we are becoming participants and Hispanic audiences are already starting to engage with this new reality.

As VR and AR continue to mature the need for valuable content that is culturally relevant will only skyrocket. 

This technological shift is set to impact all industries and verticals and will bring about great opportunities for brands, businesses, communicators and content creators. During this session, you will hear from some of the most influential Latinos in the VR/AR space on how this new reality is impacting science, education, journalism, travel, television, marketing, and entertainment. If you're ready to journey into the future join us for one of the most thought-provoking town hall sessions ever held at Hispanicize.
