In August, our VP Karyn Laudisi took a short trip to represent the IVRPA at Women in VR in Oslo, Norway. The event, hosted by Norwegian Business Cluster VR Oslo, was an excellent opportunity to see what local VR projects are being created and learning how women are taking the lead in the innovation of those projects.
Most notably, Teknopilot’s Elin Festøy, who produced Hans Børli in VR and Ragnhild Hutchison’s project, Oslo havn 1798.
Since 2016 we have supported VR Oslo in their endeavor to connect and educate not only local businesses and individuals about the capabilities of VR but also help to open business opportunities with IVRPA members.
So far over the years we’ve attended 15 local events in Norway, mostly organized by VR Oslo. With thousands of visitors Cutting Edge and Oslo Innovation Week were the largest of them.
Several members from Scandinavia but also Spain attended the events, gave talks and presented their work, accompanied by sponsors like Finwe, Entaniya, Ricoh and Bushman who also had participated in some of these events.
Through our continuing visits and the partnership with VR Oslo we have established many good relationships and can bring interested members into direct touch with leading Norwegian companies and organizations, namely in the fields of tourism, medtech, edtech, offshore, subsea, immersive tech and last but not least the space sector.
