“AMD Radeon™ GPUs and AMD Accelerated Processing Units are widely recognized as high-performance platforms for augmented, gestural and virtual reality technologies.  We are proud to support Immersed as an opportunity to foster new Canadian expertise in these exciting areas of graphics innovation.” – David Nalasco, Senior Technical Marketing Manager, AMD

We really want to give a shout out and express our appreciation to the Premier Sponsors who have stepped forward to make the Immersed conference possible.  In tandem with Founding Partners Canada Media Fund and the Ontario Centres of Excellence, these leaders are making it possible to hold the first industry-building conference designed to meet the needs of the virtual reality, augmented reality, stereoscopic 3D, and gesture tech communities on the East Coast.  Their efforts are further supplemented by the growing number of exhibits that will be showing brand new content, technology, and ideas.

“ImmersiON-VRelia’s mission is to drive human evolution through the mass adoption of VR. For instance, you can now easily have access to NASA scientific information, the solar system, and the circulatory system; all in an immersive environment, on a smartphone, and at a very low cost.  We’re excited to share and showcase our ideas and technology at Immersed!” – Manuel Gutierrez-Novelo, founder and CEO of ImmersiON-VRelia.

We would also like to thank the over 40 speakers and experts flying in from all over the world to make this event possible on November 23-24 this year.  As this is a non-proprietary industry-building event, all of whom are speaking and sharing without honorarium, and they are investing their personal time to help make this possible and benefit the industry at large.

“I’m thrilled to be joining such a fantastic lineup of immersive technology pioneers and visionaries. SVVR is proud to support Immersed and its organizers as we share a common goal of helping to build a large and diverse industry.” – Karl Krantz, Founder and Curator of Silicon Valley Virtual Reality (SVVR) Meetup and Conference.

We’d also like to thank our promotion partners including Tom’s Hardware, Jon Peddie Research, SIGGRAPH Toronto, Toronto VR Meetup, Silicon Valley Virtual Reality, the Ontario government, the Canadian 3D & Advanced Imaging Society, Cubicle Ninjas, Network of Angel Organizations Ontario and countless more all contributing their part.
