During the event day, the audience has the chance to experience three project demos. Prior to the Art & Tech Gala’s stage program, we welcome you to join two of the pre-event demos which take place in the Experimental Studio and in the Visualisation Hub, a 360-degree projection area using Igloo Vision technology for a shared immersive experience. Please make sure to register for the pre-event demos separately. The third demo takes place in the VR Hub, next to the Hybrid stage, after the stage presentations.
