“SXSW is an incubator of cutting-edge technologies and digital creativity. We’re thrilled to bring together some of the brightest minds in their fields to examine an industry that is proving to be an early mover in the VR revolution, particularly this year when VR is the buzz word of SXSW,”Rapid VR co-founder and executive producer Susannah DiLallo said.
“Qantas has already teamed with Rapid VR to produce a 360 VR experience of the Great Barrier Reef and Hamilton Island, and we invite all Aussies traveling to Texas for SXSW to our panel session to get the latest insights on how 360˚video technology is giving travellers the chance to explore holiday destinations virtually –and marketers new ways to encourage them to then visit in real life.”
