Towards the end of February ARVRtech experienced Paris as the innovation hub thanks to the global event and B2B platform called Paris region entreprises.
This niche, high level networking event was tailor-made to the needs of companies that exclusively develop AR and VR solutions.
ARVRtech was in a company of 12 startups and SMEs from 8 countries: Belgium, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, UK, US. All those companies have a laser focus on the implementation of VR and AR, such as Blippar, Aumenta Solutions, Big Boy Systems, DAQRI, VividQ and some more.
All these startup founders presented their solutions to 36 decision makers from 23 large corporations who want to implement innovation in their big ecosystems: Accenture, Air France, Air France Industries, Alibaba Cloud, Cisco, 3D Experience Lab – Dassault Systemes, EDF, ENGIE, GRDF, Figaro Media, Fujitsu, HSBC, Oracle, Orange, Otium Venture, Panasonic, Servier, Sanofi, SAP, SNCF, Ubisoft, Valeo, Vinci.
Our company was selected to pitch its solution among registered startups, while our co-founder Boris Pokric had a chance to present our company as well as its innovative AI based VR platform for education and enterprise training called Immersive4Learning.
Another benefit for ARVRtech at this event in Paris was that we could meet face-to-face big businesses that pursue greater innovation in their operations and teams. Therefore, we received valuable feedback for our Immersive4Learning prototype and already used solutions in industrial trainings.
Boris was very satisfied with the quality of organization at Paris region enterprises because it raised the bar B2B meetings are conducted in still a novel area: AR and VR; how expertise is exchanged and how partnerships can be formed. He had a whole day of one-to-one meetings with international companies interested in AR and VR solutions and now it is about synergizing with other departments of the company: engineering and marketing how clients’ visions and requirements can be turned into reality.
Due to a significant number of participants from the world of startups and large companies, more than 155 one-to-one meetings were conducted.
ARVRtech is delighted about the feedback we received from the industry professionals we met.
Statistics that was mentioned to us during the program several times Statistics that was mentioned to us during the program several times shows the practicality of doing business in France: companies that work with wider Paris region have the access to 500 million consumers on the European market; 150.000 people are involved in research in more than 1000 labs (which in the field of AR and VR can be particularly important), whereas some of the most compelling R&D tax incentives are in this part of Europe.
Therefore, we are on the verge of starting new projects and consider French companies as ready for the implementation of VR and AR in their business systems, especially for training purposes and for factory systems.
