As the COVID-19 pandemic is slowly dying down in Europe, East Asia, and North America (while possibly only now taking off in other parts of the world), there remains a question of – now what?
The immediate threat of a serious illness and overloading the healthcare system has dissipated, but we still need to take all the necessary precautions to keep the curve as flat as possible. This means that, all across the globe, major events and gatherings of any kind are still canceled and will likely remain that way for the foreseeable future.
No music festivals, no concerts, closed theme parks, even the reopening of movie theaters is questionable. On the business side of things, conferences and various summits and congresses have all been postponed indefinitely. The situation is uncertain as of yet, and no one can be sure when and if everything will be back to normal.
So what happens now? Do we completely forget about these important events for the time being? Or is there a way to still make them happen and for the experts and businesses in really any field to enjoy meeting and discussing their brand new ideas?
Well, as they say, when one door closes, another opens. This time, that second door comes in the form of VR.
