Experiential Technology Conference & Expo

Experiential Technology “XTech” combines digital technology with advances in neuroscience to improve human performance. XTech products, platforms, and services are impacting $100B+ industries including health, wellness, learning, training, sports and entertainment, creating massive new growth opportunities.

XTech is made possible because of the emergence of new digital technologies, including: digital reality systems – virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mix reality (MR), artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms, advanced robotics, and a wide variety of new sensor technologies. XTech companies are fusing these digital technologies with evolving neuroscience principals to achieve improvements in human performance in fundamentally new ways.

XTech 2017 will explore how XTech is creating entirely new markets such as digital therapeutics, validated neurowellness, accelerated learning and experiential entertainment. The conference brings together the leading entrepreneurs, investors and companies in all these new markets to show their XTech and share their journey on the road to success.
