Austrade Mission to Seoul VR/AR Expo 2019; optional Taiwan and Japan Programs

About event:

In May-June 2019, Austrade is hosting the first VR/AR mission to Korea with optional Taiwan and Japan programs. This mission will assist Australian companies to capitalise on Asia’s impressive VR/AR ecosystem.

As VR/AR develops, Asia is forecast to be a global leader in growth and innovation.

The Korean VR market grew from US$1.1 billion in 2016 to US$1.3 billion in 2017 and is forecast to reach a staggering US$5.2 billion by 2020.

This mission will provide Australian participants the opportunity to showcase at Asia’s largest VR/AR Expo – Seoul VR/AR Expo 2019 with delegate passes free of charge, a shared booth and full-access to conference programing, on 30-31 May.

This is your chance to establish partnership opportunities with major Korean VR/ AR platform providers and investors.

Austrade will also arrange a supplementary day of programming in Korea to expose you to the ecosystem and its key players and opportunities, including VR theme parks and arcades seeking Australian content.

Additional programing in Taiwan (27-28 May) and Japan (3 June) will allow delegates to access the burgeoning startup ecosystem in Japan’s innovative tech ecosystem, and the opportunities presented by Taiwan’s innovation agenda and position as a world leader in immersive technologies. More information on these additional options available in the mission brochure.
