Having grown a strong and diverse community of over 4,000 active members, Immerse UK is evolving to reflect membership needs and industry demands. Developed in partnership with industry, premium membership provides additional member benefits which target some of the issues and challenges outlined in the annual Immersive Economy Report, the most recent report being published on November 19th in association with Digital Catapult.
Some of the exciting new benefits include a listing in The Directory, the definitive guide to the UK’s immersive tech sector with a member listing, a showcase of their work and direct connections across the UK’s immersive marketplace; the ability to discover immersive projects on the R&D Project Board and the ability to find and connect with the potential collaborators, customers, investors and researchers through the extensive network of Immerse UK connections.
We currently have 23 Founder Members from leading businesses and academic partners who will support the growth of the network over the next few years and help champion the Immerse UK brand on a UK and international stage.
Sol Rogers Founder & CEO of REWIND and Chair of Immerse UK commented, “The UK is steaming ahead in the area of immersive technology and we need organisations such as Immerse UK to help us cement our position as a world leader in this space. Immerse UK has shone a light on the exceptional talent that is developing in the UK and is helping it grow through identifying opportunities and connecting the industry as a whole. Immerse UK also has the ability to lobby government to support this high growth industry.”
Fiona Kilkelly, Head of Immerse UK said, “We are very excited about the next growth stage of Immerse UK. Our support from Innovate UK over the last 3 years has been instrumental in helping us develop a good foothold in the industry and understand what the industry really needs to help it grow and develop on an international scale.”
