As superfast 5G networks begin to be rolled out across the world, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), together known as extended reality (XR), have the potential to become the next big technology platform, and to reshape the way we live, learn and play. With the arrival of affordable headsets, extended reality will transform how we do many things such as buying a car, visiting a doctor or watching a football game. As the technology advances and new applications are created, VR/AR is tipped to become a new multibillion dollar industry of the future.

This is a timely event which will examine the unprecedented opportunities and transformation of industries and businesses due to advancements in 5G and Extended Reality (XR). Codex will bring together leaders from industry who are uniquely positioned to showcase the latest advances in 5G and XR and how they might interface with one another, whilst also providing commercial applications and actionable insights for these exciting technologies.
