With the month of March 2018 just getting started, here’s an update on LucidWeb’s road plans. We look forward continuing evangelising the WebXR standard either via hosting a booth, a meetup, doing a keynote or participating in an expert panel. We continue our quest to help publishers/ storytellers in VR/AR (360° video, images or CGI) that wish to leverage their content creation process and/or distribution via WebVR or WebAR (of course you may PM us if you are interested to team up!).
Starting in March
Tech Startup Day (15th of March 2018 — Brussels): LucidWeb is hosting a booth at Belgium’s leading startup conference. The event brings together a diverse group of top experts, creative visionaries and opinion leaders that cover actual topics from startup cities and access to markets to co-creation and the art of pitching.
The 25th Prague International Film Festival (19 & 20th of March, Czech Republic): Co-founder Leen is invited to discuss the European VR/AR Industry Landscape.

May and our business trip to LA
VRLA (4 & 5th of May, LA/USA): Attending the VRLA conference back in the summer of 2016 marked the start of co-founder Leen’s entrepreneurial journey in XR. This year, LucidWeb is excited to announce to host a booth at the largest immersive technology expo. The event is showcasing not only the cutting edge in XR tech, but also the future for creation, sharing and storytelling of XR entertainment.
