Virtual Reality has changed the way architects and designers collaborate and communicate their designs internally with project teams as well as externally with clients and stakeholders. However the move to remote working has drastically and suddenly changed the way we work. Does VR have a place in the changing ways we are working? How can VR help bring us together in a hybrid work environment?

We have invited leaders in the VR for AEC industry to share with us their
thoughts about the value of VR in AEC and their predictions about the future
of virtual reality for collaboration and design. Our panelists will share how
their companies have responded to current times and whether their product
roadmaps have been affected by the prevalence of Work From Home.
