About Nordic VR Forum

The Nordic VR Forum is a yearly VR/AR conference organised by the regional business development institution  Hamarregionen Utvikling and the VR cluster “VRINN” (VR Forum INNlandet).

Following the smart phone revolution in the late 2000s, many experts predict VR, AR and MR (often dubbed “XR”) to be the next big technology shift. All the big tech players are investing heavily in XR. Various forms of wearable AR glasses and other devices are predicted to be “all over” in just a few years time. It’s all about enriching and expanding the physical world, giving people quick access to information everywhere, at any time. The key is really to accelerate knowledge transfer.

The Inland of Norway hosts several companies and businesses working within the VR/AR  and gaming hemisphere. Among those are developers, programmers, designers, creative artists, fotographers, digital entrepreneurs and more.

We believe those businesses are extremely important when it comes to creating new jobs for the future. They play a central role in the great paradigm shift the world now undergoes due to digitalization and automation.

These businesses cooperate closely with the government and public services, as well as educational institutions in the region. Hamarregionen Utvikling is one of the government institutions, acting as a regional business development institution for the municipalities of Hamar, Løten and Stange.
