About Nordic VR Forum

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

Following the smart phone revolution in the late 2000s many experts predict VR, AR and MR (often dubbed as “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 everywhere in just a few years of time. It’s all about enriching and expanding the physical world, giving people quick access to information everywhere, at any time. Accelerating knowledge transfer is the key.

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, photographers, 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 is currently experiencing due to digitization and automation.

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