The event is meant as a taster to introduce these standard and emerging technologies, to learn about their potential and also the limitations within typical SME budget capabilities.

This three-hour workshop is designed as a beginners' introduction to these technologies. The aim is to introduce delegates to each technology, and demonstrate how, with a minimum of investment, they might be used by SMEs to develop innovative processes in 3D visualisation, information sharing, and marketing.

No formal qualifications are needed, and you will not be required to bring any specialist equipment. However, a smartphone or tablet that can access the internet would be beneficial for a full hands-on experience.
