Hope you made it to Denver for our international Summit of leaders from the Planetarium, fulldome, VR, Giant Screen and themed entertainment communities.

The 2017 IMERSA Summit continued our conversation between converging business sectors, shaping the industry with fulldome film showcases, exhibits, technology sessions, and abundant opportunities for networking with pioneers in immersive experiences.
