* Benny Lauwers, Co-Founder & CEO Viu More

Viu More was one of the first companies in Belgium focusing on the development of Augmented Reality applications specific for industrial purposes. There are still some challenges regarding to this new technology, but the opportunities are limitless. AR will literally change the way we see to the world today. Viu More is the company behind the Augmented Support solution. An application that let you support people smarter and more efficient from distance in real time.

* Jochen Van Lysebettens, VR-Inspirator & Business Developer @ Nanopixel

Jochen believes that our imagination is the only limitation in AR/VR. Last year brought us some really nice hardware, 2017 should be the year of the applications and it truly is. He will bring some inspiring cases of innovative companies, yes even Belgian companies, who have already incorporated AR or VR in their sales- and marketing strategy. These two new technologies will soon be a tool – a medium – which will be an integral part of every new sales- or marketing plan.

* Aljosha Demeulemeester, Founder & CEO Graphine

Rooted in the academic world, Graphine combines far-reaching knowhow with a continuous strive for innovation.
