Welcome to meet & greet & experience the Finnish XR!
Pre-Slush XR Match Up is an annual evening event in Helsinki, just before Slush, focusing on XR startups and technologies and creative industry. Now the event hosts 400+ attendees in the Metropolia Arabia Creative campus at Helsinki Arabia Design and Creative district. This year the main organizer is brand new Helsinki XR Center together with Metropolia UAS & FIVR – Finnish Virtual Reality Association.
This summer we are developing two applications to assist teaching at Metropolia UAS. With funding from Ministry of Education and Culture, we hired eight trainees to work on these projects, one game designer, three artists and four programmers.
