Frequently asked questions

What is AIXR?

AIXR, The Academy of International Extended Reality, is a dedicated not-for-profit organisation that exists to support individuals and companies of all sizes as the international trade body for immersive technology industries. We proactively support, inspire, and enable innovators, remove barriers to entry and connect a diverse collection of trades together.

How will AIXR work to support the immersive technology industry?

AIXR will be working to support the industry through the Insights initiative. Insights is split into five different areas: EDU, Case Studies, Live Events, Research, and Podcasts. Insights EDU is a series of articles from some of the brightest minds in XR that aims to educate our audience through thought-provoking and informative content. Insights Case Studies are in-depth articles on the behind the scenes work that goes into the most critically acclaimed, award-winning projects in immersive technology. 

Members will have exclusive opportunities to provide articles for Insights EDU which will then be published and promoted by AIXR.

What offers and perks can AIXR provide?

AIXR provides a variety of perks to the organisation’s membership base through our approved service providers. This includes discounts on a range of services ranging from legal advice, vacancy posting on job boards, and consultancy services to exclusive discounts on immersive technology focused events. There’s a better way to grow; joining AIXR is only the first step.

What companies are members of AIXR?

The AIXR membership base is always expanding with the likes of smaller independent studios and huge multinational corporations already on board. AIXR is committed to overseeing the development of companies of all sizes and our pricing structure reflects our goal of being both inclusive and accessible regardless of where a company is along its business journey.

Also take a look at our advisory panels to get an understanding of the kind of companies that steer the direction of AIXR.

Do members receive discounts on VR Awards tickets, nominations, etc?

Yes. Members of AIXR are entitled to a set discount on VR Awards tickets and one free nomination for the VR Awards 2019. Members are also given priority for special collaborations and opportunities with the VR Awards – such as demos at the after party, the opportunity to launch a product/service on the night and the chance to premier a trailer of your newest project on stage.

How much does membership cost?

Membership costs vary between groups. Students, for example, can sign up at a reduced rate. For businesses, membership costs are dependent upon annual turnover.

“As a startup studio working to stake our claim in this marketplace, our mission is to explore the intersection between narrative and emerging technology. Accolades like the VR Awards are an amazing source of fuel to further that mission.”
