“Our goal with the VR Awards has always been to inspire the next generation of pioneers, so what better way is there than to recognize the achievements of some of our industry’s most dedicated and innovative individuals? Accenture’s support for our work is allowing us to do more, recognizing people further afield, and nurturing a flourishing industry as it continues to grow.” – Daniel Colaianni, Chief Executive, AIXR
“Accenture sees Extended Reality (XR) as a technology that can change the way we learn, access data and services, collaborate, play and connect with people. Our Accenture XR practice is honored to be part of the VR Awards and to support leaders and innovators that are paving the way for this immersive future.” – Nicola Rosa, Accenture XR Lead – UK & Ireland
