VLN Meetings

Do you wonder how other companies are running VR projects? Or how specific business processes are supported by Virtalis products? The VLN meetings provides a forum where like-minded experts connect, exchange and learn from each others journeys. VLN meetings are open to all members and the members drive the agenda for these meetings.

VLN Working Groups

Members gather in Working Groups to zoom in on a specific topic, theme or product. Members can volunteer or request a new Working Group.
VLN members voted on the following Working Groups:
• Collaborative XR • PLM integration • XR - State of Technology • Driving Enterprise Adoption • Virtalis Reach • Visionary Render

Objective

VLN is built on the desire of Virtalis customers to improve product knowledge and learn from other experts about VR journeys, use-cases, challenges, and solutions.
