Liberact IV: Converge & Create
From 31 October to 1 November, the IFE’s Visualisation and eResearch team hosted “Liberact”, an Australian first for the international conference. Centred at The Cube at QUT, the event brought together thinkers, leaders, creators, and builders of digital interactive experiences in public, corporate, and academic spaces worldwide. The fourth year for the event focused discussions on design, development, and management of digital spaces and content using next-generation digital AV, IT, and smart building technology.
The event featured plenary presentations, and for the first time, a Technology Hall with vendors and end-users staging demonstrations of the next generation virtual reality, holographic computing, and large-scale digital displays. The event inspired and challenged delegates to imagine how high-impact, memorable experiences can be delivered to an ever growing market of highly expectant digital natives.
The conference was a great success, with esteemed speakers such as Bruce Ramus and an interactive showpiece developed by the ViseR team with Deloitte Digital (more on that here) we look forward to seeing what 2017 has to offer!
