NextM is a tech-conference focusing on how technology impacts media and marketing.

At CopenX realities you can learn about the impact of immersive-technology on cultural and socioeconomic structures, and how this will shape our future. We will feature keynote speakers in the fields of technology, entertainment, business, science, politics, NGO’s and media during two days of in-depth and innovative speaks, debates, workshops and networking.

The potential for these technologies to reshape our society presents an untapped opportunity for bettering our world while offering a bright, yet uncertain future. But also presents new challenges.
