What is the Createch Summit?
A 1 day event exploring how creativity and technology combine to shape the future.
When and where is it happening?
6 February in Mumbai, with other events throughout the month.
Innovation in design and production technologies has transformed the way things are made and used. Emerging technologies like virtual & augmented reality and 3D printing are disrupting traditional services and industries. You can now build homes in less than a day from pre-fabricated bricks and artificial intelligence will soon replace us at the steering wheel as self-driving cars land on our roads by 2020.
As we explore what this means for the future of industrial development, you’ll hear from the CEO of a leading UK automotive multinational about how British ingenuity and craftsmanship is taking their brand to markets around the world.
Technologies like virtual reality and wearables are already starting to alter the way we play, consume and design. Led by top UK talent, we’ll explore how these immersive technologies are already changing the face of multiple industries, as well as the way we interact with each other.
From augmented reality in classroom teaching aids, to VR headsets training hospital surgeons, you’ll hear about and interact with the latest in immersive technologies. Take the opportunity to meet and engage with UK companies and explore how you can use these virtual technologies to help tackle real world challenges.
Technology has changed the way we experience and produce film, TV, music, and other unique content, as well as how these new products and services are advertised to us. From autonomous drones filming remote landscapes for the next sci-fi epic to a hologram of your favourite artist performing in your living room, technology is pushing the boundaries of what we expect in our entertainment choices.
You’ll hear first-hand from an Oscar-winning creative studio about how innovations in special effects, post-production and virtual & augmented reality have led to industry-wide disruption, and for them award-winning projects. You’ll also meet companies from the UK music industry and discover opportunities for UK-India collaboration in mixing and mastering, branding and expanding the music festival scene here in India.
