2nd Digility conference and expo in Cologne

The 2nd Digility VR/AR conference and expo took place July 5 to 6, 2017 in Cologne. According to the organizers, the event gathered together nearly 1400 participants literally from all continents. Experts from various industries were discussing digital trends and innovations for virtual and augmented reality, 360° imaging, 3D and from adjacent fields.


At the Digility conference, 70 international renowned speakers shared unique insights on two main stages and in several workshops into already existing use cases and their research results. During the expo, exhibitors and attendees had the possibility to meet new customers, suppliers, sparring partners and investors. With 65 exhibiting research institutions and companies from Germany, Canada, Israel, Spain, Hungary, the Netherlands, Belgium, UK and from the US, the exposition was growing immensely this year and attempted to reflect the whole value chain of immersive technologies.

„Establishing a new event is never an easy thing to do. But we took our chances with Digility and were rewarded with a truly successful second edition after an already promising start in 2016,” said Katharina C. Hamma, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse. “The two days proved to us that the demand for such an event in the heart of Europe is tremendous. The industry needs a central place for exchanging knowledge, ideas and contacts – and Koelnmesse is providing this for exhibitors, investors, startups and research institutions.”

Twelve innovative start-ups from the nearby region and all over the world joined the Digility Start-Up Village which was funded by a cooperation between Mediennetzwerk NRW, IHK Köln, DigitalHubCologne, the EDFVR (First German association for Virtual Reality) and Koelnmesse. Digility presented twelve startups from Canada, Israel, Hungary, England and various NRW locations to show the overall diversification in new realities and concrete application of new business models.
