Video conferencing has helped bridge the communication gap throughout the pandemic. Even so, companies are struggling to replicate the collaboration and socialization of in-person meetings. Enter XR: Where virtual offices were once seen as futuristic, COVID brought the concept to the fore and tech companies have taken notice. In this session, enterprise practitioners discuss how they are leveraging AR/VR/MR to:

- Mimic real-world interactions
- Collaborate in a virtual workspace (multi-user collaboration)
- Improve the remote work (WFH) experience 
- Facilitate more nuanced communication amongst team members 
- Reduce travel costs and carbon footprint
- Enable hybrid work models
- MORE: Challenges and costs of adopting XR for collaboration, current market for VR meeting solutions, benefits of shared virtual spaces over standard video conferencing, virtual offices, social VR (avatars and more), user acceptance, future of collaboration, etc.
