IUNC Latin America 2016 is an exclusive face-to-face networking event specifically designed to connect universities from around the world with international office directors and representatives from Latin American institutions and edu agents.

For the first time the conference was held in a VR Hub, all participants created their own booth, customized it to better represent their institutions, and could interact with each other as avatars. When visiting a booth participants had access to downloadable brochures and resources to learn more, or they could chat directly with the institution’s representative.

The VR Hub recreates the dynamics of a traditional conference, all activities such as live presentations, ONE-2-ONE meetings, and networking taking place naturally just as in person, combined with the added possibilities offered by Social VR.

An integrated search engine allows to find exactly who or what you are looking for: other participants, institutions, products or services are just a click away! During the second day of IUNC Latin America 2016 participants had prescheduled ONE-2-ONE meetings, in a second they could find each other, exchange business cards, and start a Skype call.

In the auditorium of the VR Hub the organizers held live presentations with experts in international higher education who discussed new opportunities and perspectives for cooperation and industry best practices.
