Rebel Role Model CEO Nancy Coblenz believes VR will be a powerful bridge at this year’s inaugural event.
“Augmented and virtual reality harnesses the power of emotion and first hand experiences like no other technology,” she says. “It is by far the most impactful encounter one can have to connect with others.”
Coblenz’s company provides bridges the gap between millennial and Gen Z consumers through augmented and virtual reality marketing and experiential solutions. To introduce their one-of-a kind services to the world, the conference will offer a 48-hour Augmented Reality game–the longest playing in the nation, and the first for a national conference. But the real focus will be on the relationships–the bonding set to occur between experienced professionals and newcomers to the fields of social media, marketing and business.
“You’ll walk in as a rebel, and leave as a role model.”
