The '2018 Busan VR Festival', which examines the future of virtual reality (VR), which has emerged as the core of the 4th industrial revolution and related industry prospects, opened on the 26th at BEXCO in Haeundae.

This event, co-hosted by the Ministry of Science and ICT, Busan City, and the Information and Communication Industry Promotion Agency, explores business models of virtual reality and augmented reality (AR) and ways to create a global platform. More than 17,000 people are expected to visit the VR Festival exhibition, which will be held until the 28th, as the number of participating companies increased from 74 to 96 last year. During this event, attempts are made to increase synergy by connecting virtual reality with regional specialized industries such as marine, construction, film, and medical care.
