 Riyadh, January 27, 2021: The Future Investment Initiative Institute will use a pioneering XR Studio, an immersive technology that will link speakers at the 4th Edition of FII, a multi-hub conference that will address the theme of “The Neo-Renaissance,’’ with audiences around the world.

•The XR Studio has been installed at King Abdul Aziz International Conference Center (KAICC) for the first time to synchronize and render the conference in real time. By using a system of cameras and virtual sets, it will provide an immersive and inter-connected experience for more than 150 speakers attending in-person in Riyadh and from hubs in New York, Paris, Beijing and Mumbai.

• The virtual sets, created specifically for the occasion, offer futuristic 3D environments dedicated to different themes. Learn more about the FII 4th Edition program and request an invitation to participate in a pioneering new approach to how people exchange bold ideas and innovative solutions.

• The in-person and virtual style of the multi-hub conference is part of an effort by the FII Institute to introduce a new way for convening impact oriented conferences. The conference from January 27-28 will allow policy makers, tech pioneers, investors and executives – 60 in-person in Riyadh and 90 virtually – to discuss how to shape a rebirth of the global economy amid the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

• ‘’We are narrowing the gap between the physical conferences of the past and the virtual events that have become the new normal during the pandemic,’’ Richard Attias, CEO of the FII Institute, said. “This format will mean that even though we can’t meet in person, we can still mobilize, interact, exchange ideas and challenge current thinking. This is the future of events and conferences – and we are proud that the FII Institute is pioneering this new approach.’’

• The FII Institute was founded in Riyadh to bring together global leaders, tech pioneers, experts and policy makers to enable concrete ideas that can solve today’s most pressing societal issues, while creating long-term platforms to reshape the future sustainably and create a positive impact on humanity.
