- UnfoldSocial: Drinks & Network and What's Next in 2018
• What we'll do Hi All! Yes, the group has been under the radar for the better half of the past year, for inescapable/unprecedented reasons (more details TBA on our website next week)... But fear not, have we got plans for 2018! Thank you all for your continued support & helping to kick the group forward. To begin, a fun venue is being locked for a casual drinks & networking social 🎉. No real agenda other than getting people together and announcing what the future holds, catch up & chat all things VR/AR/MR. I hope to see many friendly and new faces there!! Lots of love, Luciana • What to bring Nothing necessary, just your fun selves :) Everyone is welcomed (not a 'women only'!), regardless of whether you are working or simply interested in the new, immersive/emerging tech world. • Important to know We have a reserved private space and will have 2x free bottles at the very start, but then it's pay-for-consumption. Official hours are 7-9pm so head there early to avoid disappointment! Any questions, please contact me on [masked] or[masked]
