Keynote Session: MediaCityUK – The UK home of immersive entertainment


21st Apr 2021

About this event

Since the first TV show was broadcast from MediaCityUK 10 years ago our creative, digital and tech destination has become synonymous with some of the UK’s most iconic programmes; from ITV’s The Voice and Coronation Street to our daily morning news fix – BBC Breakfast to the nation’s sporting favourite, A Question of Sport.

In the past 12 months, our hunger for content has been limitless and as every element of our lives has shifted to virtual platforms we have never been more receptive to new, immersive ways of being entertained.

MediaCityUK is at the vanguard of this next gen immersive movement where creativity and technology collide to bring cutting edge gaming, esports and virtual reality experiences.

Chairing this fascinating panel discussion is Dr Maria Stukoff, Director of the University of Salford’s Maker Space and former BBC Academy and Sony PlayStation ‘imagineer,’  who recently joined HOST to foster future talent and support the development of its esports and XR immersive community.
