NANCHANG, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- The 2019 World Conference on virtual reality (VR) Industry will be held from Oct. 19 to 21 in Nanchang, capital of eastern China's Jiangxi Province, organizers said Saturday.
A total of 108 VR industry agreements and projects worth more than 35 billion yuan (about 5 billion U.S. dollars) were inked during last year's conference held in Nanchang, said Yang Wenbin, deputy mayor of the city, at a press conference.
Over 90 percent of the projects have been either registered or put into operation, Yang said.
The city has invited more than 370 enterprise executives to attend this year's conference and a batch of major VR projects are expected to be signed, according to the organizers.
A VR expo will also be held during the event, with an exhibition area of 60,000 square meters. Nearly 200 VR and AR (augmented reality) enterprises will participate in the expo, an increase of about 30 percent year on year.
