News UK’s Chief Commercial Officer, Dominic Carter, will be chairing a lively discussion about the potential future of advertising in virtual worlds. As VR becomes mainstream, with 360º video capabilities being promoted by companies as diverse as Samsung and McDonalds, the question of how advertising will fit into this new technological universe necessarily arises.
