Dr James Bower
He is CEO of Numedeon Inc, which he helped found in 1999 to launch Whyville.net, the first browser-based virtual world for children, and one of the first-gaming based learning sites on the Internet. In 2014, he founded Virtual Worlds IP LLC, to further develop immersive online virtual worlds and educational gaming technology.
"I believe virtual events will be the absolute norm going forward - capturing the best of both worlds, face-to-face and online. How you merge those two effectively, however, is not trivial."
