Masterclass: Virtual reality, Create EXPO 2017

20 July, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Vision West Nottinghamshire College and Nottingham Trent University (NTU) are working together on an exciting series of free insight and masterclass sessions.  These events are all themed around business innovation, success and development.  They also provide the opportunity to network. 

Introduction to Masterclasses

The masterclass sessions run from 10-4 and are delivered by business experts.  In addition, there is the opportunity for networking over lunch which is provided.  These sessions run monthly from May to December 2017, usually in the new university centre on the college’s Derby Road campus. Each session covers a different topic and is often preceded by breakfast insight taster sessions. What’s more, since these are part-funded through ERDF, attendance at these events is completely free.  However, please note that the Create EXPO 2017 event follows a slightly different format and will be held in the Create Theatre.  Furthermore, there will be a nominal charge of £5 to cover attendance.
