IBIS serves as a forum for high-level debate, a melting pot of innovative approaches to industry problems and, of course, offers incomparable networking opportunities.
World class conference content and speakers are the driving force behind the success of IBIS and as a strong supporter of their mission, Dimovski has appeared as a regular speaker due to the relevance of his expertise in immersive technologies and the roles they play in the highly technical world of collision repair, especially as they relate to ensuring the safety of the world’s drivers during these unprecedented times of uncertainty caused by the global pandemic. “This new, ever changing normal will require an agility and flexibility that VR and AR technologies are uniquely equipped to address”, said Dimovski.
