Alain GALLEZ started his career in the coaching of entrepreneurs at a local level, then at a European level. He’s the author of a best practice guide for training of beginner entrepreneurs. This technical guide was translated and published in five languages by the European Commission and became a model for a series of 6 other titles.
In 1999, he made a career change, creating the event agency Eventis, with which he organized conferences and seminars in high-tech sectors, such as nuclear fusion, space, and immersive technologies (first 3D, then XR). In 2009, he created the event Stereopsia (formerly 3D Stereo MEDIA), with a colleague in Liege, Belgium. In a few years, Stereopsia has succeeded in becoming one of the major events in a world where image and communication technologies are rapidly advancing. Considered as a forerunner event in all digital image technologies, Stereopsia has brought to the forefront, since its inception in 2009, the technologies used today by the industry to increase its performance and competitivity.
Since 2020, Alain is the founder and managing director of XR4Europe, a Pan-European association that federates all the XR professionals, organizations and initiatives to support the development, promote and represent XR innovation, industry and creativity made in Europe.
