The Warriors Advance to the NBA Finals; Next Week They Advance Their VR Game

The VR/AR Association's next SF chapter event is less than a week away. We're excited to host our headliner, Warriors' VP of Digital Marketing Kenny Lauer.  His participation is even more exciting now that the Warriors have advanced to the NBA finals. 

To celebrate last night's last night's win over the Thunder to advance, we're making a special offer to all VR/AR Beat readers. Register with the code VRARBEAT for half-off registration.

That means for $10 bucks, you'll get lots of networking, stage sessions, VR gear to play with, and food & drink. The event takes place at GoPro's swanky SF offices, so there will be lots of GoPro gear on hand too. We hope to see you there.
