Los Angeles, Calif., March 30, 2017 - The Los Angeles VR/AR scene is just beginning to make a name for itself, and the VR/AR Association (VRARA), in partnership with leading 360-degree camera maker Insta360, is planning a party that will help put it on the map. To follow up one of the biggest tech events in Los Angeles, VRLA Expo, the VR/AR Association Los Angeles chapter led by Josephine Munis and the Atlanta chapter led by The Virtual Reality Girl, Laura Hall, are throwing an afterparty fit for the occasion, on Friday, April 14th, at Upload LA in Marina Del Rey.

With the venue graciously provided by Upload at their new LA location in Marina Del Rey, this party will bring together the leading voices in VR/AR and the tech industry while offering a fun and exciting environment for attendees to let loose and enjoy.

Guests will have the chance to demo awesome experiences, check out Insta360’s brand-new professional 360 camera, enjoy incredible food and beverages on VRARA and have a lot of fun! The VR/ARA has lined up a VR DJ to set the mood and will be handing out Swag Bags that will not disappoint.

The event is co-hosted by Insta360, the maker of the world’s most versatile 360-degree cameras, with a goal to empower creators to start capturing virtual reality content and sharing it with the world. Insta360 will demo its plug-and-play 360 cameras for iPhone and Android, as well as the brand-new Insta360 Pro, an 8K camera for pro filmmakers. President of the VRARA Los Angeles chapter, Josephine Munis, explains, “with the help of our co-host, Insta360, VRARA Los Angeles chapter is fulling embracing the nature of VR and AR technologies by making this as immersive as an event as possible.” ADVR, who specializes in immersive virtual reality marketing and advertising, is sponsoring the event.
