If you want to attend this premier world-class Conference & Expo for industry & brand leaders in immersive technology content, knowledge, and creation, save up to $180 in the process, then stop what you’re doing and go buy your passes today. Seriously, why wouldn’t you?
You simply don’t want to miss this event, and we’ll tell you why. The VR/AR Global Summit is a new iteration of the CVR show that ran for 2 years in Vancouver. The event last year was attended by over 750 professionals. The Summit is building on the momentum of CVR, plus VRARA is using its global reach to bring together brilliant and creative minds to Vancouver in September. We’re dedicating our time, resources and talent to making this event better than ever.
More than 1,000 leaders will descend on PARQ Vancouver (a brand new international entertainment destination, featuring a 72,000-square-foot casino, eight diverse restaurants and lounges, a 30,000-square-foot rooftop park, and Vancouver’s largest hotel ballroom) to see the latest technologies from the likes of Autodesk, Intel, HTC, Microsoft, Toshiba.
Vancouver is now one of the largest VR/AR hubs in the world with over 200 companies. Plus, Vancouver is the #1 Global VFX & Animation Cluster, #2 Best City for Asia Pacific Business, #3 Largest Film & TV Production Centre in North America, and a top video game development center, globally.
The event will feature dynamic keynotes, collaborative conversations, workshops, creative hubs, exhibits, breakouts and amazing VIP events. It will showcase the best, and most interesting projects, that the industry has to offer. Speakers at the conference include representation from Amazon, HTC, IBM, Intercontinental Hotels, The Pentagon, The Vatican, and more. You’ll find the full lineup of speakers here.
More than 65 companies will showcase a staggering array of VR/AR technology. All industries are welcome to exhibit, but you’ll find a special focus on these categories: Blockchain, Education, Enterprise, Healthtech, Retail or Training.
