FutureTechLive! (which started out 4 years ago as “VR CON”) is the hub for tech meets entertainment – VR, AR, AI, Immersive, Gaming, eSports, Space and more. FTL features some of the coolest and boldest experiences from the Hollywood studios, gaming companies, media makers, and tech innovators.  Exhibitors such as NBCU, Warner Bros., Sony, Paramount, Oculus/Facebook, Blizzard, Sega, Qualcomm, Lenovo, Microsoft, et. al. partake. 

Comic-Con San Diego is an especially momentous occasion this year – it celebrates its 50th Anniversary, so it will be more epic than ever! The convention is already long sold out, as always.  Since we are an official event of Comic-Con, we and our exhibitors/sponsors also benefit from Comic-Con’s massive social media and promotional machinery, an opportunity to be on panels, be part of the first Comic-Con press event, receive Comic-Con’s press list, get Comic-Con badges, and more.
