Virtual Reality Developers Conference is gearing up to bring premier content and networking opportunities for immersive VR, AR and MR experience creators to San Francisco’s Union Square Hotel on September 21 & 22. An initial batch of knowledge-enriching and inspiring sessions focused on key themes facing content creators has been revealed, and registration is open now.
“As virtual and augmented reality innovations continue to emerge, the need for more education around its development grows,” said Katie Stern, General Manager, VRDC and GDC. “This year’s programming will help VR, AR, and MR creators understand the latest technologies, techniques, and trends while networking with industry leaders.”
According to the second annual VRDC VR/AR Innovation Report, 95% of respondents think VR, AR, and MR are long-term sustainable markets. To help attendees gain insight into future development and opportunity in these fields, VRDC sessions focus on VR, AR, and MR as well as use cases across industries including, Brand Experience, Innovation, Healthcare, and Games and Entertainment.
