Last November the inaugural European VR Congress took place in Poland, seeing over 500 visitors attend. Organised by Konferencje Agora, the 2017 European VR Congress (EVRC) has now been announced with submissions to speak open as well.
Serving as a platform for virtual reality (VR) professionals and enthusiasts alike, the EVRC aims to cover a wide range of disciplines through its various workshops, presentations and talks, such as videogames, construction, architecture, art, marketing, psychology and medicine.
EVRC will also feature a VR EXPO and Startup Zone. The VR EXPO will be expanded from the first event with an enhanced programme of activities such as Speed Dating – in which a series of brief meetings matching VR companies with investors takes place. It’s here that the workshops will take place allowing visitors to broaden their knowledge on selected subjects, like cinematic VR for instance. Whilst the Startup Zone is where innovative projects from Poland and abroad will have a chance to introduce themselves to the public.
Currently no speakers have been confirmed yet but the November event did attract sessions from Ricoh, Discovery, Immersion, Carbon Studio and many more. While it maybe too early for speakers, tickets are on sale offering early bird deals. Until 28th February prices are 655 z? net (approx £130 GBP).
