Unity CEO John Riccitiello Hosting Keynote at VRLA

Tickets are available from $40.

Earlier this month Virtual Reality Los Angeles (VRLA) announced that Justin Roiland, creator of Rick & Morty would be delivering a keynote address at April’s event. That would be taking place on the Saturday, and for the Friday’s address organisers have secured Unity Technologies CEO John Riccitiello.

The Unity videogame engine is one of the most widely used for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) development, most recently launching an experimental build of EditorVR. This allows studio’s to create experiences in VR rather than on a desktop monitor, with a range of customised functions for use with motion controllers like Oculus Touch or HTC Vive.

“Unity has done so much to support and accelerate the VR ecosystem,” said Adam Levine, co-founder of VRLA. “Were proud to host John as Unity continues its mission to educate and empower the industry and VRLAs vibrant community of VR creators, companies and enthusiasts.”

The expo will take place 14th – 15th April, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and will include demos, educational sessions, experimental work and presentations. Registrations have now opened for the VRLA, with the business-focused 2-Day Pro Pass at $299 USD and a 1-Day Pass for Saturday priced at $40.
