Originally beginning life back in 2015 as the Dutch VR Day Meetup, VR Days Europe has continued to expand over the past few years into one of the biggest European events focused on virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR). Now in its fourth year, VR Days Europe is set to return for 2018, with dates and speakers announced for October.
VR Days Europe aims to offer festival attendees a compelling range of keynotes, sessions, workshops and seminars, featuring over 140 immersive industry professionals and experts drawn from the health, technology, business and arts sectors.
Experts confirmed so far include Michael Buckwald, CEO of Leap Motion, Mel Slater, a VR Researcher, Brennan Spiegel from Cider Sinae, as well as speakers from Google, Unity, KLM, Microsoft, HP, DV Mobile and many more.
“VR Days is a remarkable mixture of amazing hardware and software companies, investors, and industry experts set in a beautiful environment that encourages a great mix of browsing, networking, and learning from speakers. I highly recommend it,” said Philip Rosedale, High Fidelity, in a statement.
Returning for 2018, the programme will also include an Exhibition for attendees to get hands-on with the latest hardware and software, the Church of VR in collaboration with the world-renowned EYE Filmmuseum which will showcase a 30+ selection of creative XR works, and for something a little different there’s always the Philosopher’s Salon where every two hours one philosopher will kick start a conversation.
VR Days Europe will take place from 24th – 26th October 2018, in Amsterdam at DeLaMarTheater (24 Oct), Kromhouthal (25-26 Oct). Tickets are already on sale with early bird prices available until 31st August with an All Access pass retailing for €249 EUR rather than €299. Prices are even cheaper if you’re a returning delegate with an All Access pass costing €219.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of VR Days Europe, reporting back with any further updates.
