VR Connect 12th June - Aarhus, Hamburg, Malmo

10 June 2018 - Published by Julie Craik
Create Converge is getting really truly virtual with an event you can attend simultaneously in Aarhus, Denmark, Hamburg, Germany and Malmo, Sweden! We're introducing new ways of using VR beyond entertainment with three fantastic speakers - Cedric Gamelin of Emblematic Group, Jaana Nykanen of Divine Robot and Mathieu Pradat of La Prairie Productions.

We have three speakers – one in each venue, who will in turn talk about VR within the following three topics; The power of VR, Status quo and the future of VR, and VR as your tool.

Speakers will b demonstrating all kinds of examples of VR. Participants in all three cities will be wearing their own VR headset, and when the speaker asks them to put on the VR headset, they will all do it simultaneously in all three cities, and a VR experience will synchronously start for all participants. After the VR-experience example, the speaker asks the participants to take the VR headset off again, and the talk will continue either on the stage or on screen, depending on location.

The conference will be held twice on Tuesday, June 12. Due to the format, there are only 30 seats available in each city at the time – in total 60 seats in each city. This means that only 180 people, distributed across the three cities, get the opportunity to participate in this exclusive conference.
