WWTO's BIG Virtual Reality Event

Virtual Reality (VR) is taking the mainstream by storm growing from what is expected to be a 3 million device market next year to over 30 million by 2020, making it a $4 billion dollar industry in just headset sales alone (Juniper). VR's immersive capabilities has a powerful capacity to change all aspects of our lives from how we play games, to how we experience movies and TV to how we train for our jobs and communicate with one another.

Our evening will begin with Ana Serrano, Chief Digital Officer at CFC who will use her experience with VR created at the CFC Media Lab to shed light on a new era of virtual reality. Following this, we will hear from Stefan Grambart, Creative Director ofSecret Location who will talk about the "Road to the Emmy's" hot off the heels of winning the very first Emmy for VR for the "Sleepy Hollow" VR experience. The remainder of our on-stage sessions will include a showcase of VR work from OccupiedVR, Cubicle Ninjas, Cinehacks and Globacore before moving into a panel discussion on the impact of VR on our society from film and TV to training and work and beyond.

But of course talking about VR is not enough! We want you to try it for yourself. To do that we have put together a stellar demo area featuring experiences and tech from Quantum Capture, Bublcam, Globacore, Pinch VR, BreqLabs, OccupiedVR, CFC, Cubicle Ninjas and Cinehackers.

PLUS Pizza from Pizza Pizza, Beer from Amsterdam Brewery and other refreshments will be served (we've got you!). This is a FREE event.
