VRDC heads to Shanghai with new VRDC Asia event this November!

Organizers of the Virtual Reality Developers Conference, the premier event for creators of immersive VR, AR, and MR experiences, are proud to announce details today for an expanded edition: VRDC Asia!

To meet the growing demand in China for high-quality VR/AR/MR education and networking opportunities, VRDC Asia will deliver relevant regional content hosted by a new Advisory Board. The two-day event will bring together designers, programmers, business professionals, producers, artists, and audio practitioners to share best practices, demo new technology, create new business partnerships, and exchange ideas with innovators shaping the industry.

VRDC Asia will take place November 15-16, 2017 at the Renaissance Shanghai Zhongshan Park in Shanghai, China. To register or submit your speaking abstract by August 10, visit the new VRDC Asia website!

To meet the growing demand for high-quality content in the space of VR, AR, and MR on a global scale, VRDC Asia will bring valuable insights covering games, entertainment, education & training, innovation and more. For the first time, the event will bring the industry’s latest research to Shanghai as China’s VR hardware market is experiencing explosive growth with strong investment, widespread infrastructure deployment, exciting new content, and new major players entering the space. This year’s critical coverage areas will include:

  • Innovation Track

With this ambitious mission in mind, VRDC organizers are seeking the latest research and innovations in VR, AR and MR for this November event. Potential speakers may submit detailed technical and business-centric talks today through August 10!

“Virtual reality has continued to grow to new heights – this was even more apparent after witnessing the popularity of our co-located VRDC at GDC event in addition to our inaugural VRDC Fall event last year,” said Simon Carless, Executive Vice President, GDC. “Considering China’s incredible strides in the space, it was a natural step to bring the successful VRDC event to Shanghai where our community can continue to explore this growing industry and foster new relationships critical to its continued expansion.”

VRDC Asia is building an advisory board of seasoned industry professionals to volunteer their time to curate conference content at VRDC Asia. They will work to ensure that the quality of the content provided to attendees is high-level, relevant, and timely. Below are recently announced members of the new VRDC Asia Advisory Board:

  • Noah Falstein, formerly Chief Game Designer, Google
  • Jenna Seiden, Head of Content Acquisitions and Partnerships, Viveport, HTC
