The second annual Virtual & Augmented Reality World Conference & Expo will be held June 25 and 26th at Rogers Communications Center at Ryerson University here in Toronto. You can find out all the details on the official site, and pick up your tickets over on Eventbrite here.
VRTO aims to empower people to share their world, culture, knowledge and dreams with the assistance of emergent immersive technologies.
Recognized internationally for its high caliber, high-quality discussions, in-depth training, world-class presentations and top level speakers, VRTO brings together compelling discourse and bleeding-edge prototypes, demonstrations and innovative companies in carefully crafted schedules and environments.
VRTO is always an opportunity to build powerful and long-lasting business and personal relationships, with a very open-minded and inclusive community, unafraid to ask the big questions. Furthermore, the show provides many different tools to ensure attendees find their best matches towards meeting their goals at the show.
In 2016, VRTO hosted a town hall and summit to ratify a Code of Ethics for Human Augmentation led by inventor and Meta Chief Scientist Steve Mann. Read more about the Scientific paper and code that was written at Kurzweil AI
The VRTO conference is not a Toronto VR conference – it is an international conference that takes place in and leverages the tremendous R&D community of Toronto.
I was just mentioning on this weeks podcast that VR appears to just be full steam ahead right now, with Bloxiq VR shown last week, here comes Mervils, a fantasy VR game from London developer VitruviusVR.
