VRX 2018 Agenda Online

In the midst of the holiday season, on December 6-7 in San Francisco, the VRX 2018 conference will likely give attendees a sense of where the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) markets stand. According to the conference organizers, over 800 folks will be attending, with 90 speakers, over 40 demos and more. For folks unsure whether to attend or not, the conference agenda is live and might make it easier to decide whether joining in is the right way to go.

The first day of the conference will look at the bigger picture, outlining the opportunities and challenges in VR and AR markets. On the second day, the conference agenda will take a more granular look at VR and AR markets. In terms of content tracks, they are split between consumer tracks and startup tracks

However, if you’re in the business or development of games in AR or VR here’s a few sessions at VRX 2018 — all from the consumer track on day two — from the full agenda that might inspire interest.
