Virtuality Experience Is the Immersive Remote Conference to Attend in December

    The next remote conference on XR is coming to a computer or headset near you. This time, it’s Virtuality , taking place everywhere on December 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

    Virtuality Goes Virtual

    The Virtuality Experience is the VR offering that replaces the physical conference that has historically taken place in France and Argentina. Attendees will be able to access the Manzalab Teemew-enabled environment through PC, Mac, or Quest to network in the virtual halls, attend talks in virtual auditoriums, and visit virtual exhibitor booths, all with a custom avatar.

    “With COVID-19, we were unfortunately unable to organize our annual event in France and Argentina,” according to the event page. “We had to adapt to provide a solution and our industry inspired us to offer you, with Teemew Events, our first tradeshow 100% online: the Virtuality Experience.”

    Tickets to this remote conference are completely free, however, would-be attendees must apply for access.

    Exhibitors, Speakers, and Talks to Look Forward To

    The event has attracted more than 50 exhibitors, including Microsoft, Lenovo, PTC, Taqtile, Healium, and PwC.

    There will also be talks given by industry experts including

    • HP’s Joanna Popper;
    • Amy Peck of EndeavorXR;
    • Amy Hedrick of Cleanbox;
    • Unity’s Elizabeth Baron;
    • Othman Chiheb of Microsoft HoloLens;
    • Antony Pinto of NVIDIA;
    • Melanie de Riberolles of Ubisoft;
    • Rendever’s Kyle Rand;

    • “The Infinite Retina” author Robert Scoble;

    Smartphones at the forefront of Virtual Reality. It’s a worldwide reality: smartphones dominate everyone’s every move. It comes as no surprise that taking the smartphone experience to the next level means stepping up the game in VR. With all the VR content users can sink their claws into, all one needs is the perfect device to embrace the wealth of entertainment that awaits him or her.

    Will We See You There?

    Having attended more than a few of these remote conferences myself now, I can say that there is something bittersweet about them.

    Of course we all look forward to returning to meeting in person, or to traveling to locations like Paris or Buenos Aires. However, creative, industrious, and truly immersive venues like this one make these experiences more accessible to more people. And, there is something beautiful about going to a VR conference in VR.
