The fourth annual Silicon Valley Virtual Reality (SVVR) Conference and Expo will be making its return to the San Jose Convention Center, California, next year with the dates for the event recently announced.
The three day event will be taking place from Wednesday 29th to Friday 31st March 2017, and if its anything like this years show will feature a strong line-up with the biggest names in the industry attending.
Currently no speakers, sponsors, media partners or exhibitors have been confirmed for SVVR 2017 but it’s still very early for that to happen. SVVR organisers will likely make an open call to companies soon as organisation for the event progresses.
The 2016 show, which took place towards the end of April, marked a major turning point for the virtual reality (VR) industry. Only a few weeks prior to the event came the launch of the Oculus Rift on 28th March, with the HTC Vive following shortly afterwards on 5th April. The timing meant that SVVR 2016 was probably the first show where both head-mounted displays (HMDs) were on show whilst being publicly available – although both Oculus and HTC were having a few issues at the time delivering the headsets to pre-order customers.
The show had companies such as Oculus VR; NVIDIA; Virtually Live; Noitom; Nokia; Vizuality Studio; Selvez; Durovis Dive; VideoStitch; High Fidelity; Ossic; Fraunhofer IIS; ForgeFX Training Simulations; Spherica; MindVR; VRChat; IMGNATION Studios; VEGA; Tactonic Technologies; Reverge VR; Matterport; AnVRse; Momento360; Be.Vision; VirZoom; Max Virtual; VicoVR; Panono; Boost VC; VRecover and Kodak PIXPRO Digital Devices in attendance.
