It’s been an incredible year for virtual reality (VR) with amazing experiences coming to headsets, discounts galore, new devices and technologies being revealed, and more events either featuring or being dedicated to immersive entertainment. But 2017 isn’t over yet, and for those keen on learning more about VR in all its forms Tandem Events will be holding its second Develop:VR event next month in London, UK.
If you’ve not been following VRFocus’ regular updates about Develop:VR it’s the sister event to Develop: Brighton, designed as a way for content creators – or really anyone interested in VR – to come together, share ideas, network and learn from one another.
Naturally there’s going to be a broad range of speakers and topics being discussed over the course of the one day conference, with Stuart Whyte, director of VR product development for Sony London Studios delivering a keynote presentation entitled, ‘Taking VR to the Next Level – A Case Study in AAA Games Development’. Also on the roster of speakers are: Andrew Willans, CCP Games; Faviana Vangelius, SVRVIVE; Anna Hollinrake, Climax Studios; Brynley Gibson, Kuju; Pete Daukintis, Microsoft; Martin de Ronde, Force Field VR; Dan Sheridan, nDreams, and many more.
Alongside the conference there will be several exhibitors demonstrating the latest VR technology, with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE), Hammerhead VR, Make Real, Focal Point VR and Beloudest, Paw Print Games, Psytec Games, Novatech and Zerolight all confirmed.
Develop:VR will return on 9th November 2017, held at London’s Olympia. Tickets are still available at the standard rate of £294.00 GBP inc VAT, giving access to all the conference sessions and a free lunch. Or if you just want to go to the expo and networking events, passes are completely free to register for (no free lunch though).
