Is VR a revolution? Is it social? The future of eSports? Can it tell stories? Is it dangerous? Can we already make money with it? Creatives all over the world began to imagine immersive spheres. We can explore them by simply using our smartphones. What we see is just early iterations of a medium that will alter the way we experience reality. Now we have to rethink technology, business and creative processes. Our speakers and experts share their knowledge about a medium that can be beneficial for so many. But we have to ask the right questions and hope for man answers.
Speaker Highlights:

Alysha Naples (former Magic Leap): What are great questions to ask about VR?

James Jensen (THE VOID): Is THE VOID the revolution of games or theme parks – or both?

Gabo Arora (United Nations Virtual Reality): Is VR really turning us into better persons?


Making VR is adventurous. We celebrate this love for adventure and award the ones who stand out in excellence in the following categories: Tech, Business and Art. We’re looking for those who invent technology to shape our future. Who create innovative business models. Who give visionary content a new presence.
