Event producer and MD at VR Intelligence, Pete Carkeek, says, “VRX Europe is coming at a critical time for consumer VR. Bringing together so many industry analysts and business leaders, our aim is to separate the hype from the reality, get to the core of the market and explore what we can really expect to see over the months and years to come.

“With the recent high profile releases from Oculus and HTC, and PlayStation VR coming soon, we’re looking forward to hearing what they all have in store, while our demo zone will bring some of the latest technology available for people to try for the first time in the UK.

“We’re confident that connecting these VR innovators will help to push the industry forward, while also giving non-VR companies an opportunity to learn about the latest tech and how their business can benefit from investing in VR.”
