If you’re coming out to XRDC in San Francisco next month, take a moment to look over some of the program highlights of this premier AR/VR/MR innovation conference before you arrive!
XRDC 2019 will take place October 14th and 15th at the beatiful waterfront Fort Mason Festival Pavilion. An innovative new silent conference system will see attendees decked out with headphones (collected and cleaned between presentations) to ensure everyone can enjoy demos, business meetings, and expert-led presentations in a convivial, cohesive hall.
“As virtual, augmented, and mixed reality developers continue to expand their innovations into new industries, it’s become essential for XRDC to provide an educational space for this work to be displayed,” said Katie Stern, General Manager, XRDC and GDC. “We’re thrilled to provide our attendees with the opportunity to take a closer look at these innovations while networking with like-minded peers.”
Register to attend XRDC now and you’ll claim access to a ton of great content, at a lower price than you’ll pay at the door! This year there’s an all-new XRDC pass for sale, the Startup Pass, which is nearly half the price of the regular pass and specifically designed to give smaller teams and trailblazing startups a clear path to success at XRDC.
