The 2017 Virtual Reality Conference and Expo Schedule

by Charles Singletary • September 18th, 2017

2016 could be considered the official introduction of virtual reality to the world and many industries have either embraced the technology at varying levels or simply started paying attention to movements within the industry. 2017 is going to be a pivotal year for the technology’s growth and there will be many events welcoming VR as an auxiliary experience or fully focusing on the potential of the immersive tech.

We’ve put together an extensive list of events around the world that will involve virtual reality but, if we’ve missed any, email [email protected] and let us know. We plan to update this list periodically.

  • Great list, thanks for sharing it. Yesterday I was at a little event in my city (Turin, Italy) called “Sognando La Realtà” (Dreaming Reality): I guess that UploadVR is not interested in these little local events but they will help a lot to spread VR even in little cites

    • Ben McNulty

      Did someone submit this event as a tip to Upload beforehand? It’s been my experience that they give coverage to events of all sizes, so I would give the benefit of the doubt and guess Upload was unaware of the event. To suggest Upload is uninterested or anything less than an ally for small market events is both unfair and unfounded.

  • Chad

    One of the things that keeps bringing me back to UploadVR are these comprehensive lists for those of us seeking to understand the broad scope of VR influence. Thank You!
    Just curious why no mention of China Digital Entertainment Expo & Conference? Is it just because no dates have been established yet?
