  • That’s a great list, thanks for sharing it!

  • Steve Biegun

    What about the Unity VR/AR Vision Summit? And your link for VRLA is wrong.

    • Ian Hamilton

      I haven’t seen dates announced yet for Unity but I just double-checked with them and will update if I hear about that one. Also, I fixed the VRLA link. Thanks for letting me know and sorry about that.

  • Joshua Bonilla

    Awesome summary but I thought VRTO should be on the list. Is there any reason why it was not considered?

    • Ian Hamilton

      Just an oversight on my part, my apologies. VRTO is on the list now.

      • Joshua Bonilla

        Thanks Ian. I read your articles daily and they play a big role in keeping me up to date with the VR/AR industry.
