VRLA, one of the original VR conventions, is preparing for its return next month, and it’s packing a promising line-up.
The show is set to take place on 4th – 5th May at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Two days of talks and workshops will be running alongside an expo floor featuring a range of VR and AR experiences.
Headlining this year’s show are talks from The Void, the company that recently brought us the Star Wars: Shadow of the Empire location-based VR experience and Rikard Steiber, President of Viveport over at HTC. Steiber will be joined by Dell’s Gary Radburn to talk ‘Empowering VR Developers, Businesses and Consumers’. Other keynote speakers include AltspaceVR’s Katie Kelly, Qualcomm’s Hugo Swart and Walt Disney Imagineering’s Jon Snoddy.
It’s not all just talking, though; there’ll be several announcements at the show. Specifically, we’ll see a world premiere from Skydance Interactive, the company that brought us Archangel. We’re not sure what the company has in store, though we do know it’s currently working on some major updates for its mech-based shooter.
Elsewhere there are set to be announcements from Intel and Ricoh.
A Saturday pass to VRLA is just $40 (or $30 if you’re a student). However you can get a two day Pro Pass including the Friday for $299, along with shorter lines and access to more sessions.
