The Dextra Global VR Summit aims to deliver the same value of an in-person conference, such as VRDC, without the need to physically travel by hosting and streaming everything directly inside VR itself from October 27th to October 30th. At OC5 Oculus talked a lot about how powerful VR is as a tool to connect people and “defy distance” and the Dextra Global VR Summit appears to be an embodiment of that mentality.
Reportedly users will be able to attend the summit via mobile devices, PCs, and “any” VR headset. From what we can tell on the website, it seems like talks will be streamed directly inside VR while live panels will be held inside of AltspaceVR. Speakers include leadership from Digital Domain, HTC Vive, Google, NVIDIA, and many others. You can see an overview of the four-day event’s schedule right here.
From the company’s website:
The Dextra Global VR Summit is the world’s first summit on VR in VR. It is an online conference aiming to share the experience and insights of pioneers and professionals in VR to the thousands of VR creators of tomorrow, along with the ability to network with peers in similar or complementary professions related to VR.
It is a four-day-long online event hosted on the Dextra platform. Anyone can attend the summit from their computers or phones without having to spend any time or money on travel.
The Dextra Global VR Summit is being held later this month from October 27th to October 30th. To register for the event, go to the official website.
