After the huge success of VR World Congress 2016 and the Southwest VR conference, Opposable VR have organised VRWC2017, an unmissable 3 day, 2000 capacity occasion showcasing the top of the VR industry. Jam packed with world-class speakers, conferences and panels, exhibitors and enthusiasts, the event itself is headline sponsored by global tech giant AMD for the second year in a row.

Day One of the Congress will be dedicated to the VR World Congress Matchmaking Event, a fantastic opportunity to connect with key players in VR and surrounding industries. The matchmaking will be run by Enterprise Europe Network to ensure that all visitors have the time and space they need to meet with who they want. With hundreds of attendees expected at the event, VRWC aims at bringing together stakeholders from all backgrounds, from R&D and start-ups working on new developments in the industry to stakeholders from various sectors looking for new solutions and opportunities.
