GDC 2016 To Include Virtual Reality Developers Conference

Being held alongside Game Developers Conference 2016 in San Francisco, the brand new VRDC – the Virtual Reality Developers Conference – taps expertise from the video game, entertainment, and tech fields to discuss the state of the art in making amazing, immersive VR (and AR) at a new standalone, industry-leading event.

The inaugural VRDC will take place on the Monday and Tuesday of GDC (March 14th & 15th, 2016), and passes to attend in will also allow entrance to the main Game Developers Conference Expo floor from March 16th-18th, where many of VR’s biggest names will be showcasing their latest technology. (VRDC will also be open to all GDC 2016 pass holders who have purchased a Summits or All-Access Pass.)

This major new event goes beyond video games in exploring interactive experiences of all kinds in the VR and AR spaces, and programming for the conference will have applicability both for the burgeoning masses of VR game developers, and those working in VR for non-game but equally immersive purposes – from CG movies to filmed experiences and way beyond.
