The VR Awards brings together top executives and pioneers from across the world every year, rolling out the red carpet award and providing a platform for recognising the very best talent in the immersive industry.
The VR Awards 2017 began the night in true black tie fashion. As over 300 international delegates arrived for the evening’s events, guests were greeted with champagne and given the opportunity to network before the official opening speeches.
Exploring all that has been achieved in the previous decades of Virtual Reality, how far we’ve come and all that we have to look forward to for the future of VR.
Both Daniel Colaianni from AIXR and James Knight from AMD Studios took to the stage, providing a warm welcome to delegates and reflecting on just how far the industry has come in such a small amount of time.
