Watch the 2018 Highlights
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 2018 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.
We asked our sponsors, partners and nominees to define what it means to be a pioneer. Their answers were inspiring; they echoed a message of inclusivity across the whole of the industry. We are all pioneers, shaping and transforming the future of immersive technology.
