Opening: We Enter Together
In this year’s ceremony introduction we wanted to look back at a timeline of technological growth, before looking forward to the monumental steps we will take together as we enter the metaverse.
Our 6th International VR Awards entertainment was provided by Andromeda Entertainment, who took to the stage in an incredible display that combined VR with aerial acrobatic excellence.
