This year VRTO will feel like a mastermind symposium for the leaders and new stars to this powerful new medium. A recalibration after the 5 year wave unlike any other VR or AR conference.

Does this mean we will launch banana splits out of a cannon? Probably not. But hey, you never know…

VRTO - Virtual and Augmented Reality World Conference is a unique forum for philosophers, ontologists, creators, technologists, distributors and investors to come together under one roof and work towards developing a framework and process to contend with the insane pace of today’s technology.

From media moguls to psychedelic researchers, from Stanford academics to Brooklyn social activists, VRTO introduces the media veterans to the fresh new minds and creates an environment where new pathways can be forged. These are the conversations you won’t find anywhere else!
