Global Virtual Reality Day 2018 Kick Off This Saturday

This Saturday celebrate Global Virtual Reality Day by attending local VR events near you. On November 17th, 2018, Global Virtual Reality Day kicks off its second annual celebration of all things VR and AR. This year’s event will be even bigger than last years with 62 cities (and counting) providing opportunities for anyone to get involved in the VR/AR trend.

Attendees get to learn and experience from different VR/AR demonstrations, become educated about virtual and augmented reality. All of the Global Virtual Reality Day’s events are free, open to the public, and organized entirely by individuals or organizations as a grassroots effort, with a goal to help VR and AR become more mainstream. Events will include product showcases, demos of the latest experiences and apps, and tutorials on how to get started with VR and AR.

Other highlights include:

  • Virtual Reality Day is also partnering with AltspaceVR and High Fidelity to produce a 24 hour in VR conference that includes a roster of rotating hosts and speakers during the 24 hours of Virtual Reality Day.
  • Individuals that own a VR headset and unable to attend an event in-person are encouraged to participate in the #VR121 initiative. An effort to encourage owners of VR hardware to give just one person (friend, co-worker, family member, etc.) their first VR experience on Virtual Reality Day.

About Virtual Reality Day:

Virtual Reality Day started as a simple effort to get both enthusiasts and the industry to focus their efforts together for one day every year in order to educate the public about VR/AR technologies. Slated to fall on the last Saturday before Black Friday in the United States, last year’s first event garnered 8 participating cities. The forthcoming second annual event has greatly eclipsed that effort with 62 participating cities and counting.
