This night will celebrate the very best in VR development and shine a light on the industry as a whole. With thanks to the Riftmax development team the event will be hosted live within VR on a custom stage. A virtual award will be presented to the winning developers who will be welcomed onto the stage to say a few words about their achievement.

The whole event will be streamed live through YouTube, Twitch, and Hitbox with special live screenings in Riftmax which you can attend. There will also be after-show events where you can meet the developers and VR personalities.
