VR World congress (VRWC) is a new, UK based virtual reality event aiming to highlight the latest and greatest from the rapidly growing VR scene. For the inaugural event, virtual reality ‘Auteurs’ Kite & Lightning will be present to debut their latest project ‘Bebylon: Battle Royale‘.
The first VR World Congress Expo, a follow-up to last year’s successful Southwest VR conference, is around the corner and the organisers Opposable VR, are releasing details about how the show’s line up is shaping up.
The event is promising 25+ exhibitors filling their dedicated expo hall from all walks of the VR industry, including Ximmerse, Coatsink, Trinus and Block Interval. The event will also play host to a series of talks from companies forging the VR landscape in 2016. Battlezone developers Rebellion, photo sharing platform Flickr (who recently launched an app for Gear VR), VRWC sponsor AMD’s Roy Taylor, The Assembly developer nDreams and the BBC, to name just some scheduled to speak so far.
The latest big news is that well respected virtual reality developers Kite and Lightning, creators of Senza Peso and the recent GE Neuro experience, will use the VR World Congress as the venue to debut their next VR project, Bebylon: Battle Royale – described in a recent interview with Road to VR‘s Kent Bye as “Vehicular Melee Party Brawler” or a ‘Comedy Tabletop’ game. Whatever the case, K&L’s track record means we’re probably in for something pretty unique.
The 2016 VRWC is to be held at the Marriott City Centre Hotel in Bristol, UK ont he 12th of April and tickets are on sale now – with Expo Only passes starting at £32.25 with full event passes and accommodation bundles available.
