    Thanks for helping put the word out, Ben. At the last VRLA, a few industry veterans told me the crowd was at least as big as the biggest VR expos they ever saw in the 90s. I think we had about 1,000 people at the last one. Here’s to making the next one the biggest VR event LA has ever seen!

    Omg Guys. Think … many already have VRs! Why not make an VR event for the VR event? What better way to make news or a big splash on the net?

    But personally for me going to the states being a dad with 2 kids is a no go. But make a VR event and ull find me there.

    Make VR event, Ill buy a ticket for it!
