SAN FRANCISCO— The 2nd annual Virtual Reality Strategy (VRS) Conference will welcome more than 400 industry professionals from more than a dozen countries to San Francisco. VRS 2017 takes place October 25th and 26th at the Hilton Financial District San Francisco Hotel.
Greenlight Insights predicts the virtual reality market will become a major global marketplace with total hardware, software and service revenues exceeding $70B generated by 2022. Platform providers, digital media producers, marketers, and designers recognize a bright future for virtual reality technology and applications, and are thus committing significant organizational resources to strategy development and execution. VRS 2017 is poised to help fast track strategic initiatives while outlining new opportunities for growth.
"This year's theme, a clear path to growth, demonstrates how leading innovators meet tangible business goals using immersive technologies to create experiences that range from low-tech immersive entertainment to highly sophisticated organizational workflows," said Clifton Dawson, CEO of Greenlight Insights. "Two important aspects of the Virtual Reality Strategy Conference are that it features highly curated research-driven programming and gives executives an intimate forum to share strategic insights and network.”
