One of VRDays Europe’s missions is to unite the XR community. This year being special, it’s impossible to bring together thousands of people from all around the world in one place. But because we all missed being together, and seeing each other in the real world, we organize Satellite Events.
On Friday November 6, anyone can take part in one of the small scale corona-friendly events happening across the world. You can’t come to Amsterdam, so we bring VRDays to you! Organized with partners, these Satellite Events invite you to workshops, conferences, and real live networking.
Bringing the VRDays programme in the VRDays spirit to you.
