LOS ANGELES — Passes are now avaiable to VRLA 2018 (http://virtualrealityla.com), the upcoming tech expo that focuses on immersive and transformative technology. Set to take place May 4th and 5th, the show will allow attendees to experience how VR, AR, and other emerging technologies are creating a positive new future for the world. The expo will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center and will feature hundreds of tech demos, educational sessions, presentations, and product launches. Passes have a starting price of $30.
“Excitement for VR and AR has never been solely about immersive headsets,” says Cosmo Scharf, co-founder of VRLA.
“It’s rooted in a deeper desire to better understand ourselves and reality itself, aligned with a new generation of technologies capable of raising the collective consciousness. With this year’s theme, ‘A New Reality,’ we’re expanding the expo’s scope beyond VR and AR to explore new ways emergent technology improves our lives in and out of the headset. New verticals include AI, Internet of things, robotics, blockchain, 3D printing, alternative energy, cryptocurrency, biotech, and more.”
Additionally, attendees can look forward to next-gen haptics, VR arcades, 360 cameras, motion simulators, 3D scanners, and the latest in CG and VFX technology across the show floor.
“We’re thrilled to offer attendees even more ways to taste the future and open a conversation about how technology can help us manifest the reality we deserve,” adds Scharf.
VRLA has grown from a 100-person meetup group in 2014 into a two-day expo attracting 12,000-plus tech fans from around the world.
