When AMD, Nvidia, and Intel are all speaking on the same know you've got to be there!

As part of the Virtual Reality Festival during CES 2016, The Immersive Technology Alliance is holding a full afternoon of sessions about virtual and augmented reality.  Everyone participating is a top executive, and we wanted this to be so good and so densely packed, people wouldn't have an excuse to go back to the Las Vegas Convention Centre!

Just some of the names speaking include Samsung Electronics, HTC, AMD, Nvidia, Intel, Basemark, Futuremark, Starbreeze Studios, ImmersiON-VRelia, IM360, Jaunt Studios, Next Galaxy Corp, and more.  This is arguably the biggest immersive tech happening at CES - don't miss it.
