Oculus Connect is this week, and there are going to be a few highlights outside the show floor. This year, a new VR awards show is making its debut in Hollywood on the evening of September 19th, 9PM. We’re looking forward to checking this out. In addition to seeing some familiar names in the awards docket, a fun addition is having Thomas Middleditch from the hit HBO comedy Silicon Valley doing the hosting. A nice touch!
Equally exciting is the TechCrunch Virtual Reality Meetup taking place on September 18th (6:30PM – 9:30PM) at the Mondrian Hotel Skybar. Free drinks, VR…what more could you ask for?!?
Last but not least, if you are going to Oculus Connect, we’re really proud to report that ITA members Sebastien Kuntz from I’m in VR and John Gaeta, Creative Director of New Experiences at Lucasfilm will be giving presentations and speaking on panels. Oculus obviously has a great lineup this year!
