Dextra Hosts 4-Day Summit on VR in VR; Panels Hosted on AltspaceVR
Dextra is a global collaborative platform for creative endeavors, bringing together participants in 250 “dexes” (or creative concentrations) around the world. Dextra will be hosting a 4-day Summit on VR in VR, the Dextra Global VR Summit, October 27th-30th, with five panels hosted on AltspaceVR, the leading social platform for virtual reality.
Dextra has assembled 35+ thought leaders and visionaries from the VR industry to explore the state of the industry and game-changing technology through the lens of creative applications. Speaking on the origins of the summit, Dextra CEO Divyaansh Anuj said, “At Dextra, we empower organizations and individuals to express themselves by collaborating across all genres of creativity. VR is at the cutting edge of human expression. Being an online global community, it made sense to do an event which has no physical or geographical limitations. To bring the same sense of interaction as with a physical event, while highlighting the capabilities of the technology, we decided to do the summit in VR. We felt it to be crucial to expose our extremely talented community to what they can do with VR and what VR could do for them.”
The four-day event will feature panels, speakers and demos from companies such as NVIDIA, HumanEyes, Sketchfab, Lucid VR and Digital Domain. Panel topics, such as “Storytelling in VR,” “Basics of VR Content Creation,” “How to Get a Career in VR” and “VR Gaming,” will address beginners and experienced VR professionals alike. The panels will be hosted on AltspaceVR’s platform. In addition, a number of pioneering VR luminaries, including Jonathan Nafarrete, VR Scout’s Editor-in-Chief; John Bucher, Senior Strategist at Sideshow Media Group (named by Disruptor as one of the top 25 influencers in VR); and Ted Schilowitz, Futurist at Paramount Pictures, will be sharing their insights as speakers throughout the Summit.
The Summit will be held virtually allowing users to join anywhere via smartphone or computer and to view the content in 2D, 360 and VR. Attendees will have the ability to ask questions during the panels via AltspaceVR and to network with speakers, panelists and other attendees throughout the Summit via the Dextra mobile app.
Dextra has maintained much lower ticket prices than a traditional conference to make the event accessible. Registration at https://www.dextra.com/globalvrsummit
