Today, VR/AR Checks In to iGaming for RealPublished April 3, 2017 by Lee R
Prague is the place to be today to join the AV technology revolution.
The global gathering of VR/AR experts begins today at VR/AR Conference 2017.
VR Technology Meets iGaming
Experts from all over the world will convene to develop and integrate innovative Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technologies within iGaming.
The conference will be held today, April 3rd at Andel’s by Vienna House Prague, Stroupeznickeho 21, 150 00 Prague 5, within Prague’s hip and trendy Andel district.
The VR/AR conference will host a well-balanced array of software/hardware developers; designers; companies providing services and tools for VR/AR projects; offline/online casino owners; owners of betting companies; specialists in marketing; PR, digital marketing; gambling; and IT gambling/IT sales department specialists.
Two Areas of Specialisation
The specialised conference will be divided into sections: the Developer section for innovation creators and the Business section for operators and marketers of VR/AR technologies.
A major portion of the conference will predictably be devoted to the networking demo zone, where attendees will have the chance to get involved with VR casino projects, test VR/AR novelties and try out products on display.
No shortage of experts will be on hand to speak at the one-day two pronged affair either. Well-known iGaming representatives such as Alexandre Tomic of Alea/SlotsMillion and Tal Zamstein of Fortuna will be joined by VR experts such as Kevin Williams of KWP Limited, who designed his first Bear George game at the dawn of the computer age in 1984; and Principal Software Engineer Amir Ebrahimi of Unity Technologies, whose Unity crossplatform game engine is enabling rapid VR integration apps for mobile, desktop and VR devices.
