Los Angeles, CA: Get up to date on the latest VR and AR creative and technical developments at VRLA, the premiere virtual and augmented reality conference, taking place April 14 and 15 at the Los Angeles Convention Center! VRLA will offer presentations from the greatest minds in immersive technology for industry professionals, along with hundreds of VR and AR experiences and installations for gaming and media enthusiasts.

This year’s keynote addresses will be delivered by Unity CEO John Riccitiello on Friday and “Rick & Morty” Co-Creator Justin Roiland on Saturday. Prospective attendees can register for the business-focused Pro Pass at $299 or a Saturday Pass priced at $40.

“This is the third year of VRLA, and with each event we’ve grown in size and scope. It’s so exciting to serve both the industry and developers who make this whole thing go, as well as the VR-curious who want to see what it’s all about. That we can put Justin Roiland on the same stage as Unity CEO John Riccitiello and many of the industry’s greatest technical thinkers is a treat and a testament to the support the community has shown us,” said Cosmo Scharf, co-founder of VRLA.

The expo will feature workshops and panels with industry-leading hardware and software developers, content creators, and cutting-edge prototype technology that can only be seen on-site at the event. VRLA has also partnered with IEEE VR to bring the latest scientific research in virtual reality to this year’s event with special session topics ranging from virtual humans and avatars, to locomotion and navigation in virtual environments.
