A. This will be our second annual VR and Healthcare symposium, expanding to two full days of lecture presentations, workshops, breakout sessions and exhibitors. Last June, we held the first dedicated conference on the east coast focused on the impact that virtual reality will have within healthcare at George Washington University.
In the fall of 2016, we organized a 5-city virtual reality (VR) event tour to help give people their very first VR experience, and to better understand what’s happening at a high level in the industry.
We feel that the best impact we can have on the industry and for individuals is to focus on key verticals where investment and development is its highest in VR today. Healthcare being one.
The upcoming conference in March being held at the Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School is quickly moving toward being a landmark event for the VR and healthcare space in 2018. Both long established researchers and new ones will be attending, as well as many of the companies that are the first to commercialize the space.
