Meet VRTogether at VRDays 2020!

VRTogether returns to VRDays, the main European event on immersive content, to showcase how technology can enrich our lives and enhance our human well-being. Travelling to another country, visiting the hospital, providing a safer work environment or enjoying an exhibition are some of the experiences enabled by VRTogether innovative Social VR system, which allows users to share their experience with others in a photorealistic way and with a significant improvement of the feeling of being there together. From 4th to 6th of November, VRTogether will be joining a line-up of XR companies, investors, and industry experts for a series of online conferences, exhibitions and networking events to explore how immersive technologies shape the world of tomorrow.

VRTogether will actively participate in several activities taking place during the 3-day event:
