More about VRLA:
VRLA is the largest – and most accessible – conference and exhibition in the industry. The 5th annual event takes place on May 4th & 5th at the sprawling Los Angeles convention center in the beating heart of the entertainment industry. The not-for-profit event is organized by John Root of the Technicolor Experience Center, who represents the more established wing of the nascent industry, and Cosmo Scharf, creator of popular VR experience “Mindshow”. The two connected on Reddit in 2014, when then USC student Scharf suggested an LA VR meetup and Root offered the Digital Domain motion capture stage, thinking of a more conventional industry gathering. They met in a Vietnamese noodle shop and conceived a unique event somewhere in the middle, what Root calls “The peoples VR conference. A platform for everyone to stand and be heard.” He elaborated further in an email earlier this week. “There were two visions. Mine, which was to gather all the C level executives, hot content creators, decision makers and big money fat cats to talk about VR. And then Cosmo’s, which was to geek out about VR in a coffee shop with his college friends.”
