VR/AR Global Summits are world-class events bringing together the best knowledge and networking in VR & AR for enterprise, hardware, software and content providers from across the globe. We are hosting the Summit in Vancouver for many good reasons!

  • Vancouver is the 2nd largest VR/AR ecosystem in the world, after Silicon Valley, with over 230 companies working in VR/AR, and our Summit is the premier event in the region.

  • As the #1 VFX & Animation cluster globally, the #3 largest Film & TV production centre in North America, and a top 10 video game development centre, Vancouver is proving how important it is to leverage the convergence of film, visual effects, animation, games, and VR AR technology.

  • Vancouver’s fast emerging VR AR sector benefits from a longstanding legacy in the film, video game & tech industries: a 40-plus-year legacy in film & television production. More than 30 years of cutting-edge VFX & animation.

  • As one of the most creative cities in the world, Vancouver is home to thousands of world-leading Film, TV, VFX, Animation, and Video Game companies, including Sony Pictures Imageworks, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), MPC, Double Negative, DHX Media, Animal Logic and Bardel Entertainment, Electronic Arts (EA), Microsoft, Capcom and Nintendo.
